Chicago’s potent offense paved the way for the World Series crown, with second baseman Zobrist hitting .357 and first baseman Anthony Rizzo batting .360 in the series. A rain delay briefly halted the game at the end of the ninth inning, but Zobrist delivered in the 10th with a go-ahead RBI double.
The Cubbies got their share of support from the WWE locker room throughout the MLB postseason. WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts released a hype video on Diamond Dallas Page’s YouTube channel to get the Chicago faithful psyched for game six.
Chicago received a custom WWE World Championship in June 2015 when the Chicago Blackhawks captured their sixth NHL Stanley Cup.
The Cubs have a young and exciting core, and with the 108-year-old monkey off their back, perhaps more custom championships will be heading to Wrigleyville in the near future.
