- It appears that The Elite's influence has reached far outside the world of pro wrestling. NFL Network's Adam Rank was going through his picks of the week in the below video last night when he brought up a member of the San Fransisco 49ers. Tight end George Kittle is a huge wrestling fan, and Rank used that towards his advantage.
Rank referenced all of the major Elite members and even brought up All In. At the end of the video, he even stated that there would be no WWE references from him. A few moments later, The Elite responded.
