The city of Cleveland is still coming to terms with the Cavaliers winning the NBA title on Sunday night against the Golden State Warriors.

While the Larry O'Brien Trophy is getting ready to spend the year in Northern Ohio, it looks like it will have some company, in the shape of a WWE Championship belt.

The WWE have quickly found themselves in a niche and are taking full advantage of it. Already this year, they have sent championship belts to the Super Bowl winners Denver Broncos and Stanley Cup champions Pittsburgh Penguins

It looks like the belt will mean more to Cleveland's players than it will to most. After their Game 7 win. Kevin Love was celebrating in the dressing rooms by wearing an Austin 3:16 t-shirt, famously worn by WWF Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin. He also carried around a championship belt around after the four-point win against Golden State.

Last but not least, when the team arrived back to Cleveland on Monday afternoon, LeBron James was wearing an Ultimate Warrior t-shirt. It was the second time in just over a week, he decided to wear a wrestler's t-shirt after deciding to go to training last week in an Undertaker top. 

Monday's Ultimate Warrior t-shirt, may show how much of a fan James is of the recently deceased star, or it could be a very unsubtle message to those in California.

Either way, that championship belt will find a good home in Cleveland.
