Houston and Kansas City kicked off the 2020 NFL season last night with limited fans in attendance. The NFL is back and they needed to fill some seats with placeholders until fans can return. Whoever put up the cardboard cutouts in the stands seems to have had a little bit of fun with the placement.
The Rock was seen next to Queen Elizabeth and it appeared that The Great One was getting a bit close to Her Royal Highness. They called this out on commentary and mentioned how friendly they were getting.
Some fans wondered why The Rock and Queen Elizabeth were seated next to each other. WWE The Bump’s Dan Vollmayer tweeted out a video from the game with a caption that summed things up perfectly: “Why ask why? This is tremendous.”
After the game concluded, The Rock took to Twitter to comment on the viral sensation.
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 🤣 Welcome back @NFL, coaches and especially, the players. ✊🏾🥃 🏈 https://t.co/5MMpQqGV8J
