Thrust the Process: Embiid pays tribute to WWE stars

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid has paid tribute to his favorite WWE stars during games. Embiid mimicked a crude Degeneration X chop after he was fouled in a Game 2 victory over Washington. Embiid has long expressed his wrestling fandom and members of the Hall of Fame wrestling stable have noticed. WWE star Triple H says Embiid has excellent form. Embiid can complete the full transformation into WWE star with a championship belt around his waist should he lead the Sixers to the NBA title. WWE traditionally sends teams custom-made championship belts. Embiid has the 76ers up 2-0 in their playoff series against Washington. Game 3 is Saturday.
