A new article written by Jessica Camerato for CSNNE.com is reporting that Boston Red Sox player Josh Reddick recently purchased several WWE items for both him and his teammate, Dustin Pedroia. Below are highlights from the article, which you can read in full by clicking on the above link:

"Josh Reddick had been waiting weeks for this, a gift from a friend who works for the WWE. It was a Triple H-themed folding chair, memorabilia of Reddick's favorite wrestler, with the wrestler's face on the seat cushion.

“He’s always been a guy — I know they say it’s all fake — but he’s always someone I’ve enjoyed watching because it looks like a passion more than just a job and an entertainment,” Reddick said. “He takes it really seriously even though the situations, they say, are fake.”

The WWE became a topic of conversation in the Red Sox clubhouse this season when Reddick purchased Flair’s autographed robe on eBay for his lockermate, Dustin Pedroia, a fellow WWE fan. The flashy extra-large garb, with the nickname “Nature Boy” bedazzled on the back, has become a mainstay in their quarters above Pedroia’s locker."
