Chiefs' Trey Smith joins 'Monday Night Raw' to honor Kansas City mass shooting first responders

Trey Smith and Joey Borgonzi shared a memory on Monday.

Smith, the Kansas City Chiefs lineman who starred at Tennessee and the University School of Jackson, and Borgonzi were in the ring together on WWE's "Monday Night Raw" at Kansas City's T-Mobile Center. Borgonzi, wearing Smith's No. 65 Kansas City Chiefs jersey, got the show started.

"Kansas City, welcome to 'Monday Night Raw,'" Borgonzi said into the microphone. He was lifted onto the shoulders of Smith and his Chiefs teammate, Creed Humphrey.

Smith and Borgonzi first crossed paths during the mass shooting at the Chiefs' Super Bowl parade celebration. Smith comforted Borgonzi and gave the youngster a Chiefs-themed championship belt. Borgonzi wore the belt into the ring.

First responders in Kansas City were also celebrated in the ring before the show.

Later in the night, Smith and Humphrey were sitting ringside with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. During one of the matches, wrestler Braun Strowman walked over to Mahomes and theatrically talked trash to the three-time Super Bowl winning quarterback. Humphrey and Smith stood up, with title belts of their own, to defend their quarterback.

"QB1 is off limits," Smith wrote on X/Twitter.

Smith and the Chiefs won Super Bowl 58 in February, becoming the first team since the New England Patriots in 2004-05 to repeat as Super Bowl champions. Smith is the first Jackson area native to win two Super Bowl championships.
