What Does WWE Have Planned for Shawne Merriman?, Renewed Interest In Former NFL Players

As noted, has signed former star Shawne Merriman to a deal. The idea is to bring him up similar to how brought up Steve “Mongo” McMichael.

They’re looking at training Merriman as an announcer, put him on while he’s also training to be a wrestler, and then transition into being a wrestler when he’s good enough.

There is a renewed interest within WWE when it comes to signing NFL players who are still young but their football careers are over.
