In some interesting TNA Wrestling rumors, two retired professional athletes have spoken out about wanting to join up with the company. According to Rajah on Aug. 27, both Riddick Bowe and Jose Canseco have reached out on Twitter about coming to the company.
When Riddick Bowe said he wanted to become a professional wrestler, the first thought was that he might make a move to the WWE, but on second thought, the WWE usually only uses people like this in special appearance roles. The better fit might be TNA Wrestling.
Recently, TNA brought in King Mo, Rampage Jackson and Tito Ortiz, all former MMA stars. While King Mo has done almost nothing for the company, Rampage has already wrestled his first match in the company’s biggest storyline as part of the Main Event Mafia. Tito Ortiz became a villain on the side of Aces & Eights.
Now, Bowe has sent out a Twitter message to Robbie E, the Jersey Shore themed wrestler, and offered to be his tag team partner. Tommy Dreamer has already offered to train Riddick Bowe.
After that, disgraced former MLB star Jose Canseco chimed in and said if they contacted TNA Wrestling for him, he would offer to be a bodyguard.
The TNA Wrestling rumors for Riddick Bowe could become a reality, but the Jose Canseco suggestion is nothing more than a pipe dream.
