During pre-game warmups, NFL players across the league get to show off their individual style. For Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu Sr. on Sunday, that meant giving a shoutout to a legendary pro wrestler.
Sanu took to social media to show off his pre-game cleats by Under Armour which pay tribute to WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.
The cleats feature taglines from “The Nature Boy” like “kiss stealing” and “jet flying,” along with his trademark “WOOOOO!”
Naitch, who lives in Atlanta, took notice of the cleats and responded to Sanu on Twitter.
Looking As Only As You Can Look… Love It Brother. WOOOOO! https://t.co/A8YJBrG6GJ

Last year, Flair visited the Falcons training camp and provided some motivation to the team. They went on to reach the Super Bowl. We’ll have to see if Sanu’s cleats bring similar luck on Sunday afternoon.
