Every time NBA star Dwight Howard decides to formally grasp up his basketball sneakers, he could have already got his subsequent profession endeavor ready on him. The 36-year-old Howard, who’s presently a free agent, had a WWE tryout over the summer time and apparently impressed throughout his session. New WWE head man, Paul “HHH” Levesque, left an open invite, stating Howard has his quantity and that he can name and “we’ll see what occurs.”

If this Dwight Howard WWE marriage does occur, it will be the right alternative to get Howard and Shaquille O’Neal within the ring to settle their grudge. WWE might invoice it because the battle of the “Supermen.” The precise match can be absolute crap, however due to title recognition, even essentially the most informal fan would watch. In fact, they’d costume it up and add a few full-time wrestlers to every man’s nook.

This feud can be pure shenanigans, however for the proper payday, I’m positive O’Neal can be all for it. That man shills any and every part. And he’s been within the ring loads of occasions up to now. O’Neal’s had a number of face-offs with Huge Present through the years, however they’ve but to have an precise one-on-one match, and it in all probability received’t occur at this level. Though, they did work collectively one time in double choke slamming Kane.

Possibly Howard steps in as that different big and takes Huge Present’s place? We might get a brief one-on-one match between the 2 NBA stars. Shaq has had it in for Howard for over a decade since Dwight “stole” his Superman gimmick. Regardless that Shaq stole it from… SUPERMAN. Apart from a celeb feud, there can be limitations to what they’ll do with Howard within the ring.

He could possibly act as a bodyguard/enforcer and have a top star to bring him in. He’ll likely do a lot of media engagements for the company based on his status, and Howard does have personality. Indeed, Howard would get a few extra eyes on the product initially, but after the first couple of appearances or matches, then what? Howard could undoubtedly be an asset for WWE, but I’d be really interested to see how they’d implement him with Vince McMahon out of the picture. Would it be more of a celebrity angle situation, as I’ve laid out, or could they do more with Howard? That obviously depends on his ability in the ring.

Howard grew up a big fan of wrestling, so he’d have that on his side. His athletic background also helps, as the conditioning needed to be a professional wrestler is a high bar to meet. But it takes years of honing this craft just like any other to get to a level where a wrestler is even semi-believable in the ring. Howard turns 37 in December. So, if Howard decides to make that call, we’ll see just how long WWE is willing to invest in Howard’s “potential” upside.
