Ben Roethlisberger Was At The Royal Rumble And Loving It, He Thinks (GIF/PHOTO)

While some of his NFL peers were playing in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was taking in another manufactured sporting event: WWE's Royal Rumble.

Before the action got underway at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Roethlisberger was photographed backstage with professional wrestling legends Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels.

Once Roethlisberger found his seat, the camera found him. After a moment of hesitation, he seemed to be having just as much fun as everyone else in the crowd.
