Like Hulk Hogan joining Kevin Nash and Scott Hall to form the New World Order back at Bash at the Beach in 1996, Kevin Durant joined the Warriors to form a super team that won a championship. It seems fitting that Golden State will get a pro wrestling belt to commemorate the occasion.
World Wrestling Entertainment’s Triple H tweeted out Tuesday a photo of the WWE championship belt that will be given to the Warriors, complete with customized Golden State sideplates.

They’re not the only ones. The Penguins will also get a belt with custom sideplates after winning the Stanley Cup.

It has become a tradition over the years for the WWE to present a championship belt to professional sports teams that win titles.
The Patriots received one for winning Super Bowl LI in February.
