UPDATE: LeBron James, who celebrated his 29th birthday Monday, took to Twitter and asked for a special gift:
Who do i need to talk to to get one of those World Championship Belt? WWE belt. The real ones— LeBron James (@KingJames) December 30, 2013
James reportedly wanted one after watching Eagles star LeSean McCoy rock one while celebrating his rushing title and Philly's playoff-clinching win over Dallas on Sunday.
Well, WWE stars The Rock and John Cena both responded, and The Rock vowed to deliver this week:
What do Bruce Lee, Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior and the Undertaker have in common?
Those are the four men LeBron James says he was a huge fan of as a kid.
A new feature by Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report reveals who the Heat superstar looks to for inspiration. Lee is one of those men. James even keeps one of Lee's quotes in his locker.
When asked why Lee, James said, "I'm a huge fan. Since I was little."
James then opened up about his love of pro wrestling.
"I was into Bruce Lee, Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan. A huge wrestling guy. Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Undertaker and Bruce Lee was something people may not know about me."
James met Hogan last year at the Cowboys home opener, which led to this solid photo.
This revelation also makes sense given James' desire earlier this week to get his hands on a WWE championship belt.
