The Challenge’s Wes Bergmann Is ‘Good’ After Attending 2024 Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Parade

Wes Bergmann let everyone know he was safe following the shooting at the Super Bowl parade in Kansas City.

“All is good,” the Challenge alum, 40, wrote via X on Wednesday, February 14, after attending the event. “We’re in a giant city and we’re still the safest Super Bowl city in history, statistically.”

Bergmann, who has been a longtime Chiefs fan, shared that he and fellow Challenge star Nehemiah Clark were at the celebration. The duo were in downtown Kansas City to honor the Chiefs’ recent Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

“Nehemiah and I were right there,” he penned. “It’s all good. We’re both okay.”

Nearly one million people took to the streets to greet the recent Super Bowl champions. Patrick Mahomes and wife Brittany Mahomes, Travis Kelce, coach Andy Reid and more walked and rode on floats as they made their way to the rally. Several players and staff members spoke to the crowd about the Chiefs football season.

“Kansas City let me hear you one time. Man, what a year. It’s a battle through the adversity to continue to go. To go for that championship,” Patrick, 28, said during his speech. “They all doubted us, I don’t wanna hear any different. But you know who came through in the end that’s the Kansas City Chiefs. I just want to thank everybody here because Chiefs Kingdom you’re the reason we do what we do.”

“Any chance anyone can help me get in touch with these kids or families? First off I want to make sure they’re doing ok,” he wrote via X at the time. “But would love to help them out any way I can and get them some stuff from the team to help with the recovery.”

Following the tragedy, several football players spoke out about the incident.
