Triple H posted on social media that he and WWE are sending a custom WWE Title to the NBA Champion Toronto Raptors. The Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday to bring the first-ever NBA Championship to Canada.
The tweet read:
“Congrats to @Klow7, @Kawhileonard and the entire @Raptors organization on bringing their first @NBA title to Toronto! Can’t wait to celebrate with all of you @SummerSlam, August 11 @ScotiabankArena. Until then, enjoy this @WWE Championship! #WeTheNorth,” Triple H wrote on the Raptors.

Nothing New For WWE
This is a practice WWE does quite often. They recently sent a custom title to the St. Louis Blues for winning the Stanley Cup in the NHL Finals and many teams have received custom belts from WWE in the past. A number of them wear those belts in celebration parades and when bringing the trophies back to their home cities.
A ton of athletes are WWE fans and it’s a fun time for everyone.
WWE will also be heading to Toronto for SummerSlam this year so it feels even more fitting that they send a title only a month before that big event.
