"It was my debut and my retirement all at the same time."
Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams made his pro wrestling debut at Global Force Wrestling "Slammiversary" but he's not ready to quick his day job just yet.
Williams, who is currently a free agent, teamed with "Moose" in a tag team match against Chris Adonis and Eli Drake, and picked up the victory by pinning Adonis after hitting a frog splash onto a table.
Here's what ESPN's Terrence Williams had to say about DeAngelo's in-ring debut,
"The only flaw in Williams' performance came when attempting that move and he slightly overshot the splash and the table did not break. Once the match was over, Moose pulled Eli Drake back in the ring and power-bombed him through the table. Williams showed an impressive repertoire of moves in what I would call the best performance we've ever seen from an athlete or celebrity participating in a pro wrestling match."
Despite the successful debut, Williams says last night's match was also his last.
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin, Williams told ESPN's Adam Schefter during a podcast interview,
"It was my debut and my retirement all at the same time," he told Schefter, explaining that he participated in the event in honor of his late uncle.
The 34-year old running back now says he's waiting on a phone call so he can resume his NFL career.
