In a dramatic display of team loyalty, WWE Superstar and avid Cleveland Browns fan Johnny Gargano made headlines at the recent NFL game by destroying a Jacksonville Jaguars-themed guitar. This bold move was more than a show of support for his favorite team; it subtly highlighted the rivalry between WWE and All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

The Jaguars, part of AEW CEO Tony Khan's family business empire, became the unwitting symbol of this sports entertainment clash. This incident gains additional significance considering the WWE's decision back in August to omit Jacksonville from its special line of NFL legacy replica title belts.

The exclusion seemed to throw an indirect challenge at AEW, further fueling the competitive spirit between the two wrestling giants.

The game itself was a nail-biter, with the Browns narrowly edging out the Jaguars 31-27.

This victory brings both teams to an even 8-5 record for the season. Interestingly, Tony Khan refrained from commenting on the NFL match, focusing instead on supporting Fulham Football Club, another sports entity under his family's ownership.

Gargano's presence at the game was no coincidence, as Cleveland is set to host the upcoming episode of "WWE Raw" at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. While Gargano's participation in the event remains unconfirmed, the stage is set for a showdown featuring former AEW EVP Cody Rhodes and the charismatic Shinsuke Nakamura.

The WWE-AEW connection continued to buzz on social media, with former ROH Tag Team Champion and AEW star Mark Briscoe expressing his displeasure over WWE on Fox's social media use of "Dem Boyz," a nickname closely associated with The Briscoe Brothers.

Briscoe's callout to WWE's Chief Content Officer, Paul "Triple H" Levesque, over the issue underscores the ongoing tussle for brand identity and fan loyalty between these wrestling powerhouses. This blend of sports, entertainment, and social media interactions creates a multi-layered narrative that's captivating for fans of both wrestling and football.

As these worlds collide, the excitement is palpable, both in the stadium and online, making each game and social media post a potential headline-maker.
