Reds reliever (and his beard) respecting WWE's Daniel Bryan

YES! YES! YES!

Lots of baseball players who are wrestling fans, but Twitter has made this even more apparent as we see the likes of Josh Reddick tweeting up wrestlers and Adam Jones showing off his replica WWE belt to his followers.

We've also got Reds' reliever J.J. Hoover doing WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan proud, sporting both a beard and a beard-related shirt:

Hoover's beard isn't quite where Bryan's is -- Bryan has been letting his grow since 2012, and is even in the midst of a Beard Off with the aforementioned Reddick, one he's likely to win given, well, this:

Still, though, kudos to Hoover for a beard worthy of Bryan's latest apparel ... and for wearing it at a time where everyone publicly in favor of Daniel Bryan is being assaulted with triple powerbombs and dirty laundry.
