The Rock absolutely loved Travis Kelce’s trash-talking homage during AFC title celebration

It looks like Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has a new fan in one of the most famous people on the planet.

After Kelce channeled Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in his AFC championship trophy speech, the former WWE star-turned-Hollywood actor praised the tight end for his homage.

When The Rock likes what you’re cooking, you know that you’re doing your trash talk at an elite level. Kelce threw around plenty of shade during Sunday’s celebrations, and he’s certainly found a new admirer in one of the shade kings of his generation.

This is just another fantastic feather in Kelce’s cap.

Wow, that’s pretty cool for Kelce. Now that The Rock has given him his stamp of approval, we can bet that Kelce will continue the wrestling vibes into Super Bowl weekend.

If Kelce can take home a second Super Bowl for his career, it’ll make all of his trash talk that much sweeter.
