NBA free agent Enes Kanter Freedom has been off the big screen for a very long time. The star is a former WWE 24/7 Champion, and many really liked his performance in the WWE. He might find himself back in the ring.

Freedom was part of the Let’s Hang Live session that was ongoing during the SEC Championship game. The star shared his insights on many points, such as the ongoing Brittney Griner situation, China hosting the Winter Olympics 2022 and how important it is for celebrities to be activists.

Enes Freedom revealed that he has an offer to get into wrestling. He said that he is evaluating what he is going to do. Being 29 years old, he said that he wants to give the league the next 6-7 years of his life.

I already have an offer [to wrestle]. I’m just trying to figure out what’s going to happen with this basketball thing. I’m 29 and I want to play another six, seven years in this league. I’m just going to figure out my basketball career first and then see what’s going to happen […] I love basketball. I don’t want to quit basketball.

The free agent also displayed his sentiment towards China getting to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. He said that China getting to do something like that makes dictators such as Vladimir Putin think it’s easy to get away with bad things.

When Xi Jinping was allowed to have the Olympics despite the genocide, it’s a green light for dictators like Putin to get away with essentially anything.

Enes Freedom also talked about how there’s a difference between human rights and politics, and any criticism of these issues gets people to retort thinking that it’s a political discussion. He then added that celebrities need to stand up for these issues.
