PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA: Jason Kelce, the recently retired Philadelphia Eagles center, might land a new role. WWE is reportedly making a play for the former NFL star to be involved in its biggest event of the year.

According to Fightful, WWE has reached out to the retired offensive lineman and Eagles legend ahead of the two-day show at Lincoln Financial Field on April 7 and 8.

Jason Kelce, 36, played all 13 of his NFL seasons for the Eagles before declaring he was hanging up his boots after the team missed out on the Super Bowl the previous two seasons and lost to the Buccaneers in the wild-card round this past season.

Now, WWE has reportedly reached out to the father of three. 


Earlier, while watching brother Travis and the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round of the playoffs en route to their second consecutive Super Bowl title, Kelce went shirtless while sipping a beer.

In March, Jason Kelce got to jump through a flaming table as part of his 'New Heights' podcast that he hosts with his brother in an attempt to recreate the Bills Mafia tailgate experience.

Athletes like Ronda Rousey, Pete Rose, Shaquille O'Neal, and Rob Gronkowski have all been on the shot over the years. It's, however, uncertain what Jason may do at WrestleMania should a deal work out.

Given Kelce's current level of fame, having him participate in the event would be exciting for Philadelphia supporters. Since his brother Travis started dating 14-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift, the Kelce family has been making headlines in sports and entertainment. Travis and Swift have been present to support each other at events like concerts and games.

Swift also spent her Easter weekend with Travis and his brother Jason's family, as per reports.

Internet divided on WWE reaching out to Jason Kelce 

Several social media users slammed the WWE for reaching out to Jason Kelce, while some were excited to see the retired NFL appear in WWE's most anticipated event. 

An Instagram user wrote, "I would rather have WWE legends appear than celebrities who have nothing to do with the industry. I hope Taker, Austin Cena, Hbk, Triple H, etc. will appear. They are more important and deserve to have a big moment at the festival on the

occasion of the 40th anniversary of WrestleMania." 

One person wrote, "We don't want this lol." Another user said, "Stop they really need views what's next Taylor swift please stop trying to ruin everything for clout." 

Another one said, "No need for that." An individual commented, "As a part time eagles fan. Sure why not. Just don't have no Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift crap going on." A user said, "They're trying to ride that swiftie train. How low of them." 

One individual said, "This is awesome. Most of the audience will be from Philly so I say yes." Another user said, "It would make WrestleMania actually worth watching."
