Browns TE Gary Barnidge delivers scoop slam at wrestling event

Gary Barnidge and DeAngelo Williams have been best buddies for years, dating back to when they were teammates with the Carolina Panthers. The fact that Barnidge has been on the Browns and Williams has been on the Steelers for several years now has not fractured that relationship.

Among their common interests is pro wrestling. While I usually see them in attendance at WWE events, they had the opportunity to take part in an in-ring segment this past week in TNA, a competitor (but really not even close to a serious one) to WWE.

In the video clip, you can see Williams get a shove in on one of the wrestlers with Barnidge later deliving a scoop slam. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski recently took part in a WWE event and received clearance to do so; I’d assume that Williams and Barnidge received the same clearance from their clubs.

Several former football players have made it big in pro wrestling — could that be something that is in the future for Barnidge?
