Boston Magazine recently spoke to NBA Boston Celtics player Enes Kanter where he talked about his WWE 24/7 title win.
Here is an excerpt where Kanter stated that he’s still thinking about becoming a WWE wrestler after his basketball career is over.
“It was just so fun. They asked me if I wanted to be a villain or a hero, and I’m like, “A villain!” They said, “You’re going to be the most hated man in New York that night.” I was like, “I’m ready for this, let’s do it.” It is more fun to play the villain. You get all the boos, you get in people’s faces and talk trash to them. I’m even thinking of becoming a WWE wrestler after basketball.
You know, I haven’t figured it out yet. People are saying I can’t be a villain and call myself Turkish Delight. It’s too soft. I think Enes the Menace is a good one. I need to think about it. I know a lot of great people from WWE, and I am sure they help with that once you get there. But I have to finish my basketball career first.”
