NFL Legend Has Hilarious Response to Social Media's Reaction to His New Hairstyle

J.J. Watt, the former NFL star, showcased a new hairstyle during his Super Bowl LVIII coverage on CBS. His look caused quite a stir among NFL fans, drawing comparisons to Pepper Brooks from "Dodgeball" and a high school prom attendee.

We've all been there. You step out of the barber shop sporting a new look, wondering what everyone will think of it or if anyone will even notice it.

Watt took to social media to acknowledge the buzz. "You ever switch up your hair and wonder if anyone will notice? They notice," he posted on X.

This Super Bowl marked Watt's debut as a broadcaster, following his retirement from the NFL in 2022. He had an illustrious career with the Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals, making him a likely candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Throughout his career, Watt was a dominant force on the field, earning three Defensive Player of the Year awards, and accumulating 114.5 sacks and 586 tackles.

Post-retirement, Watt's brother, T.J., attempted to persuade him to return to football. "I was trying to win as much as possible. I knew that was going to be a big factor," T.J. said. Despite the effort, J.J. remained retired, influenced in part by the physical toll the game took on his brother.
