WWE Superstars react to Cleveland Cavaliers winning the NBA Championship
The Cleveland Cavaliers’ thrilling Game 7 victory over the Golden State Warriors had everyone talking, including WWE Superstars. For many Clevelanders, especially The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, it marked the end of a 52-year championship drought.
Noted LeBron James fan and WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair sent his congratulations to King James, who rocked an Undertaker T-shirt at practice before Game 5 of the series. The Cavs won the three games that followed and knocked off the record-breaking Warriors, who won 73 regular season games and broke a record previously held by Michael Jordan’s 1995-96 Chicago Bulls.
Columbus, Ohio, native Dana Brooke also showed off her Ohio pride before WWE Money in the Bank and Game 7 kicked off.
Absolute domination! Congrats @KingJames! You are the man! WOOOOO!— Ric Flair® (@RicFlairNatrBoy) June 20, 2016
The Cavaliers players celebrated the title in “Stone Cold” Steve Austin style in the locker room, with Kevin Love sporting an “Austin 3:16” T-shirt and other players passing around a Smoking Skull Championship.
