Ever since the lights went out on SHAWNE MERRIMAN’s pro football career—the 6-foot-4, 260 pound former Pro Bowl linebacker announced his retirement in March after various foot injuries led to him being cut by the Buffalo Bills in 2012—the 29-year old has been trying to find a new pursuit. Stints as a model and guest analyst on NFL Network apparently aren’t enough. Latest word says Merriman will try his hand at becoming a WWE wrestler.

Apparently, Shawne has been training hard at the WWE Performance Center this week and received these battle scars  during his first day of sparring…


I don’t think there’s any doubt the hulking Merriman can pull off becoming a top notch wrestler. Dude certainly has the persona of one as evidenced by this photo shoot Merriman once did for Playboy…


Dude looks like Fred Flintstone on steroids. 4real, 4real.
