Dwight Howard played for the Sixers for just 81 games, including the playoffs, but those 81 games were packed with some of his most priceless memories. He was recently present at WWE tryouts held in Nashville for sports athletes wanting to join the promotion. Howard is still in Nashville and seems to be one of the centers of attraction.
The NBA player is truly committed to become a WWE superstar, and he already possesses formidable promo skills. He was back for another round today.
The tryouts are a part of a new strategy by the wrestling to develop collegiate and professional athletes into future stars of the sport worldwide. The Los Angeles Lakers player surprised Nashville with a surprise visit and even gave a WWE-style promo. He came with props and has a presence, voice, and prowl that would make a wrestler proud.
Over a dozen new wrestlers were reportedly signed by WWE during WrestleMania week. As the year goes on, more additions are anticipated. Fans may eventually witness Dwight Howard sparring with Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, but only time will tell.
