It’s well documented that George Kittle is a big WWE fan. The 49ers tight end is especially partial to legendary wrestler turned actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and belted out one of his signature catchphrases with a 49ers’ twist after San Francisco’s win over the Steelers on Sunday.

The video got the attention of The Rock, who quote tweeted it, and dubbed George Kittle “The People’s Tight End” (The Rock was known as The People’s Champ during his heyday, a nickname he gave himself in honor of, and with permission from, Muhammad Ali).

Kittle was awestruck, and responded ‘Am I dreaming.’

No George, no you are not.
