Enes Kanter The numbers for having a long NBA career ahead of him, but that doesn’t mean that Boston Celtics The center hasn’t thought about life after basketball. In an interview with Shams Charania from The Athletic, Kanter revealed that he was planning to become a WWE superstar after his playing career ended.
“I’m really a WWE wrestler,” Kanter said. “I have got an offer from WWE but I have to finish my basketball career first.”
Kanter had tried WWE while he was playing at WWE The NBA. Back in September 2019 when he was together New York Knicks, Kanter won the 24/7 WWE Championship from R-Truth at a live event at Madison Square Garden, but was pinned by R-Truth moments later to lose his belt.
Kanter would certainly not be the first former professional athlete to enter a wrestling ring as soon as he began his WWE career. In fact, tight star Rob Gronkowski, who was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after retiring briefly, actually signed a contract with WWE and won the 24/7 Championship at WrestleMania 36 months ago.
In addition, NBA stars Karl Malone and Dennis Rodman briefly joined WCW in the mid-1990s when they were still playing.
Kanter has been a wrestling fan for years and even used the entrance music of The Undertaker when he was introduced to an event at the University of Kentucky.
