Hunter Pence and the San Francisco Giants are apparently fans of WWE superstar Daniel Bryan. Pence launched a two-run homer in the first inning against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday and paid tribute to the people’s champion as he was heading into the dugout.
Pence was met at the top step by outfielder Michael Morse, and the two raised their arms to the sky and chanted “YES! YES! YES!”
Plenty of MLB players are big WWE fans, as Josh Reddick reminded us last month when he honored the late Ultimate Warrior during an interview. Bryan recently announced that he will miss a minimum of 6-8 weeks with a neck injury, but he said he is confident the “YES!” movement will remain as strong as ever when he returns. Pence and company are going to make sure of that.
