Former NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman was in New Orleans for WrestleMania XXX and all the festivities taking place, including the Hall of Fame ceremony. He could’ve been down there for another reason as well, he is set to join the WWE.
On the latest edition of The John Layfield and Michael Cole Show, the two confirmed that Merriman will be “joining the WWE family” and is working down at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL.
Merriman has been a part of WWE events in the past including an appearance at the 2008 WWE One Night Stand. He was also apart of the WWE Network’s WrestleMania Today panel. The Merriman to WWE news was sort of leaked on Saturday night when WWE superstar Rey Mysterio posted the following picture to Instagram of himself with Merriman and the hashtag “future WWE star” before the Hall of Fame ceremonies.
