Herschel Walker Interested In WWE, Most-Viewed Segment Of RAW
— NFL legend and current Strikeforce MMA fighter Herschel Walker was backstage at Monday’s WWE RAW and took part in an interview for the WWE website. Regarding the possibility that we could one day see him in a WWE ring competing, Walker says it very well could happen.
“I’ve watched these guys for a long time and I respect them a great deal,” Walker said. “If Vince McMahon wants me in there, then maybe I could do it.”
Walker says being a pro wrestler is a lifelong dream of his and he named The Rock as one of his favorite WWE performers of all time.
“I watched wrestling before I even knew what football was,” he said. “In fact, I always wanted to be a wrestler,” Walker said. “That’s the way I got to be around my father a lot on Saturdays: My younger brother and I sitting at his feet watching Rocky Johnson and all of those guys.”
— Jim Ross wrote the following on his Twitter: “Raw’s highest rated tv seg was @steveaustinBSR/Cole/JBL w/ 4.4M households tuned in which was a 4.4 rtg. SCSA still kicks ass. Stole show.”
— SmackDown star Alberto Del Rio revealed in a MyFox Houston interview this week that his current WWE contract is for three years.
