Dwight Howard Takes Part In WWE Tryout

Dwight Howard Takes Part In WWE Tryout – During Thursday’s SummerSlam tryout session in Nashville, Tennessee, former NBA Champion Dwight Howard made a surprise appearance and proceeded to cut a passionate promo in the presence of Triple H and other WWE scouts.

Howard participated in both in-ring drills and a promo showcase at the tryout, before meeting with Triple H. According to ESPN’s Arash Markazi, the tryout session lasted five hours, and Howard intends to be ringside for Saturday’s SummerSlam premium live event. Dwight Howard also told Markazi that he has legitimate plans to pursue a career in WWE.

Markazi also noted that Howard “was asking coaches and attendees how to properly take a bump in the ring and do other moves.”

In his promo, Howard referred to himself as Sho’nuff – the villain from the 1985 movie The Last Dragon. He has previously dressed up as Sho’nuff for Halloween and shared photos on social media.

Howard posted an Instagram video tonight and asked fans what his pro wrestling name should be. You can see that post below, along with footage of Howard with Big E, and more clips from the camp. Howard has re-posted several photos and clips from the camp to his Instagram Stories, including photos with Triple H and WWE NXT Tag Team Champion Brutus Creed.

Howard (36), who stands at 6-foot-10 and 265 pounds, just finished his 18th season in the NBA while under his third stint with the Los Angeles Lakers. He was the #1 pick in the 2004 NBA Draft and is a one-time NBA Champion, an eight-time NBA All-Star, a five-time All-NBA First Team Player, a three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, and has numerous other awards and highlights from his career. He has played for a different NBA team in each of the past seven seasons, and is currently a free agent, which adds a bit of uncertainty around his basketball future.
