WWE's presence felt at the NBA Finals

Earlier this week, LeBron James arrived for practice wearing a throwback Undertaker shirt, hoping to lead his Cleveland Cavaliers out from a two-game deficit in the NBA Finals. After winning Game 5, the Cavs fully embraced WWE's influence heading into Game 6 with hope of tying the series.

Rising from certain doom, "King James" led the Cavs onto the court to The Phenom's unmistakable entrance theme.


The Cavs faithful also showed their WWE-inspired support for their hometown squad, using giant Superstar heads to try and distract Golden State Warriors players. Former WWE Superstar Michelle McCool was in attendance and shared a close-up view of one of the giant heads.

This wasn't the first time Cavs fans have used WWE Superstar heads to distract their opponents. During the Conference Finals, numerous WWE Superstars made an appearance to prevent the Toronto Raptors from making free throws.

Cruiserweight Classic competitor Johnny Gargano summed up the game's result perfectly.

The WWE influence was certainly strong and undoubtedly worked as Cleveland tied the series. They'll now head back to Oakland for Game 7.
