We reported earlier in the week that rugby star Daniel Vidot recently garnered WWE interest but remained in rugby instead. Recently, Vidot spoke with The Courier Mail and talked about a potential future in WWE.
WWE being interested in him:
"It would be a dream come true to make it in the WWE, it would be a massive achievement, but there is a lot of responsibility and sacrifices I would have to make. It (an approach from WWE) was something I didn't expect. I got a call out of nowhere, but the trial over there went really well and they were really happy with me. My big journey has only just started."
Does WWE support his return to rugby?
"The WWE guys said most wrestlers don't start until their late 20's, so my time is on my side. I told them I am not finished with football yet and they were very understanding with that. I'll do my time with Salford and eventually make my trip to the States to become a professional wrestler."
What was involved in his try out?
"I did some rolls around the ring and got the feel of it. The actual ring and ropes are harder than you think. I got a sore back doing some drills and the blisters on my back from hitting the ropes were so bad I was bleeding for a couple of days. It's a long process, but it's nothing new to me being a professional NRL player. it's a huge challenge, but I like taking on challenges."
