WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is sending World War II veteran Captain Tom Moore a custom title in honor of his 100th birthday and amazing charity work.
McIntyre’s gift is also to commemorate Moore’s contributions to society, including his fundraising efforts for the National Health Service. Moore raised more than £29 million for a sponsored walk in his own garden and he also holds a record for being the oldest artist to reach the top spot of BBC Radio 1’s The Official Chart.
“I am proud that WWE has created a WWE Championship title for Captain Tom Moore featuring personalized side plates to celebrate his 100th birthday and commemorate his achievements for the NHS. He is a true hero who stepped up when his country called in World War II and who stepped up again today with the same selfless courage and determination to help others,” McIntyre told Metro (UK). “At WWE, our mission is to put smiles on people’s faces around the world. Captain Tom Moore has achieved that by uniting millions across the world in support of his truly outstanding fundraising endeavors. Captain Tom, I look forward to shaking your hand in person someday.”
As WWE Champion it is my honor, on behalf of @WWE, to celebrate the 100th birthday and extraordinary achievements of @CaptainTomMoore with a personalized WWE title. Happy birthday sir, and thank you. #WalkWithTom #CaptainTomMoore pic.twitter.com/UIRkTBpTnd
