Football's Strongest Player Adebayo Akinfenwa In Talks To Join WWE

Adebayo Akinfenwa was once told he was too big to play football.

Despite the doubters he would go on to defy the odds, using his unbelievable power to forge a respected career at the likes of AFC Wimbledon, Gillingham and Swansea.

But now his days in football are numbered, what will Akinfenwa do after retirement?

The striker has gradually built a reputation as one of the strongest players in world football thanks to his insane stats on FIFA down the years.

And a picture that emerged after Wycombe came back from behind to win at relegated Chesterfield last year puts Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson to shame.

Speaking of The Rock, it turns out Akinfenwa himself has spoken to The People's Champion of late about a potential career in the WWE and it sounds serious.

The 36-year-old revealed to The Football Social that he has already had conversations about a potential future in wrestling and when he got the change to meet Dwayne Johnson, they hit it off.

"We have had conversations. I'm into WWE because my kids are." he said.

"I got the chance to meet The Rock and we had a little conversation. So watch this space, who knows."

We definitely want to see this happen in the near future.

In other news, the Wycombe Wanderers forward and all-round powerhouse received a very special gift from EA Sports earlier this year.

To celebrate reaching one million followers on Instagram, 'The Beast' was handed the first ever 100-rated card on FIFA and my god, just look at those stats.

Akinfenwa, who has consistently been the strongest player on the game until last week, has 100 everything.

Do what you need to do, Vince.
