Former MLB superstar and steroid-scandal cover boy Jose Canseco has signed a pro wrestling contract.
Canseco has reportedly sign a deal with the World Class Revolution promotion, which was formerly known as the Imperial Wrestling Revolution.
Jerry Bostic, the founder of the promotion, spoke about signing the former baseball star this week.
"We couldn't be happier to welcome Jose into our family that represents equality, diversity, family, and love," Bostic wrote on Facebook. "Jose is without a doubt one of the greatest athletes professional baseball has ever seen being the first ever 40 home run/40 stolen base athlete in history. He was AL MVP, 6-time All Star, 2-time World Series Champion, and hit an amazing 462 home runs in his career.
Bostic continued, "Professional wrestling and our other avenues of business have enabled us to start becoming a multimedia company which has always been our goal. We're starting to effectively combine pop culture with our wrestling product and we're seeing great results thus far and we're just getting started. I would like to personally thank both Jose and his agent Morgan for this opportunity to do business together."
