When San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle took to the podium for his media availability session after Monday Night Football, he did so wearing the mask of Penta El Zero M, who is currently a third of the AEW World Trios Champions Death Triangle. Although this shouldn’t have come as too much of a surprise to the media in attendance, given that Kittle is a well-known fan of professional wrestling and Penta is a well-known fan of the 49ers, so much so that he presented the Pro Bowl award to the tight end with a custom helm-lucha -Libre mask before the game, it’s hard to imagine Kittle would have worn his custom mask to the session if the team had been blown out of the water by their division rivals.

Luckily, the Niners beat the Arizona Cardinals to the point where both teams turned to their backup quarterbacks, and Kittle led the game with one of his best stat lines of the season, catching four of the six passes he threw for 84 yards and two touchdowns. After catching just one pass against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10, Kittle finished the game with the third most goals and third most catches on the team, behind only Deebo Samuel and Christian McCaffrey, and actually surpassed all of his teammates in receiving yards at 84 Even as his individual goals wax and wane depending on how opposing defensemen play him, it’s clear that any fears that Kittle could plummet down the 49ers’ offensive hierarchy after his Week 10 performance were grossly overblown.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Kittle was asked about his relationship with Penta El Zero M, or Pentagon Jr. as he’s known to Lucha Libre AAA fans, and the All-Pro tight end lifted the curtain on their longtime Friendship .

“I met Penta in 2018 WrestleMania in New Orleans,” Kittle said. “We met there several times, I use his celebration ‘Cero Miedo’, I just think he has another boast and he has this slightly disrespectful boast to him that I really, really take to heart. We meet up every once in a while, every wrestling show I see him at, he was at the game tonight and got me a new mask, he’s sending me all my masks, so kudos to him. And we always keep in touch, which is fun because he’s a superstar, so he’s fun to be friends with.”

Speaking to Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso just before the Niners’ final Super Bowl appearance in 2020, Penta shared a similar affinity for Kittle.

“It’s an honor for an athlete like George to do that during a game,” said Pentagon, who does not reveal his name and age in interviews. “I have great respect for him as an athlete and even more as a person since we became friends.”

After taking the field in front of a crowd that was 82 percent 49ers fans, loud living seatsKittle was asked how it feels to play in Mexico City and whether or not the experience lived up to his expectations.

“It definitely delivered,” Kittle told reporters. “I’m saying this, I saw the game in Germany and those fans were just so happy football was there and coming here I know it was mostly Niners fans too so I knew the fans would show . The reception we got at the hotel last night was amazing, the fans here tonight were amazing, it just had a different energy and you could tell how much it meant to each and every fan that was there. And then the light shots in the fourth quarter were probably the coolest moment of my career.”

Kyle Shanahan also commented on how cool it is to play in front of an audience in Mexico.

“Man, I love San Francisco, but when we can’t be there I love being here. This place is awesome. This was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever been a part of.
