The Stanley Cup Playoffs concluded on Wednesday night and new champions were crowned. The Tampa Bay Lightning won the Cup over the Montreal Canadians in a five game series. They are getting props from all over for this big win.

WWE will often send out title belts to winners of big sporting events. The Stanley Cup was no different as WWE sent out a custom World Tile belt their way. Triple H posted a photo of the belt along with a caption to celebrate Tampa Bay’s big win.

New year, same result.. Congrats to @86Kucherov, Andrei Vasilevskiy, the entire @TBLightning organization and the city of Tampa Bay on a dominating performance in the #StanleyCup finals. Time to make room for another custom @WWE Championship! #GoBolts

WWE and the Tampa Bay area have a fond relationship. Over the past couple of years WWE has called Tampa home and they recently hosted WrestleMania in the city. Last year’s Mania event was supposed to be in the Raymond James Stadium, but it was nixed due to the pandemic. They also ran the ThunderDome out of the city, a tenue they are wrapping up this week to go back on tour.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
