Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter spoke to Stadium about a few topics, including his plans for life after basketball. This is a wrestling website, so it shouldn’t surprise you that he claims to have a standing offer from WWE to join the organization after his court days are behind him. He also seems very excited to accept it.

I’m definitely becoming a WWE wrestler. I’ve actually already had offers from WWE, but hey, I gotta finish my basketball career first.

This communication between WWE and Enes possibly comes from his brief stint as the WWE 24/7 Champion back in September. He’s also been involved in other wrestling-adjacent productions and expressed interest in having Paul Heyman as a manager. As stated in the video below, Kanter got a huge reception when he appeared on WWE TV for his title win, and his size makes him just what certain higher-ups look for in a crossover star.

Will basketball be the next MMA in terms of WWE’s expanded search for superstars? Only time will tell.
