WWE is full of world-class athletes that have transitioned from other sports, and there are a number of stars on the main roster who previously played in the NFL, from Mojo Rawley to Baron Corbin. WWE announced Tuesday that another former NFL player is headed to the Performance Center in Orlando.

Demitrius Bronson went undrafted out of Eastern Washington in 2014 but made the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks and appeared in preseason games but failed to make the final roster. Prior to the 2015 season, Bronson signed with the Dolphins but was cut in September.

Other members of the new class of nine wrestlers include indie stars Roderick Strong, Tommy End and “Big Damo” Damian Mackle.

Back in August, WWE signed 6-foot-7 former NFL lineman Brennan Williams, who played for the Texans. Williams made his NXT debut last week.
