Do you smell what Golden Tate is cookin’?
The Detroit Lions wide receiver did his best imitation of former WWE champion and current A-list movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson by landing the “People’s Elbow” on the football during a touchdown celebration in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison between Tate and the “People’s Champ” provided by Deadspin’s Twitter account:
In fairness, the only thing that could top the celebration was the actual touchdown itself. Tate broke several tackles before outrunning the coverage and front-flipping his way into the end zone.
The Lions put on an epic comeback to make it a game against the Saints on Sunday.
