The Great White Way met the squared circle on Sunday night when “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda made a surprise appearance at WWE SummerSlam.

The acclaimed composer/playwright/actor and overall badass was spotted ringside at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York, for the WWE flagship event.

Having won a Pulitzer, three Tony Awards, two Grammys, an Emmy and been nominated for an Oscar, Miranda easily slipped into the role of “excited WWE fan,” as he cheered and jeered along with the sell-out crowd.

One of the biggest moments of the night featured Braun Strowman power-slamming “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar through two announce tables wasn’t enough to satisfy Sunday’s “SummerSlam” main event — the aptly monikered “Monster Among Men” dumped the third ringside desk onto the WWE Universal Champion’s already bruised body.

The “Hamilton” creator — who recently launched his hit musical in Los Angeles — also got to witness action from Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, A.J. Styles, Kevin Owens, Natalya, Naomi, Sasha Banks, Deam Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

WWE continues to take over Brooklyn tonight with “Monday Night Raw” and Tuesday with “SmackDown.”
