On the day Mumbai Indians won the IPL 2017, coincidentally Indian wrestler Jinder Mahal won the WWE Championship as well. Mumbai Indians is not the only team he sent a belt to. Earlier in 2017 Triple H did a similar gesture for NBA Champions Golden State Warriors by sending the Championship belt to them. Though he took almost 51 days to send the Championship belt and deliver as promised.

Rohit Sharma became the first captain to win the IPL title thrice. With this feat, Mumbai Indians also became the first team to win the IPL title after beating Rising Pune Supergiants in a last-ball thriller.
