Ben Roethlisberger Ignores Pro Bowl, Rocks Grizzly Beard At WWE ‘Royal Rumble’ Instead (GIF)


The NFL is hoping that some new rules and a new roster format will help attract more viewers to the Pro Bowl this season. Apparently some players aren’t taking the bait.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has played in a pair of Pro Bowls (2007 and 2011) in the past, but, seeing as he wasn’t selected for a team this season, he decided against even watching the game. Instead, Big Ben opted to take in one of his other interests at the WWE Royal Rumble.

A grizzly-looking Roethlisberger was hanging out down near ringside and watching one of the major wrestling events of the year, which conveniently was taking place in Pittsburgh, Pa., this year.

Check out Roethlisberger and his big beard excitedly cheering on some body slams in the GIF below.
