NBA star Dwight Howard may have made a shock appearance at the WWE tryouts over SummerSlam week but he says it’s no joke!
Speaking in the media scrum after the promo, Dwight Howard revealed his genuine intentions attending the WWE SummerSlam tryout, saying:
I think it is something in my future. I love the WWE, I love wrestling, I love being part of something that is going to build up our kids, their character and stuff like that. WWE is perfect. I’m grateful and thankful for this opportunity to be here and witness this whole thing, the tryouts and everything. Hopefully, one day in the future, I’ll actually be in the ring wrestling and holding up a belt. That would be amazing. I’ve just been watching this my whole life and I thought, If I had an opportunity to do this, I was going to do it with my whole heart and try to be the best that I can. I thought it ended up pretty good. Hopefully, everyone enjoyed it and I’m going to continue to do my best to get better.”
As far what the immediate future holds, Dwight Howard remains open to the possibilities ahead of him in either sport, saying:
“I would love to play in the NBA. That’s where I’ve been my whole entire life, I love basketball, that’s my passion, I still have years left in me. I would definitely love to play and end my career on a high note, a great note, and then transition to the best business in the world, the WWE
“I can’t wait to see where this goes. I’m looking forward to meeting all the superstars. I’ve met the ones coming up to be the next superstars. I want to meet all the legends and one day become a WWE legend myself. I’m looking forward to it.”
Despite a storied career in the NBA, Howard is currently without a team as a free agent.
No word yet on whether or not he will be making a WWE debut anytime soon however with Triple H at the helm of creative, the future seems more exciting than ever.
