It’s not often that Anthony Rizzo walks into a room and he’s not the most famous person. But Monday night, Rizzo was overshadowed both in celebrity and stature.
The Cubs All-Star first baseman was in Miami Monday night and went to WWE Raw with his brother. Rizzo spent most of the night photobombing Flo Rida ringside, but when the show ended he met up with the WWE Superstar.
Standing at a reported 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, Johnson has roughly two inches and 40 pounds on Rizzo.
Johnson was the night’s headliner as he returned to Miami, where he played college football for the Hurricanes. Now a successful actor, Johnson has returned sporadically to the WWE.
Clearly a fan of the WWE, Cubs fans can only hope that Rizzo doesn’t put his body in harms way like some famous Chicago athletes in the past. Steve McMichael, William Perry, Dennis Rodman and Brian Urlacher have all made appearances inside the wrestling ring.
