Then, Dwayne The Rock Johnson, who had a failed career in the CFL, spotlighted in Young Rock which will return on March 15, and is the new owner of the XFL, got to kick off the Super Bowl as only The Most Electrifying Man in all of Entertainment can.

Also, WWE released its Super Bowl ad for the upcoming WrestleMania event in April which also spotlighted Monday Night Raw. Both properties are associated with NBCUniversal, as is the Super Bowl tonight.

On the game's pre-show, Nikki Bella was seen promoting America's Got Talent Extreme along with Terry Crews. She was sporting WWE-style gear with an America's Got Talent theme.

Former WWE Champion Batista was also featured in a Nissan commercial that co-starred Eugene Levy. After the game, Los Angeles Rams players were seen celebrating with customized WWE Championships to commemorate the victory.
