The country is till reeling over the news of the former Washington Redskins announcing they will be going as the “Washington Football Team,” which will serve as a placeholder until they decide on a permanent name at a later date.
Former players as well as fans have weighed in on it and now a former NFL player turned WWE superstar also added his voice into the mix.
Movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made a suggestion for the team’s new name and he thinks the team should be called the “Washington Ballers.”
“Even though this name is clearly temporary, I appreciate the organization moving at an accelerated pace towards some progress prior to this @NFL season.
For the love of the game – I vote, ‘WASHINGTON BALLERS.’ You’re welcoooome!” he said on Twitter.
Johnson is the star of HBO’s series “Ballers” which pits him as a former NFL player turned agent.
Some of of the most popular name changes on social media have been the Warriors, Redhawks, Redtails, and Senators.
