LINEMAN QUINN “MOOSE” OJINNAKA SIGNS WITH RING OF HONOR
BALTIMORE, MD. (June 24, 2014) – Former NFL offensive
lineman Quinn “Moose” Ojinnaka earned a reputation for crushing the competition
on the gridiron and now he’ll be trying his hand at dominating in another full
contact sport. Ojinnaka has signed with Ring of Honor Wrestling (“ROH”) as
revealed on ROH’s live “Best in the World” Pay-Per-View on Sunday
Standing 6’5″ and weighing 295 pounds, Ojinnaka looks to follow in
the footsteps of other football players turned grapplers such as: Ernie Ladd,
Wahoo McDaniel and Bronko Nagurski as he transitions from the football field to
the wrestling ring.
Recruited by Ring of Honor for his agility, power and
size, Ojinnaka is an elite athlete. Demonstrating exceptional potential during
his Ring of Honor Dojo tryout, he’s touted as a blue chip prospect – a label
Ojinnaka is quite familiar with.
Drafted in the 5th round by the Atlanta
Falcons in 2006, Ojinnaka spent 4 years in Atlanta before moving on to play for
the New England Patriots in 2010. That year, he was part of the best offensive
line in the NFL. Ojinnaka would go on to play for the Indianapolis Colts and St.
Louis Rams, utilizing his speed and power to become one of the fiercest
offensive guards in the league.
After over 100 games and achieving his
childhood dream of playing in the NFL, Ojinnaka now hopes to realize another
lifelong dream: winning the Ring of Honor World Heavyweight
Ojinnaka’s quest to accomplish this new challenge begins
shortly as he readies to make his debut in Ring of Honor, an organization known
for its elite level of competition.
