Chuck Carroll had Washington Redskins reserve offensive lineman Adam Gettis as a guest on his “Turnbuckle Weekly” radio show for CBS New York.
If Gettis cannot make a career in football work out, he may look at wrestling as a backup plan. He is good friends with WWE Superstar Big E. The two were teammates on the University of Iowa’s football team at one point in time, and have stayed in touch since then.
Gettis gave his thoughts on Brock Lesnar winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and what it means for WWE:
“I think it’s a great idea that he won. I went to Mick Foley’s [comedy show,] and he said that the perfect person to go over on John Cena and win the championship was Brock Lesnar. And I agree with him totally. But the way he did it though, I thought it was awesome. Finally somebody just went out and dominated John Cena for the first time. I was happy to see it. I am a John Cena fan, but it was good for somebody else to go over on him as good as he did.”
Continuing, Gettis was asked to compare how John Cena looked after the match, with the look NFL players give off when they are concussed:
“After that second suplex, you could just see it in his face. He started turning red and he was holding his neck and he just had that glazed look over his eyes. I just knew after that it wasn’t a good deal at all.”
Gettis even compared John Cena to Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III:
“With John Cena, his whole deal is to work hard and whatever you do is going to pay off. I know RG works his butt off in the weight room. He’s in the film room probably seven hours after practice. He’s usually the first one in and the last one out.”
Be sure to to listen to the entire interview, here. Gettis delves into his relationship with Big E, looks at Roman Reigns’ big push, and much more.
Interesting take from Gettis, which makes you think.
