Even if you’re not a wrestling fan, you’ve probably heard the name WrestleMania before. It’s the equivalent of what the Super Bowl is to the NFL, and this weekend, they are taking over the 49ers home, Levi’s Stadium.
Hulk Hogan, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton and the rest of the roster are in town for the biggest event on the year for the WWE. One of the most talked about wrestlers on the year, and the winner of the Royal Rumble, will be headlining WrestleMania 31 on Sunday- Roman Reigns. And oh yeah, he also happens to be a major fan of the 49ers!
Check out this tweet from Roman posted last year during the 49ers-Packers Wild Card playoff game:
Reign’s current Twitter profile pic shows him wearing a 49ers baseball cap, check it out here.
If that’s not cool enough, Reigns has been preparing for his heavyweight title match showdown against former UFC superstar Brock Lesnar, here’s a clip of the soon to be champ (hopefully!) working out at the 49ers practice facility:
Sunday’s WrestleMania takes place at Levi’s Stadium, so there’s a good chance several 49er players will be in attendance. And just for kicks, probably the most popular wrestler not named John Cena, is a Seahawks fan- Daniel Bryan.
You can bet that there will be several “trolls” at Levi’s wearing Seahawk jerseys, they have to, it’s part of the fun of the rivalry. Enjoy WrestleMania this weekend everybody, and if you’re a 49ers fan, maybe root for Roman Reigns, a fellow 49ers Faithful.
