WWE stars who played professional football

Most people aren’t aware, but many of today’s WWE stars once played professional football. There’s a long list of players who couldn’t make it into the NFL, but here’s a few surprise WWE stars who played professional football.

Bill Goldberg: This WWE star attended the University of Georgia where he played defensive tackle. Goldberg was drafted in the 11th round in the 1990 NFL Draft by the LA Rams and had a stint with the Atlanta Falcons from the 1992 season until 1994.…
