Enes Kanter is investing his quarantine preparation for a career after basketball. Obviously that career is going to be as a expert wrestler with WWE.
The world around us is altering quickly and it’s requiring everybody to believe deeply about their present and theirfuture For lots of, that indicates thinking about the altering nature of their work and possibly even picturing alternative professions. For Enes Kanter, that indicates preparing for a career wrestling with the WWE.
That’s Kanter consulting with Arena’s Shams Charania and if you do not have time to enjoy the entire interview, here’s the money quote: “I’m definitely becoming a WWE wrestler, for sure. I already have offers from WWE, but I got to finish my basketball career first.”
Kanter has really been a WWE title-holder prior to, with his reign as 24/ 7 Champ lasting all of 22 seconds. At a RAW event in September of 2019, Kanter stunned R-Truth with a slam and ping, hosting the belt and flaunting a Celtics’ jersey concealed under his zip-up hoody. Truth pulled the ol’ switcheroo and right away took it back.
Whenever he makes the shift from expert post- scorer to expert mat-jockey (is that a thing?) Kanter will be signing up with a abundant tradition of NBA and NBA-adjacent characters crossing over into the ring. Karl Malone, Dennis Rodman, Shaquille O’Neal, LaVar Ball and Mark Cuban have actually all emerged or really battled at expert wrestling occasions in the past.
Nevertheless, we still have not seen a reservation of the WWE match all of us truly wish to see– LeBron James vs. Draymond Green I expect you might switch Kevin Durant in for LeBron at this moment. Primarily we simply desire to see Green in the ring, settling some of the animosities he’s built up on the court. Or, possibly Vince McMahon might take our recommendations and simply release the XNBA.
