One of the biggest games in sporting culture, the Super Bowl took place last night, with Kansas City Chiefs taking down San Francisco 49ers, 31-20. Super Bowl is usually the event with the highest viewership of any show on American television, which makes it a highly sought after event for several shows to advertise themselves.
WWE became a part of FOX network after SmackDown moved to the channel last October, and that has helped WWE to become a part of the mainstream media in recent times. After Roman Reigns and King Corbin interviewed several footballers last week in the lead-up to the Super Bowl, WWE made an appearance on the telecast as well.
The Rock provided the intro for the show, with superstars like Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks, John Cena, Daniel Bryan and Ric Flair showing up during the advertisements during the show.
AJ Styles was also pictured in the audience, and the Phenomenal One is a huge football fan and has religiously supported his home state team Atlanta Falcons.
WWE’s COO and CBO, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, also showed up for the event, with the first couple of All Elite Wrestling, Cody and Brandi Rhodes, also making their presence felt at the event. It is unsure whether the two parties crossed paths, as their interaction would make for an interesting discussion.
King Corbin, who is a former football player himself, judiciously supported his home team Kansas City and made a bet with fellow SmackDown star Naomi on the matchup. If Corbin’s team lost, Naomi would get to wear his crown for a day, and if Corbin won, Naomi would bow down and plead allegiance to the King.
Since Kansas City won, it will be a matter of time before Naomi joins the King’s entourage. Corbin is currently in a feud with Naomi’s better half on SmackDown, and we can surely expect this incident to come up on the next episode of SmackDown.
