SALT LAKE CITY — The Super Bowl has been set after a great weekend of football games. Although the games were more than entertaining, it's the postgame interview of Seattle Seahawks' Richard Sherman that has everyone talking.

By now you've probably seen the video of Sherman calling out San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree in a postgame interview with Fox's sideline reporter Erin Andrews. The interview has since gone viral with everyone talking about "crazy" Sherman.

Prior to the interview Sherman was instrumental in the Seahawks' win over the 49ers after a game-winning touchdown pass from Colin Kaepernick was tipped by Sherman and intercepted by Malcolm Smith in the end zone. The interception allowed the Seahawks to run out the clock to send them to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2005.

"I'm the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree that's the results you're going to get. Don't you ever talk about me."

Andrews retorts, "Who was talking about you?"

To which Sherman said, "Crabtree. Don't you open your mouth about the best."

It was the closest thing to the NFL meets WWE. All that was needed was the spandex suit and the match was on.

Earlier in the week Crabtree was asked if Sherman was the best corner in the league. Crabtree told reporters, "Uh, no, I don't think so."

Crabtree responded on Twitter, saying:

Film don't lie... @nflnetwork@espn pull up the tape of that game and show me where this guy is the best? #fake#fake#fake — Michael Crabtree (@KingCrab15) January 20, 2014

The Sherman outburst even had other professional athletes talking about the interview on Twitter:
