Super Bowl LIV arguably peaked before a ball was even in play thanks to The Rock’s introductions.
The Kansas City Chiefs ran out 31-20 winners over the San Fransisco 49ers, Patrick Mahomes inspiring a memorable comeback from 20-10 down.
Mahomes led two fourth-quarter touchdown drives, before his toss to Damien Williams with 2:44 left on the clock proved decisive.
It leaves the Chiefs as Super Bowl champions for the first time in 50 years.
However, before any of that had taken place NFL fans were already seriously hyped by the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s pre-game video.

The People’s Champion delivered a run-down of the players to watch in each team. Some of them only served to disappoint, Richard Sherman enduring a torrid night.
But hindsight is a wonderful thing and regardless of how accurate it may have been, The Rock’s promo isn’t going to be forgotten in a hurry.

Spine-tingling. What a voice and what a way to kick off the greatest show on earth.
Shakira found herself overshadowed before she’d even taken to the stage for her half-time show!
Johnson had spoken beforehand at his excitement of introducing the teams back in the town he calls home.
As for the game itself, it seems fitting that Mahomes should emerge triumphant after the season he’s just enjoyed.
The 24-year-old was inevitably named MVP, with many predicting this will be the first of many rings for the quarterback.
