We’re only 10 days away from the 2014 NFL Draft, which means kick-off is getting closer and closer. But before the regular season begins, teams will come together for mini-camp and begin off-season workouts.
A lot of players in the league get head starts and do some workouts of their own. Take St. Louis Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis for example. According to NoDQ.com, Laurinaitis and WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil were working out with some other players on the St. Louis Rams roster today at the Rams training center.
Laurinaitis, if you didn’t know, is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Road Warrior Animal. If you’re unfamiliar with professional wrestling, The Road Warriors happen to be one of the greatest tag teams of all-time. Laurinaitis also has an Uncle who was a professional wrestler and is still working with the WWE.
That man is Johnny Ace aka John Laurinaitis. He wasn’t as successful as his brother/James’ Father Joe aka Animal.
Laurinaitis finished the 2013 season with 116 combined tackles, three and a half sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries. The WWE Superstar who was working out with some of his teammates is a former member of the WWE tag team, The PrimeTime Players.
Titus attended the University of Florida from 1997 to 2000 before playing for the Utah Blaze, Tampa Bay Storm, Las Vegas Gladiators and the Carolina Cobras in the Arena Football League.
Shortly after his playing career was ended, he signed a developmental deal with the WWE in 2009 and has been with them ever since.
