NBA Star Enes Kanter Claims He's "Serious" About Starting WWE Career


NBA star Enes Kanter recently spoke with the folks from "Hoops Rumors" for an interview about his interest in starting a pro wrestling career when his basketball career comes to an end. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On how serious he is about starting a pro wrestling career when his NBA career comes to an end: “I’m very serious about [a pro wrestling career]. I feel like it’s my world. You just got to go out there, talk trash, troll people. Lifting, I love lifting. It’s just fun, man. I don’t want to stop my sports career when I’m done with basketball. A lot of people go into broadcasting, coaching, but I want to continue opening the door in sports. That’s why I’m very serious about it.

On claiming he is in contact to take the steps necessary to join WWE: "I’m already in contact with Paul Heyman and some of the wrestlers. I’m actually trying to meet with Vince McMahon."

On liking wrestling before basketball: "I’ll just say it was my hobby in college because I didn’t get to play [basketball] in college. And so I said I’ll just do it after my basketball career. I’m very serious about it."
