NBA star Enes Kanter continues to express his interest in pro wrestling. He has trained on his own in the past and recently took it to the next level.
He won the championship for a brief moment when he pinned R-Truth only to drop the title back to the star moments later.
Kanter stated that he’s still thinking about becoming a WWE wrestler after his basketball career is over.
“It was just so fun. They asked me if I wanted to be a villain or a hero, and I’m like, “A villain!” They said, “You’re going to be the most hated man in New York that night.” I was like, “I’m ready for this, let’s do it.” It is more fun to play the villain. You get all the boos, you get in people’s faces and talk trash to them. I’m even thinking of becoming a WWE wrestler after basketball.”
Kanter added, “I know a lot of great people from WWE, and I am sure they help with that once you get there. But I have to finish my basketball career first.”
