During the unveiling of the new threads, fans in attendance were given a surprise in the form of an appearance from a former all-conference star who nowadays is much better known as a top superstar in WWE. 

One of the players modeling the uniforms on Friday night happened to be three-time WWE champion Roman Reigns, real name Leati Joseph Anoa'i. The revelation was met with loud cheers from the Yellow Jackets faithful as Reigns' WWE entrance theme blared through the loud speakers.
