While Monday Night Raw delivered plenty of action from Madison Square Garden this week, football fans their own taste wrestling action during the Houston Texans-New Orleans Saints Monday Night Football game at the Mercedes-Benz SuperDome.
Late in the third quarter Saints safety Marcus Williams managed to nab an interception from Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. All-pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins quickly wrapped his arms around Williams following the turnover, and tossed him backwards right onto his head via a german suplex.
Hopkins was given an unnecessary roughness penalty for the hit, which helped the Saints score on the following drive and take a 24-21 lead early in the fourth. But that didn't stop fans from being impressed with Hopkins' trip to Suplex City.
A world where DeAndre Hopkins and Ben Boulware can’t suplex their opponents is not a world I want to live in— Zach Faria (@ZacharyFaria) September 10, 2019
"Here for the Monday Night Raw/MNF crossover event going on in New Orleans," ESPN's Brooke Pryor wrote.
