YES! Bryan gets a big kick out of soccer star's celebration
The “YES!” chant of two-time WWE Champion Daniel Bryan continues to spread throughout the WWE Universe around the world, including the action-packed arena of championship soccer. Kelechi Iheanacho, who powered Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets to a 6-1 victory over Mexico during the opening Group stage of the FIFA U-17 (Under-17) World Cup in Al Ain City, celebrated each of his incredible four goals with explosive affirmation of his self-acknowledged favorite WWE Superstar.
Iheanacho’s four-goal celebration proved infectious, with each successful strike prompting not only teammates to join in the chant around the field’s corner flags, but the raucous throng of fans inside Khalifa Bin Zayed Stadium as well.
The youngster’s incredible tournament day did not go unnoticed by Bryan, who was moved by Iheanacho’s emulation of the Superstar.
“I think it’s incredible that he’s doing the 'YES!' chant,” said Bryan, who also congratulated Iheanacho on his four-goal feat. “It’s incredible that such an amazing athlete from Nigeria is now doing something that I do on TV. It’s great.”
