KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A professional wrestler with Kansas roots showed support for his home team Sunday night -- in Tennessee Titans territory.

WWE superstar Baron Corbin, who also goes by the moniker “King Corbin,” unveiled a Kansas City Chiefs jersey during a live event in Tennessee, after the Chiefs defeated the Titans and earned their first trip to the Super Bowl in five decades.

The Lenexa, Kansas, native told the crowd in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that the Titans “bowed down” to the Chiefs, and he received a chorus of boos in response.

He also tweeted earlier in the night that he would be "calling in sick" on Feb. 2.
