Najee Harris Makes AEW Cameo
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris made a non-physical appearance on All Elite Wrestling (AEW) last night at AEW Dynamite in Pittsburgh.
Harris tagged along with Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth to accompany "Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D." to the ring ahead of her match with Danielle Kamela.
Baker is a native of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, which is only 90 minutes from Pittsburgh. The former AEW Women's World Champion is essentially a hometown wrestler in the Steel City that she has aptly named "Brittsburgh," so bringing her out with Harris and Freiermuth sent the fans into a frenzy.
The two football players sported Terrible Towels and cheered on Baker much akin to the way thousands of fans cheer them on every Sunday during the NFL season.
In a fun spot, Baker's opponent Danielle Kamela used the Terrible Towel as a weapon, causing her to be serenaded in jeers by the Pittsburgh faithful.
Baker was able to turn the tide of the match with an assist from Freiermuth. She applied her Lockjaw submission utilizing the tight end's glove to force a tap out.
The former Alabama running back seemed to enjoy himself during the harmless segment. Steelers fans were surely thankful that the appearance by the two young stars was not one that saw them take a bump.
