A while back we told you about former WWF and WWE wrestling champion Dwyane Johnson, aka The Rock, sending his WWE Championship Belt to LeBron James as a gift for his birthday. Welp, the former wrestling star, turned actor, followed through on his promise, and LeBron showed off the belt in an Instagram video tonight.
Before panning down with his camera phone to the championship belt in question, James hollered The Rock’s signature phrase, “Can you smell what the Rock is cooking?!?!?!” before pantomiming the eyebrow arch that was a staple of the Rock’s wrestling performance when he was still on the circuit.
Then LeBron paid homage to the wrestlers he dug growing up in his caption to the video:
Special thanks to @therock for making my childhood dream come true! U have no idea how many couches and old mattresses I jumped off thinking I was one of y’all! U, Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Legion of Doom, Goldberg and The Undertaker I could watch all day plus many more! I feel like a little kid again. Thanks again Champ! #CanUSmell #StriveForGreatness
Only LeBron could tweet about wanting a championship belt for his birthday and get one faster than I get a response from my cable provider. It’s good to be the King, but heavy lies the crown — especially when there’s a KiD looking to take it away.
