As noted, former NFL player Isaiah Stanback was one of the talents invited to the latest WWE tryouts at the Performance Center, and you check out footage of Stanback talking about the jump from the NFL to WWE in the video below.
WWE.com has posted an article revealing more details on recent the tryouts, and you can check out some of the names below:
“Isaiah Stanback, who was a member of the New York Giants during their 2012 championship season, was one of six attendees with professional football experience. Stanback played for five teams during his NFL career, as a wide receiver and a tight end.
Terron Beckham has connections to the league in another way, as the cousin of star New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Terron Beckham wowed football scouts with his Pro Day performance last year, though he did not receive a contract offer. He boasts a massive following on social media thanks to his freakish weightlifting exploits on YouTube.
Also in attendance were two relatives of former WWE Superstars. Five-foot-eleven Seini Draughn, better known to ring fans as Lei’D Tapa, is the hard-hitting niece of former WWE Superstar The Barbarian, and 24-year-old Lance Anoa’i is the son of Headshrinker Samu and the grandson of WWE Hall of Famer Afa the Wild Samoan.”
