MLB All-Star Johnny Damon explains why he left the New York Yankees to sign with WWE
It came as a shocker for the fans around the MLB World when Damon announced his desire to pursue a career as a professional wrestler. He signed a multi-year deal with the World Wrestling Entertainment.
“Vince McMahon came around with the right deal, I was granted my release from the Yankees, and just like that, I’m going to be a pro wrestler,” he said to the Associated Press.
“The competition just wasn’t there anymore,” he added. “I remember when I ran into that left field wall at Yankee Stadium on July 4, and I thought ‘why not?’ That was the defining moment in my life that made me realize I want to pulverize people for a living instead of a ball.”
Johnny explained his desire to be a WWE Star, “I really want to wrestle, and I’m happy to have a great trainer in Doink helping me. I’m learning a lot from him,” said Damon. “Just today he taught me this crazy move called the ‘whoopee cushion.’”
