Now that George Kittle is out as a wrestling fan, he can't stop talking about wrestling.
Speaking to NBC Sports’ Jennifer Lee Chan, Kittle went into detail about his love for the sport.
“I think the script is a little messed up right now,” Kittle said. “They said they were going to fix it, and I believe them. I'm looking forward to see what they do. You have Dean Ambrose back, and his feud with Seth Rollins is great. One of my favorite things is when I see guys flying out of the ring 24-7. Ladders matches, stuff like that. I love when there's not a single second of down time. Everyone getting pushed, fight, fight, fight, fall out of the ring, and the next guy comes in. He falls out, next guy comes in. It’s like a rotation of six guys. The fast-paced stuff is what really interests me,” Kittle said. “… In Ring of Honor, they have guys that do 25-minute matches, but they feel like 5 minutes because there is so much stuff going on. You're just like, 'Oh my goodness. This is incredible.’”
Kittle was ringside for WWE TLC last Sunday. He rushed out of his post-game press conference following last week's game to make sure he was there in time for the event.
“It was pretty epic. It was super cool,” Kittle said. “That was one of the most fun times I’ve had watching a women’s match because they killed it. They did a lot better than a lot of other things I’ve seen. Definitely the best main event I’ve seen in a long time.”
Kittle said of Charlotte Flair, "She does things that no one else does. She does a moonsault from the top rope to the ground. That's awesome.”
One person who Kittle isn't a fan of current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.
“I hate it when there is a champion that doesn’t wrestle every week,” Kittle said. “Brock Lesnar wrestles maybe three times a year. I think that’s kind of hard for fans to watch because you’re not really a champion if you don’t wrestle. A championship match. That’s what really excites me.”
Kittle was one of the fantasy locks on the NFL Network for Sunday's slate. In the preview, NFL Network analyst Adam Rank used references to The Elite to praise Kittle. Kittle finished Sunday's game against the Bears with seven catches for 74.
