As seen in his stats, Shawne Merriman certainly have the size, the look, and the athletism to make an impact in pro wrestling.
Just like many other Football crossover did before him: Goldberg, The Rock, Ron Simmons, Steve “Mongo” McMichael, Kevin Green, Brian Pillman, Big Van Vader, Lex Luger, Brock Lesnar, Reggie White, Wadoo McDaniel, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and the not so successful George Wells just to name a few.
