• While fans were thrilled, not everyone was pleased with a certain NFL player’s cameo at WrestleMania 39. Professional wrestling has seen a resurgence in mainstream entertainment, attracting numerous celebrities to AEW and WWE events. Among those who have impressed in the ring despite not being full-time wrestlers are Bad Bunny and Logan Paul.

One prominent WWE fan is San Francisco 49ers star George Kittle, who has been spotted in the crowd at several WWE events. However, at WrestleMania 39, Kittle got more involved than usual during an impromptu match between Pat McAfee and The Miz.

Kittle’s WrestleMania Moment

During the match, Kittle taunted The Miz from ringside and then delivered a stunning clothesline to the former World Champion, aiding McAfee in securing a victory. This unexpected physical involvement delighted fans but raised concerns within his NFL circles.

A Cautionary Text from the 49ers

In a recent interview with ESPN, Kittle revealed that he received a text from 49ers general manager John Lynch after his WrestleMania antics. The message was clear and concise: “Hope you had fun, don’t do that again.” Kittle admitted that he hadn’t informed the team about his plans to get physical at the event, assuming it would be fine as long as he stayed injury-free.

WrestleMania: A Magnet for NFL Stars

Kittle’s WrestleMania moment seems to have set a trend, as a year later, Philadelphia Eagles stars Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson made their own debuts at WrestleMania. They assisted Rey Mysterio and Andrade in their victory over Santos Escobar and Dominik Mysterio, further blending the worlds of professional wrestling and football.

While George Kittle’s WWE appearance added excitement to WrestleMania 39, it also served as a reminder of the risks involved when athletes from other sports step into the wrestling ring. The 49ers’ cautious approach underscores the need for careful consideration whenever players engage in potentially risky activities outside their primary sport.
