I suppose I should have known that Redskins defensive lineman Adam Carriker wanted to be a pro wrestler one day, but it didn’t all come together until I saw this photo of him with John Cena from a recent show in D.C. on Carriker’s Twitter profile.
That eventually led me to this passage from a Carriker piece for TheHogs.Net:
A lot of you know that I am big wrestling fan. I thought I would offer an opinion about a couple things. First of all, I miss WCW. The WWE needs some competition. I miss flipping back and forth between the end of Raw and Nitro trying to catch the end of both of them at the same time; and this was before TiVo, so if you missed the end, you missed it. TNA is trying to come up in the wrestling world but they just aren’t to that level where they can push the WWE and make them better. One last thing: I really wish Goldberg, The Rock or Stone Cold would come back. Wrestling really lacks a major star right now, unless you count John Cena, who I like, but find rather cheesy. By the way, Goldberg is my favorite wrestler of all time. Who knows, maybe that will be what I do when I’m finished with football. I could definitely body slam a few people. Watch out, the Dark Horse is coming!
Hope Cena hadn’t read that particular item before this photo-op.
