George Kittle loves wrestling, so of course the tight end quoted Ric Flair after signing his record-setting contract extension.
Kittle wrote a lengthy letter posted on the 49ers' website, and he ended it by channeling the Nature Boy.
"Finally, to the greatest fans in the NFL -- THANK YOU!" Kittle wrote. "Thank you for all your support in everything we do, for cheering us on no matter what and for always being FAITHFUL. I will continue to work for all of you as we make the 2020 season another success.
The stylin', profilin', limousine-ridin', jet-flyin', kiss-stealin', wheelin' n' dealin' 49ers star didn't stop there. Kittle's "WOO" was multi-platform, and he used it to sign off of a video that the 49ers posted on their social media feeds.
After the initial version of this story was published, Flair responded in kind and congratulated Kittle on his new deal.

There will be plenty more "WOO"s to come, considering Kittle's now signed with the 49ers through the end of the 2025 season.
