Vikings Territory reports that WWE has shown interest in former Minnesota Vikings tackle Babatunde Aiyegbusi. The Polish NFL player is 6’9″ and WWE has been interested since before he was released from the team. Aiyegbusi and his agent Adam Bair met with WWE Vice President of Talent Acquisition Canyon Ceman after an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Bair said: “They loved his size and athletic ability. They were also very impressed with his character. Babs has a very witty personality when he relaxes, and [he’s] funny. On top of that, he looks mean because of his size. They like the fact that he could play either role—the villain or the good guy.”
“Babs” added: “I think my personality and work ethic will help me to become [the] next WWE Superstar. I always loved to watch wrestling; now I will have the opportunity to enjoy being [in] the ring.”
