Penn State held its Pro Day last week, and on hand were a number of NFL scouts, but blah, blah, blah, who cares about them. Way more importantly, a WWE scout was in the crowd on the lookout for potential wrestlers (NOT sports entertainers). So the question needs to be asked: Who on Penn State’s roster would make the best WWE wrestler?
1. Robert Windsor
We’d need to workshop Windsor’s character and look — maybe a Bray Wyatt-esque look — but at 6-foot-4, 281 pounds, his nimble feet and brute strength would make him a top prospect in the WWE.
2. Chasz Wright
This goes without saying, but a monster heel for sure. I’m thinking we grow out the beard and hair, and make him into Braun Strowman 2.0. Maybe even a potential tag team with Sterling Jenkins?
3. Jan Johnson
Back in the day, the WWE did a good job recruiting former collegiate wrestlers — Kurt Angle, Brock Lesnar, Shelton Benjamin, etc. — to join the professional wrestling world. Well, what’s better than signing a former heavyweight from the best wrestling program in the country.
4. Koa Farmer
There’s always been questions about what Farmer’s best position is — safety, h-back, linebacker, superback? Well, maybe his true position is WWE wrestler. Polynesians have a rich history in the WWE, meaning Farmer is a natural fit.
5. Trace McSorley
Trace can do whatever he puts his mind to because he’s a winner. Obviously, I’d be the Paul Heyman to Trace’s Brock Lesnar. Sorry, Vince, we’re a package deal.
