Taylor Heinicke celebrates the St. Louis Battlehawks' XFL season-opening win.

The St. Louis Battlehawks won their XFL opener Sunday night, and the postgame locker room celebration was popular on social media.

In the video, former Collins Hill star and NFL quarterback Taylor Heinicke wildly chugs two beers moments after fellow quarterback Nick Fitzgerald shotgunned beer from a can in the Bud Light Seltzer Lounge.

This weekend was the first of the new XFL, the pro football league backed by WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon and his Alpha Entertainment, LLC.

Heinicke, 26, was on NFL rosters with the Vikings, Texans and Panthers from 2015-18, playing in seven games with one start as a quarterback. Nelson, his St. Louis teammate, has played in 24 games — the 29-year-old defensive back had stints with the Browns, Cardinals, Texans and Jets.
