Badgers’ Hayes channels inner WWE wrestler for Twitter video

If this whole NBA thing doesn’t work out, Nigel Hayes may have a career in WWE ahead of him.

The charismatic Badgers forward posted a video on his Twitter account late Thursday of himself impersonating WWE personality "Stone Cold" Steve Austin — jean shorts, beer drinking and all.

Hayes mulled entering the NBA draft after this past season, his third at Wisconsin, but opted to return to Madison. The 21-year-old will lead a Badgers team this upcoming season that some have pegged as the Big Ten favorites.

Hayes in the past has made headlines for his postgame press conferences, his love for "Glee" star Lea Michele and most recently a Twitter campaign to play a nonconference game vs. Toledo, Ohio, his hometown. But never has he shown his professional wrestling acumen. Until now.

Here’s hoping this is the start of a viral #StoneColdSteveAustinChallenge.
