Most NBA free agents spend all of their time training and preparing to get signed to a new contract. All star and future hall of famer, (fight me) Dwight Howard, took a different approach.
Dwight is a close friend of WWE wrestler Titus O’Neil, so he decided to scoot over to Tennessee to watch his friend perform and see some wrestling matches. There were some tryouts going on to add people to the WWE cast, and Howard decided to throw his hat in the ring as a joke.
Dwight still wants to play basketball, he isn’t ready to hang up the sneakers just yet. That being said I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the ring after his hoops career is over.
He also cut a sweet promo channelling one of his old Halloween costumes, Sho’nuff, the villain from the movie “The Last Dragon”. I would love to see Howard in a Royal Rumble. Imagine the dude who had said some of the most sus things in the NBA facing off against Roman Reigns. Electric.
The 36 year old 8 time all star is still a free agent, but I expect him to sign a deal before the season starts.
