Rodney McLeod channled his inner Arn Anderson and performed a crazy spinebuster at the Super Bowl!
Super Bowl LII was a heck of a game between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night in Minneapolis. There was a non-stop action and plenty of scoring as both teams combined for well over 1,000 yards of total offense, which is unheard of for an NFL game.
Unfortunately for Patriots' fans, the Eagles ended up winning the game by a score of 41-33, which was amazing for Philly fans, since this is their first-ever Super Bowl title.
The Eagles outplayed the Patriots in the first half, but New England came back in the second half but were unable to put the game away. Philly was able to hold them off and essentially close out the game with a strip sack on future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady, which led to them recovering the football and allowing them to eat up more clock.
The Patriots ended up getting the ball back with under one minute to play and no timeouts, but couldn't put together a successful drive to force the game into overtime.
Despite the fact that Eagles' quarterback Nick Foles was a backup to second-year signal caller Carson Wentz, he took over late in the season when Wentz went down with a torn ACL.
Foles looked amazing in the playoffs and outplayed Brady in the Super Bowl as he was named the MVP of the game. We're sure he's in for a massive payday from a desperate NFL team that needs a quarterback.
The game also had its fair share of hits.
As you can see in the video, Eagles' defensive back Rodney McLeod used a spinebuster to take down Patriots' wide receiver Brandin Cooks early on in the second quarter after Cooks attempted to leap over him.
We wonder if McCloud or Cooks are wrestling fans and whether or now they realized that McCloud gave Cooks a spinebuster.
Nonetheless, it was a great play by McCloud because he was able to take Cooks down instead of allowing him to leap over him. It wasn't a smart move on Cooks' part because he fell to the ground very hard.
Unfortunately for Cooks, that wasn't the last big hit he took during the game. He also took a helmet-to-helmet shot from Eagles' safety Malcolm Jenkins that knocked him out of the game with a concussion.
At the end of the day, we'ew sure Arn Anderson is very proud of McCloud's takedown.
