During the match, Dominik grabbed a chair to use against his father, Rey. Two men in Eagles-themed masks took the chair away from Dominik and threw him back into the ring.

In the ring after the match, Kelce and Johnson removed their masks to reveal their identities.

Fans had speculated that the retired Pro Bowl center would make an appearance given this year’s WWE location in Philadelphia.
