Steelers QB Mason Rudolph & Canadian Tennis Star Genie Bouchard Heats Up

Videos by OutKick

The Mason Rudolph-Genie Bouchard relationship continues to heat up as the Canadian tennis star keeps dropping hints that something is cooking in Pittsburgh, including a photo from Sunday’s Steelers game in Nashville where Mason had a backup assignment for Ben Roethlisberger.

As of May 1, Rudolph was reportedly dating Bachelor star Hannah Ann Sluss. By October 6, Canada’s beloved Bouchard was posting dinner photos from Pittsburgh. Rudolph, who rose to fame after being drilled over the head with a helmet belonging to Myles Garrett, has been dropping the obligatory likes on Genie’s Instagram posts as this relationship hits overdrive seven weeks into the NFL season.

It’s making me think that getting drilled over the head and the press that came from that just might’ve helped Rudolph in the relationship department. It’s very possible these ladies saw Mason during press coverage of the incident and developed a soft spot for the backup quarterback with great hair. The cute bad boy. The post-grad battling the big bad Browns villain. It’s as if these ladies saw Mason minus the facemask on SportsCenter and told their reps to get in touch with Mason’s rep.

“I feel like quarantine would be a lot more fun with a boyfriend,” Bouchard tweeted back in March. It appears Rudolph has filled the void.

Bouchard’s tennis career has featured a finals at Wimbledon and the semis at the Australian and French Opens, but the 26-year-old’s world ranking currently sits at 791.
