For anyone wondering if James Laurinaitis (son of Road Warrior Animal and nephew of John Laurinaitis) will end up in WWE after announcing his retirement from the NFL, well, don't hold your breath on that.

Animal told Hannibal TV that his son's body took a beating in the NFL and he has saved his money so he doesn't need to do pro wrestling. He said that James just had a baby and he's living in Nashville, TN. He added, "I think he's gonna go into ESPN U and do the announcing deal. I think he's gonna coach someday. He's either gonna do announcing or coaching."

I know that there had been talk about WWE going after him and they did go to him a few years ago to see if he was interested. A few years ago he did talk about possibly jumping into pro wrestling after his NFL career but that does not seem to be in the cards for him now, especially with the beating his body took. I don't think he'd want to go on that brutal full-time WWE schedule.
