Don’t mess with Texas…or Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt. Watt raised eyebrows Monday when he Tweeted a video of himself tackling a seemingly random stage crasher at a Zac Brown Band show.

ESPN speculated that the tackle was likely staged, as the stage crasher in question appeared to be wearing an Alabama T-shirt. Wisconsin, Watt’s alma mater, will open their 2015 season with a game against Alabama at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Prank or not, we hope the poor Alabama-clad guy had an aspirin.
