Former German international goalkeeper Tim Wiese made his professional wrestling debut for WWE tonight.
The 34-year-old former Werder Bremen keeper, who retired from football in 2014, gained a significant amount of muscle mass since his retirement and decided to get into professional wrestling as a career.
Tonight was the night he put all of his training and practice into affect, and I think it’s definitely safe to say that he didn’t look out of place in the ring.
He even managed to win on his debut.
Wiese kept it his simple on his first run out in front of a paying wrestling crowd and managed to win the contest.
Tagging with Swiss star Cesaro and Irish brawler Sheamus, Wiese blasted opposing trio Bo Dallas and the Shining Stars with a series of close-lines and slams, as well as hurling them to the mat with arm-drags.
Speaking before his debut last month, he stated he was excited to make his first appearance for WWE and that he can’t wait to step into the ring.
