J.J. Watt Gets Two ‘Saved By The Bell’ Encounters In One Week

Who wouldn't be so excited to get a shoutout from the one and only Kelly Kapowski?

Houston Texas defensive end J.J. Watt let everyone know on Sunday that he loves the '90s classic sitcom "Saved by the Bell." He's even doing his part to get a few cast members to reconnect on social media.

After the Texans' 19-9 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Watt posted a picture he took with Mario Lopez, who famously played A.C. Slater on the hit show. Watt's defensive teammate, linebacker Kailee Wong, is Lopez's brother-in-law

In Watt's tweet, he cleverly dropped , referencing one of the characters on the show. He couldn't know at the time, but it turned out to be a forward-thinking hashtag from Watt.

Watt's hashtag question was answered shortly after his tweet. Actress Tiffani Thiessen, who played Kelly Kapowski on the show, saw Watt's plea for answers and responded in an Instagram post.

Watt was understandably stoked to get the shoutout from Thiessen.

Dare we say that Watt was "SO EXCITED!" to get the shout out from Thiessen?
