A Former German Footballer Debuts on Wrestling Ring

Tim Wiese, former German international goalkeeper goal, participated in a meeting of WWE wrestling, the main American Federation Saturday in Frankfurt. The beginning of an amazing conversion.

Life footballer Tim Wiese definitely looks behind him. Two months after having given his desire to move into wrestling, after receiving a proposal from the WWE (the main American wrestling federation), the former German international goalkeeper goal (6 selections, substitute in the World Cup 2010), without a club since January, debuted on the ring Saturday night in Frankfurt. Yet to really fight (it will need to wait a bit for this particular special training), but already for the show.

At the Frankfurt meeting, former teammate Johan Micoud Werder Bremen (2005-2012), vacated by his last club Hoffenheim, where he has never imposed, first attended the trial since the stands. Then he was invited to step into the ring to be presented to the public.

From its 117 pounds, against 91 the time when it was still football (!), Wiese (33 next month) then did not take long to master the codes of discipline that combines physical effort and performance.

A few seconds after entering the ring, he climbed on a rope in the corners to bend the torso and biceps swell to the public. Before leaving, after meeting the photos, to the applause of spectators who have come to expect to see him at work to fight.
