He might be worth a look. Wrestling occupies a weird place in the sports world, as it is not considered a “real” sport, but the people involved are considered athletes. The people in a ring are going to be putting in some serious effort and that is something that is often recognized. However, there are several sports that are held in higher esteem, but now athletes from a different sport might want to try his hand, and foot, at wrestling.
Tareg Ali Hamedi, a silver medalist in karate in the 2021 Summer Olympics, appeared at WWE Crown Jewel and took out Mustafa Ali, following Ali’s loss to Mansoor. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Hamedi is interested in a career in wrestling as he was impressed by the WWE’s production. WWE would be interested in having a Saudi Arabian celebrity and sports star on its roster. There is no word on when Hamedi would be interested in signing with WWE, should he ever do so.
It was a big moment. Check out the save, the fallout, and some other Olympians in WWE:
Opinion: This makes all the sense in the world as WWE would love to have someone with Olympic success in their ranks. Throw in their relationship with Saudi Arabia and it is even more of a perfect fit. I can’t imagine WWE would turn this down if there is a chance of it working, so maybe they are onto something here. If Hamedi is interested, I’ve heard far worse ideas for WWE.
What did you think of Hamedi’s appearance? Would he work out in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
