First it was Jarryd Hayne. Now hulking Broncos winger Daniel Vidot is the next NRL player hoping to conquer America by trialling for a World Wrestling Entertainment contract.
The Courier-Mail can reveal Vidot has been targeted by the professional wrestling organisation that unearthed superstars Hulk Hogan, The Rock and Andre the Giant.
The Broncos giant has been in negotiations with WWE representatives for the past month. He has been on the radar of US wrestling talent scouts for the past year as part of WWE’s strategy to promote more Australian talent.
Vidot also has an opportunity to sign with Queensland rugby, but will first explore a career path in the WWE before making any formal commitment to the Reds.
