One’s a movie titan, the other a WWE legend, and the other arguably golf’s biggest character ever. Tom Cruise, Hulk Hogan and John Daly, respectively. All were present at Raymond James Stadium to watch Tom Brady’s Bucs in their Wild Card game against the Cowboys. No doubt, forming an imposing ‘Florida Man’ trio in all of its glory.
Tom Cruise greatly admires Tom Brady
Tom Cruise and Tom Brady aren’t intimate friends, but have always shown a great mutual admiration. They first met on the red carpet of the 2018 ESPYs. They both own a Bugatti Veyron, a rare car with an estimated value of $2 to $3 million. And Tom Brady gave a rave review of Top Gun: Maverick (2022), Tom Cruise’s latest blockbuster film: “I would give Tom Cruise an A. He just put together an amazing show.”
Hulk Hogan was in the building cheering on Tom Brady
Hulk Hogan has been a fan of the Bucs ever since the team’s inception in 1976. So his support of Brady was on full blast during Monday’s Wild Card Round Cowboys at Buccaneers game. The WWE’s biggest star of all-time was shown in a suite, staring at his cell phone.
Hogan makes a regular appearance at all Tampa Bay Buccaneers preseason training camps, so his presence at the stadium was no surprise.
John Daly, in a Cowboys jacker and Santa Claus beard
Meanwhile, two-time PGA Major John Daly was shown at the club level wearing a Dallas Cowboys jacket. So, out of the three, he was clearly the one most hoping to see Tom Brady’s last game in a Bucs uniform.
The golf legend donned a Santa Claus beard, as he watched the game closely with a drink nearby. An avid smoker, Daly was respectful of Raymond James no-smoking policy.
