4:07 PM PT -- We just spoke with Drew -- who explained why he was so excited to honor Capt. Moore!!
"That guy is such an inspiration. You talk about heroes?! We play heroes on TV. That man has been a hero his whole life. He never stopped being a hero!"
This. Is. AWESOME!!!
WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre is showing major love for a real-life hero on his 100th birthday ... honoring Captain Tom Moore with his very own championship belt!!
Of course, Capt. Tom -- who served as an officer for the British Army in WWII -- went viral earlier this month when he set out to raise 1,000 pounds for the National Health Service by doing laps around his garden.
Turns out, Capt. Tom raised WAY more than that ... raking in a whopping 29.2 MILLION pounds (over $36 mil!!) for COVID-19 relief.
Drew -- fresh off his HUGE WrestleMania36 win over Brock Lesnar -- decided to show thanks for Cap's contributions throughout his life by sending a super bad-ass commemorative belt for his 100th birthday!!
