CJ Uzomah goes viral for WWE moment in front of Bengals fans

CJ Uzomah smiles

CJ Uzomah definitely knows how to hype up a crowd.

The Cincinnati Bengals tight end went viral on Monday for a moment that looked like it was straight out of WWE. Before heading to Los Angeles for Super Bowl LVI against the Rams on Sunday, the Bengals greeted their fans at Paul Brown Stadium as part of a pep rally. 30,000 Bengals fans were in attendance, and Uzomah gave every single one of them their money’s worth.

Uzomah has been dealing with a knee injury, leading to speculation about whether he will play in the Super Bowl. But he provided an answer to that question at the pep rally by dramatically ripping off his knee brace and throwing it aside to raucous cheers from the entire crowd.

Take a look at the awesome video.

Ric Flair could not have done it any better.

Uzomah, who was fourth on the Bengals in catches and receiving yards this season, also said on Monday that he is feeling “really, really good.”

The 29-year-old was injured in the AFC title game on Jan. 30 (video here) and had to be carted off the field. But if Uzomah’s theatrics here are any indication, he will definitely be ready to go come Super Bowl Sunday.
