Bronson Rechsteiner, the son of former WCW/WWE World Tag Team Champion Rick Steiner, appears to be putting his football aspirations behind him in favor of a career in the pro wrestling business.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Bronson recently had a tryout with WWE, but there’s no word yet on how the tryout went.
The former Kennesaw State fullback led his team with 909 rushing yards last season with an average of 8 yards per carry before making the jump to the NFL.
He is also the nephew of former WCW World Champion Scott Steiner. The 23-year-old went undrafted and later waived by the Baltimore Ravens this past August.
With his family being in the pro wrestling business, Rechsteiner has expressed interest in a pro wrestling career but previously stated that he wanted to pursue wrestling after being done with football.
Bronson made his independent wrestling debut back in August by wrestling Jamie Hall at the AWF/WOW WrestleJam 8 event in Ringgold, Georgia. He went over in the contest with The Steiner Recliner.
On a related note, the report noted Lacey Ryan was also at a WWE tryout and described as the standout talent from it.
