‘The People’s Tight End’ George Kittle Channels The Rock Backstage At WWE SmackDown
WWE SmackDown was in San Francisco at the brand new Chase Center and they had some help bidding farewell to their Tuesday stay on the USA Network as George Kittle and his 49er teammates were ringside for the action. Along with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, the tight end Kittle could be seen cheesing behind Corey Graves (who stated that heartthrob Jimmy G was even better looking in-person), Tom Phillips and Byron Saxton as the commentary squad was being shown during the show.

Later backstage, WWE caught up with Kittle for a quick interview and was asked to re-invoke his Rock impersonation that he did in the locker room after defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers this past Sunday. Before that, Kittle spoke on how he is a relatively new wrestling fan (only a few years in to be exact), but he has a passion for it. You can see that passion below:
