49ers tight end George Kittle has the personality for almost everything, so he shouldn’t have too much trouble transitioning to the WWE after his NFL career is over.

Fans know all too well just how much San Francisco 49ers All-Pro tight end George Kittle likes wrestling.

Like, a lot.

Seriously, he’s a massive fan of it. And to this day, the pinned tweet on his Twitter account is none other than a 2019 shoutout from one of his WWE idols, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

There’s no shortage of content and photos out there of Kittle representing his favorite wrestlers, and it’s not hard to find him in attendance whenever the WWE comes to town (or he’s nearby).

But, what about Kittle joining the WWE as a wrestler himself? Is that in the cards at some point? He is “The People’s Tight End,” after all.

George Kittle would love a spot in WWE after NFL career is over

Yeah, this might look pretty good coming down the tunnel and into the ring:

But, has Kittle actually thought about playing some sort of role in the WWE after his pro football days are over?

Yes, he has.

When asked about the possibility of becoming a wrestler, Kittle simply told TMZ Sports, “Sounds fun!”

Of course, going back to the Pro Bowl, it looks as if both Kittle and Niners fullback Kyle Juszczyk have already been working on their moves and performances:

It’s unknown whether or not Juszczyk is open to a WWE career, too, but perhaps the two form a duo at a tag-team event at some point down the line.

In the interim, Kittle will still be offering his services to San Francisco for quite some time.

However, it’s hard to imagine any 49ers fan turning away from a would-be WWE career for the fan-favorite tight end.
