Last night was the beginning of the NFL season, and the ongoing global pandemic meant that the Kansas City Chiefs’ stadium only had limited capacity seating for real fans.
Cardboard cut-outs aren’t always a bad substitute for real fans, though, especially when it means The Rock was watching the game alongside the United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II:
The new owner of the XFL then joked about this amusing visual while welcoming back the NFL:
Man it was good to watch football tonight. Defending champs looked great, all players kicked ass, that 17,000 made some noise and my unique relationship with the Queen was revealed— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) September 11, 2020
Welcome back @NFL, coaches and especially, the players. ✊ https://t.co/5MMpQqGV8J
Who would you like to see The Rock paired it up with on the next prime time NFL broadcast?
