Wisconsin native John Shuster will be Team USA's flag bearer for the 2022 Olympics in Beijing.

Mr. T, professional wrestler and actor best known for his role as a boxer in the 1982 film Rocky III, is an Olympic curling superfan.

Mr. T gave a shout out to the Superior native in a tweet on Friday for being chosen as the flag bearer.

"Congratulations to My Man Big @Shoostie2010 on being Chosen to be a Flag Bearer for @TeamUSA!" he tweeted. "What a Honor, because Many Are Called but Few are Chosen. I'm So Happy for You!"

Shuster is yet to respond to the tweet, however, on Thursday, he gave Mr. T a shout-out of his own.
