LeBron James is definitely smelling what The Rock is cooking, especially after he finally got him what he wanted.

James saw Eagles running back LeSean McCoy with the World Heavyweight Championship after the Eagles’ victory over the Cowboys in Week 17.

This prompted the four-time NBA MVP to ask The Rock via Twitter whether he could hook him up with a WWE title belt. The Rock promised that he’d take care of the two-time NBA Champion and get him one.

A little less than a month later, James received his title belt and put out a quick video and message via Instagram thanking The Rock and showing off his latest piece of gold — one he can put right next to his two Larry O’Brien trophies.

James said in his Instagram message that receiving the title belt was a child dream of his, as he watched legends such as the Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Legion of Doom, Goldberg and The Undertaker while growing up in Ohio.
