JJ Watt has tremendous ‘Saved by the Bell’ Twitter exchange

In Watt’s tweet, he cleverly dropped #WhereIsKellyKapowski, referencing one of the characters on the show.


By all accounts, A.C. Slater – err, Mario Lopez – was not at NRG Stadium for a tryout, having apparently left his days as the quarterback of the Bayside Tigers in the past. Well, humorous you need to ask ’cause – SHE RESPONDED! He posted a photo of himself with Watt on Instagram, along with the caption: “Taught @JJWatt how to properly tackle”. The Texans won the game against the Buccaneers with a final score of 19-9.

Though Watt is single, Thiessen is married. Actress Tiffani Thiessen, who played Kapowski, posted a photo of herself holding up a copy of Men’s Health magazine featuring a shirtless Watt on the cover.

But while Watt’s quest for the flawless girl may not be as successful as he’d like it to be right now, his success on the field and in getting the attention of Hollywood stars seems to be more than enough for him.


J.J. Watt is the type of transcendent football player who has fans from each stroll of life.
