Travis Kelce will become bigger than the Rock if he goes on to marry Taylor Swift, according to radio host Howard Stern.
Kelce’s fame has skyrocketed since he began dating Swift last summer, with the pop sensation’s first appearance at one of his NFL games back in September sparking a frenzy.
The Kansas City Chiefs tight end was already a household name as a two-time Super Bowl winner, yet his newfound status as one half of the most famous celebrity couple on the planet has propelled him to new heights.
Earlier this year Kelce’s managers revealed their client is looking to become as famous as movie star and WWE legend Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson, outlining their plan to put him on the map both on and off the field.

And according to Stern, tying the knot with Swift would both land him a movie career and ensure he blows the Rock out of the water.
‘First of all, Travis Kelce has to marry Taylor Swift,’ the American broadcaster told Stephen A. Smith on his latest SiriusXM show.
‘Why? What are you talking about? He will then get a movie career, he’ll be bigger than the Rock.’
However, Smith is not convinced Kelce needs a high-profile wedding with Swift to propel himself to greater levels of stardom, highlighting that he is already a double Super Bowl champion and one of the greatest NFL tight ends of all time.
‘First of all, let’s say this,’ the ESPN analyst replied. ‘He is a two-time Super Bowl champion. He’s on the verge of potentially being a three-time Super Bowl champion.
‘Universally recognized as one of the greatest tight ends in the history of football. Good looking dude, got style, got flair.
‘He’s got skills, he’s got a future in this business right here once he retires from football – I’m here to tell you that. Because he’s got the look, he’s got the style, he’s got the stature, he’s got the pizzazz.

Previous reports have suggested Kelce and Swift are planning to get engaged in the summer
‘He’s the total package. He’s a really, really good dude.’
Kelce was already the star of seven separate commercials before he met Swift, while also hosting late-night comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live.
As well as that, he launched a clothing line alongside his team and a podcast with his brother – Eagles-player Jason Kelce.
Previous reports have suggested that Kelce and Swift are planning to get engaged in the summer after holding off throughout the holiday season.
Nevertheless, the couple are still seeing where their high-profile romance goes after a whirlwind start to the relationship.
