Captain, Leader, Legend. And now, WWE champion

The Chelsea captain was presented with a custom-made WWE heavyweight championship on Saturday as the wrestling organisation decided to honour the Blues legend.

And the world heavyweight title goes to...   -  WWE

John Terry may have to wait till Sunday to get his hands on the Premier League trophy — his fifth with boyhood club Chelsea —but the English defender has already been given another title.

 

The Chelsea captain was presented with a custom-made WWE heavyweight championship on Saturday as the wrestling organisation decided to honour the Blues legend.

While the belt is a replica of the belts given to WWE champions, the plates on either side of it have the Chelsea badge, making this a one-of-a-kind honour for the star defender.

While Terry might not have had to jump from top of steel cages or get smacked by iron chairs, the defender has had his fair share of nasty injuries on the football field which earned him the name of ‘captain fearless’.

 

 

Terry was always ready to put his body on the line to protect his team’s goal and was once at the receiving end of a kick in the face from Arsenal player Abou Diaby in the 2007 League Cup final which knocked him unconscious.

He is likely to play his final game at Stamford Bridge for the side on Sunday when the Blues take on Sunderland, which will be also see the defender lift the Premier League trophy for a record fifth time.
