Nick Paglino

Yahoo! Sports has published a new article covering Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee eyeing a possible career in pro wrestling after his NFL career comes to an end. McAfee's former teammate Tom Pestock currently wrestles in NXT as Baran Corbin, and Pestock had the following to say regarding McAfee and Pro Wrestling:

"We talked about how much we enjoyed watching it and what we loved about it. We just told each other it was something we wanted to get to when that path ended…I'm sure he'll try to do something when he's done."

The article also talks about what WWE Executive Triple H looks for in a recruit, and Triple H had the following to say:

"I will take someone with charisma and desire over anything else. It's hard to teach someone how to be charismatic. You ever met that person who has something about them? That's the biggest factor, I think. Nobody pays to just see a wrestler. You pay to see superstars."
