Odell Beckham Jr. Browns jersey invades WrestleMania 35 — Troy L. Smith, Cleveland.com

“The big celebrity cameos for this year’s event centered around “Saturday Night Live” cast members Colin Jost and Michael Che beefing with WWE superstar Braun Strowman.

Che and Jost both competed in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal during the WrestleMania pre-show. Jost showed up wearing a Browns Odell Beckham Jr. jersey.”

Smith goes on to explain that Jost is not a fan of the Browns, but was just trying to rile up the East Rutherford, New Jersey crowd by showing up in a jersey of a player who was one of the biggest stars in that city the past few seasons.
