Starting today, April 28, many football players’ dreams of being drafted into the NFL will come true. The annual event is crucial for a reason, as fans and family members wait with baited breath to see how the football players fare in the draught.
When Rusell Wilson was picked by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2012 NFL Draft, his then-wife, Ashton Meem, was overjoyed.
She had no idea, nor did anybody else, that her reply would become a viral meme. That has now reappeared and taken over Twitter for the second time in a decade. Russell received a phone call ten years ago while surrounded by friends and family. That was the turning point in his life.
It was a memorable moment in NFL history, but not quite as memorable as his wife’s reaction, which rapidly became an internet meme.Aston is seen in the viral video clutching a pet dog in one hand and a mug in the other as she screams with her lips open and looks at her husband.
As proven by today’s tweets, the internet will never forget Ashton’s reaction to Russell’s NFL Draft moment.
It all started with the old pic, first shared by NFL Meme on Twitter captioned, “In honor of the NFL Draft, may we never forget the night when Russell Wilson’s ex-wife thought she was set for life.”
As the meme is sweeping the platform, several have joked about the girlfriends and wives of the present-day players reacting similarly when their names will be announced.
While sharing mem fab tweeted, “I still die laughing everyone at this. @DangRussWilson’s ex-wife thinking she was ready to cash in.”
Another said, “All these girlfriends at the draft looking like Russell Wilson’s ex-wife,”
In 2012, the couple married, and in 2014, they announced their engagement. The reason for their divorce was never revealed.
