Back in May this year, the welcome news came through that the NFL were relaxing the rules on player celebrations and allowing them to get a little more creative after a score.
This has led to group dances, press conferences and duck-duck-goose in the end zone after a touchdown and we believe the league is a better place for it this season.

However, Golden Tate raised a few eyebrows last night with his wrestling-inspired festivities after landing a wonderful touchdown for the Detroit Lions against the New Orleans Saints.

Already this year we’ve seen the Walls of Jericho work in MMA, but Tate went a different route and used The Rock’s People’s Elbow manoeuvre to lay the smack-down on the ball.
Even the Great One himself approved it seems!
Heart stoppin’, elbow droppin’.. @ShowtimeTate brings the dangerously exposed elbow to the pigskin today. ?????? #PeoplesElbow @NFL https://t.co/ZLAmJigvDl
