According to NESN.com, WWE is attempting to form a relationship with the NFL which would funnel NFL players into the WWE developmental system once their careers in football are over. Jim Ross is scheduled to meet with the NFL Players Association, and the following is an excerpt from the article:
“Everybody doesn’t make the 53-man roster,” Ross told Jim Miller and Alex Marvez on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “Some guys are going to be looking for work, and we’ve got some job openings. Maybe we can put the synergies of those two entities together and create something wonderful some day.” Plenty of former football players have found careers in wrestling in the past. Some of them include Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ernie Ladd, Bronco Nagurski and Bill Goldberg.
