WWE and the NFL have had a good relationship over the years
WWE and the NFL are two huge giants who have taken over the world of sports and television. With outstanding ratings on TV, huge fan support, and extraordinary talents, both companies are famous worldwide. Many of the current superstars are also former NFL players who played football in their early careers. The current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, is an example.
Almost eight members of the WWE’s Hall of Fame have been a part of the NFL during their illustrious careers. There have been plenty of moments where NFL players have also been a part of the Stamford-based promotion over the years. Looking at their prestigious bond over the years, WWE and the NFL announced a multi-year licensing deal to create custom NFL Title belts in August 2023.
Since then, WWE has made several belt designs for all 32 teams, featuring the official colors, logos, emblems, and branding of all the teams. Over the years, several NFL superstars have made guest appearances in the Stamford-based promotion. The most notable appearance was Rob Gronkowski’s at WrestleMania 33. Gronk made the save for Mojo Rawley and made him win the Andre the Giant Battle Royal.
In another instance, NFL stars Chad Ochocinco and Ben Roethlisberger were guest hosts for WWE RAW in 2009. WrestleMania 2 also featured a battle royal that featured several NFL players and WWE Superstars. One of the best athletes to ever play American football is Lawrence Taylor, who spent his entire NFL career with the New York Giants. He also graced WrestleMania with his grace in 1995.

Rey Mysterio attended the Super Bowl in Las Vegas to cheer on the 49ers in the championship game recently. Mysterio had previously backed the Las Vegas Raiders during the NFL’s inaugural season. Not only did he feel let down by the outcome, but so did Naomi, Jimmy Uso, and Bayley, who had all come to cheer for the 49ers.
Along with the three WWE stars was Sasha Banks, the hottest free agent and former WWE star. They appeared to have a terrific get-together and a lovely day, even though their preferred team lost. Titus O’Neil attended the function as well.
