Former NFL Player Shawne Merriman Signs WWE Contract
A Tweet posted from Rey Mysterio teasing a WWE future for former San Diego Charger Shawne Merriman has come to fruition. On the latest edition of The John Layfield and Michael Cole Show, the two confirmed that Merriman will be “joining the WWE family” and is working down at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL.
Shawne Merriman is not a stranger to the media, and even to the pro wrestling world. He made a special appearance at the 2008 WWE One Night Stand, attacking former WWE Superstar Chavo Guerrero with a kendo stick. He was also a special guest on a WrestleMania Today panel for the WWE Network this past weekend, alongside Josh Matthews, Booker T and Shawn Michaels.
