Jason Kelce Jumps Into The Ring At WrestleMania 40

Earlier in the month, wrestler The Miz said he would love to train Jason Kelce if he decided to join WWE after his football career.

“He could be very dangerous in a WWE ring — not only with just the athleticism and the part of the wrestling, which I think he can absolutely do,” The Miz told TMZ. “I watched him jump up at a Bills game from, like, down and jump up into a window, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this guy is 300 pounds, how did he do that? Thatโ€™s incredible.'”

However, he refused to say whether or not Jason Kelce had any plans to make an appearance in the ring.

Now, fans see why The Miz wouldn’t answer any direct questions. He didn’t want to spoil the big surprise.

Wrestlers Rey Mysterio and Andrade were pitted against Dominik Mysterio and Santos Escobar. The Eagles players gave Rey Mysterio and Andrade the upper hand, ultimately helping them win the fight.
