Scott129 Posted December 9, 2013 Share Posted December 9, 2013 One of the more unusual stories of the week! http://metro.co.uk/2013/12/08/former-port-vale-goalkeeper-stuart-tomlinson-quits-football-for-wwe-4223130/ Former Port Vale goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson is giving up a career between the sticks to take up fighting in the ring – as he jets off to join WWE. The 28-year-old former body builder, retired from professional football in July because of a knee ligament injury, but it now looks like he’s been given a ticket to try his hand at wrestling with the American franchise. Tomlinson, who played 81 times for Port Vale before leaving in 2012 to join League Two side Burton Albion until he was forced to call it a day, tweeted: ‘Looking forward to a new job (with the) WWE. Swapping two posts and a net, with four posts and ropes – USA bound!’ But surely if he can't play football with his dodgy knee, he won't be able to pick up/throw people around either? Fair play to him though. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
