Wrestlers in Superbowl LVII


It's the Super Bowl baby! The most watched, beloved & obsessed about sporting event in the U.S. of A.  The Philadelphia Eagles take on the Kansas City Chiefs in #LVII.   Curious to know how many of tonight's players have wrestling backgrounds, I took it upon myself to do a little research. This is what I was able to find.  If there are more, great! Name them, tell me their backgrounds & they'll be added to the list!
