J.J. Watt after T.J. is drafted: Christmas 'gonna be fun'

Last night the youngest Watt brother, T.J., joined his siblings -- J.J. and Derek -- in the NFL. The Wisconsin linebacker was selected pick No. 30 by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Big bro, J.J., immediately noticed that the holidays would be a little different for the Watts this year.

The Steelers play the Texans at NRG Stadium on Christmas Day 2017. That's right, we'll be blessed with the Watt brother showdown we've all been waiting for.

Let's look at the tale of the tape:

J.J. Watt

Height: 6-foot-5

Weight: 295 pounds

40-Yard Dash: 4.84 seconds

T.J. Watt

Height: 6-5

Weight: 236 pounds

40-Yard Dash: 4.69 seconds

T.J. said the experience will be a unique one. "I played with him in the backyard a bunch, I've seen him play a bunch, we've never been on the same field in full uniforms competitively before," T.J. told ESPN. "I think that will be really cool and a weird day for me."

However, both T.J. and J.J. are defenders, so the duo most likely won't literally face off on the gridiron. That's OK, this just brings us one step closer to that WattMania pay-per-view wrestling special we've all been clamoring for. Oh, that's only me?
