Former University of Utah do-everything Eric Weddle has not seen eye-to-eye with San Diego Chargers owner Dean Spanos since the summer when the team announced that they would not be bringing back the defensive back. Then include the most recent debacle where Weddle was fined $10,000 for watching his daughter perform during halftime of their Dec. 20 matchup with the Miami Dolphins.
Then the team put Weddle on injured reserve — against his will by the way — and then said he was unable to fly with the team for the season finale against the Denver Broncos by saying that the plane was too small.
Really? His management team was not buying it.
Team didn’t announce injured players couldn’t travel to Denver until after putting @weddlesbeard on IR. Said plane is to small. Hysterical

Weddle has been with the Chargers since he was drafted out of Utah since 2007 and has been a fan favorite to local fans bu staying late to sign autographs and taking in his final home game at Qualcomm Stadium lying on the 50-yard line.
Eric Weddle pays respect to group of fans after every home win. This Sun., something bigger. https://t.co/5XjLozDFeh pic.twitter.com/MaMbmH6HTo — Michael Gehlken (@UTgehlken) December 18, 2015

With the relationship very, very bad between the Chargers and Weddle, this fan took to YouTube to make a WWE 2K16 match between Weddle and Spanos. This video is just amazing and it starts with Weddle running down the tunnel in full Chargers powder blue and then he proceeds to dominate Spanos in the ring.
The video is clearly in favor of Weddle who proceeds to dominant this match, and likely something San Diego fans would very much so like to see in real life.
