Please, please, please let this actually happen.

Outspoken NBA big man Enes Kanter already has an offer to become a WWE wrestler and plans to do that after his NBA playing career ends, he told Shams Charania of The Athletic at the end of a wide-ranging interview.

Kanter would make an AWESOME heel in the wrestling ring. This needs to happen.

It’s also years away. Kanter is just 27 and is a quality offensive player and rebounder who has a role in the NBA; he’s going to be around the league for a while. He has a $5 million player option with the Celtics for next season, and whether or not he picks it up (one league source said he’s expected to considering the unpredictable offseason market coming up), he’s going to make around that much money for years. That’s more than he will make as a pro wrestler.

But Kanter has his fallback career.
