ESPN- Shawne Merriman is going from the football field to the wrestling ring. The NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2005, Merriman has joined World Wrestling Enterainment, according to a report by SB Nation’s Testudo Times Blog. It’s unclear what role Merriman will have with the WWE, the report said. But said Merriman will be an announcer while training to be a wrestler. Merriman was part of the Wrestlemania pre-show on WWE Network last weekend. Merriman was limited to 18 games over his final three seasons. And he finished with 45.5 career sacks in 75 games, including 59 starts. Merriman also made headlines for his off-the-field troubles. In 2006, he was suspended by the NFL for four games after testing positive for steroids. He blamed the positive test on a tainted supplement, which he never identified. Despite being limited to playing 12 games, Merriman finished with a career-best 17 sacks that season. In 2009, Merriman was arrested just before the season after reality television star Tila Tequila accused him of battery and false imprisonment at his suburban San Diego home. No charges were filed, and Merriman and Tequila settled dueling lawsuits.

If there were ever a football player that was made to transition to the WWE it’s Merriman (Jared Allen is the obvious number 2). He is big on showmanship, loves steroids, and isn’t opposed to smacking a bitch around. Some guys leave the NFL after injuries and/or standard productivity decline and join a real estate firm or car dealership but not Lights Out, he knows where the money is and where he can get as insanely juiced as possible without anyone batting an eye. Can’t wait to see a Lights Out/Brock Lesnar/Batista three way match for the King of the Syringe and a chance at the title!

PS And Brandon Spikes, just remember this moment because Merriman thought going to Buffalo would reignite his career too after he left a successful team. The Spike would be a sweet nickname considering your last name and that huge dick you have (I’ve seen his porno, calm down people)
