Former NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman joins WWE
Former Chargers and Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman has found himself a new home, in a new sport.
The former NFL all-pro confirmed to The John Layfield and Michael Cole Show that he will be joining the WWE Family, according to WrestleZone.
The move was unofficially leaked by WWE star Rey Mysterio in an Instagram post with Merriman dubbing him a future WWE Superstar.
There has been no confirmation on just what Merriman will be doing with the WWE, whether he joins the company as an analyst or wrestler has yet to be made public. He is however training at the WWE Performance center in Orlando.
Merriman appeared on WWE’s One Night Stand in 2008, attacking former star Chavo Guerrero with a stick. He also joined the Wrestlemania crew this last weekend when the Undertaker’s winning streak ended.
Should he join as a wrestler, ‘Light’s Out’ is back in business.
