Mexico: The largest entertainment sporting event, known in the United States as the Super Bowl of Lucha Libre, captivated the four-time NFL title winner, legendary Joe Montana.
Via Twitter, the former 1980s San Francisco 49ers midfielder showed an unknown photo of him holding an old wrestling championship, and taking advantage of the fact that WrestleMania 37 takes place on Saturday and Sunday, he asked WWE a chance to “get in the ring” to be the champ.
“Someone called WWE and told them I was ready for my championship match,” this was posted by the four-time Super Bowl winner.
When a legend of this size asks for something, someone of the same caliber should have the courtesy and the person in charge of inviting Montana to a show parade was Triple H, one of the most successful wrestlers ever and the current vice president of the company.
“Well Joe, you have half an hour to get to Raymond James Stadium, drive carefully. He replied, ‘And maybe you’d like to bring the coat, just in case.”
WrestleMania was a space for some American football players to get into the series as guests and even to fight, like the case of William Perry and Lawrence Taylor in the 1980s and 1990s; Most recently there was Rob Gronkowski, who even won the WWE Championship 24/7.
