February 3 is Super Bowl Sunday, where the Los Angeles Rams will take on the New England Patriots to determine who is the best in the NFL.
Regardless of the outcome, plenty of people watching the game are not football fans, and they’re more interested in things like commercials and what’s happening during halftime. While you could watch Maroon 5’s halftime show, WWE would rather have you tune in to its show, Halftime Heat.
In a video where Maroon 5 gets massive boos, WWE proclaims it’s bringing back its halftime show, which only happened once before in 1999. It’s called Halftime Heat, and WWE knows how to get the attention of its fanbase, by bashing a pop-rock act that wrestling fans probably would have skipped watching anyway, and you can see the promotional video for it below.
Fans of the attitude era will recall the time Mankind defeated the Rock to win the WWE title in an empty arena during the Super Bowl halftime show. This won’t have the stakes of that, but it’ll be some good pro-graps action for those who aren’t feeling Maroon 5.
In addition to the star-studded six-man tag, WWE will also be airing a marathon of some of NXT’s most epic matches of all time starting at 2 pm ET on Super Bowl Sunday. Just like “Halftime Heat,” you can catch all of the action on WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
