IPL 2022, Royal Challenger Bangalore vs Gujarat Titans, Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
On Thursday, During the match between RCB and GT, Kohli’s love for WWE came before everyone as he recreated WWE legend The Undertaker’s iconic ‘throat-slash’ sign at GT opener Shubman Gill just when he and his partner Wriddhiman Saha came to the crease for their innings.
Kohli made these kinds of WWE signs throughout his career many times. Recently in the Test series between India and South Africa and also while playing for The Royal Challengers Bangalore. During the India-South Africa Test series, Kohli was caught by the stump microphone, and he was saying ‘Finally, The Rock has come back’ out of joy watching Jasprit Bumrah return to the field. This phrase was a very famous phrase which was immortalised by former WWE superstar The Rock, or Dwayne Johnson.
By now it must be pretty evident that Virat Kohli is a huge WWE fan, more precisely of the Attitude Era, which ruled the world of professional wrestling in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
When GT opener Shubman Gill just when he and his partner Wriddhiman Saha walked out to bat. The camera very quickly spotted Kohli giving Gill a glimpse of The Undertaker sign.
