The Steelers With the Three Count

He scored the touchdown, then did the job

The National Football League relaxed the rules on celebrations for this year. It was a long time coming, to be honest; while some fuddy-duds maintained that these men are PROFESSIONALS who shouldn't engage in things like fun or showing human emotion, most recognize that at heart, these men are playing a game. Why not let them celebrate a little after scoring a touchdown or getting a turnover? Some of the celebrations have been elaborate. My team, the Eagles, has been at the forefront of notable expressions after touchdowns, but if one other team could rival them, it'd be the cross-state Steelers, who struck again last night during their come-from-behind 23-20 win over their rivals, the Bengals.

Obviously, this is The Wrestling Blog, not The Football Blog (Footbawl?), so their celebration last night had to be wrestling themed in order to be noted here, and guess what? It was. LeVeon Bell scored the team's first touchdown, and then this happened:
Honestly, if Antonio Brown were the referee at Starrcade '97, it would've worked out a lot better for Sting and possibly Bret Hart, because that, my friends, was a fast count. Anyway, it was a simple celebration, but it was undoubtedly pro wrestling, and at the end of the day, isn't that the important thing? It's also far less violent than the average wrestling move performed on the field, so that's a plus.
