Mumbai Indians lifted third third Indian Premier League crown on Sunday in a cliffhanger, pipping Rising Pune Supergiant by a solitary run. Ever since, congratulatory wishes have been pouring in from all corners incessantly, pretty deserving. From Bollywood to the sporting fraternity, messages have been coming in thick and fast. From Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan and Ranveer Singh expressed their emotions on Twitter. It was a fitting finale where everyone was on the edge of their seat rooting for their favourite team. Lately, we believe WWE COO Triple He is going to present Mumbai Indians with a surprise gift.
It was a stiff task defending 130, but it was Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah along with Mitchell Johnson stepped it up and took MI to its third crown, the highest by any team.
Here is former WWE superstar’s tweet:
Congratulations, @mipaltan. @WWE has something headed your way! @WWEIndia https://t.co/Isjf4gmh1T

If you read the tweet he has kept a surprise gift under the wraps and we guess it may the coveted championship belt, that could be coming the Mumbai Indians way. It also seems like the belt has been crafted a bit differently, as the side plates of the splendid belt will bear the logo of Mumbai Indians. Not bad, Rohit Sharma, this will be a major boost to the confidence of the newly-crowned champions who may be still coming to terms with it. We saw WWE superstars Big E Langston and Kofi Kingston in the Extraa Innings T20 studio this year. It shows a clear strategy that WWE wants to make inroads into the Indian market.
