Travis Kelce caught a Patrick Mahomes pass late in the third quarter of Thursday’s game against the Chargers and wound up in the middle of a WWE move.
Kelce turned toward the middle of the field and ran into 6-foot-2, 215-pound Derwin James. The Chargers’ superb DB lifted the 6-foot-5, 250-pound tight end and slammed him to the turf.
J.C. Jackson was able to help his fellow secondary member for LA with an assist on the body slam.

The ball came loose and went into the end zone, where the Chargers recovered.
However, the officials ruled Kelce was down by contact.
The Chiefs continued the drive and finished with a field goal that tied the game early in the fourth quarter at 17.
And if you wanted to hear what the call would have sounded like if legendary wrestling announcer Jim Ross would have been on the mic.
