WrestleMania 40 this past weekend featured a guest appearance from now-retired NFL star Jason Kelce that fans certainly got off their feet for. And it now turns out, the company could be interested in bringing Kelce in on more of a full-time role.

Kelce and former Philadelphia Eagles teammate Lane Johnson interfered in the tag-team match between Rey Mysterio and Andrade versus Santos Escobar and Dominik Mysterio, coming out of the stands with Eagles-themed Luchador masks.

After the match, the two masked men took off their masks, getting a huge ovation from the home crowd in Philadelphia.

It was a fun moment for fans in attendance. And according to TMZ, the WWE would be interested in bringing back Kelce for other opportunities in the future.

WWE superstar Mike Mizanin, better known by his WWE name “The Miz”, even recently offered to train Kelce if he decided that he wanted to take up wrestling a bit more seriously.

“I’d train him into a superstar. As big of a superstar as he is in the NFL, we’ll make him as big of a superstar in WWE. He could be very dangerous in a WWE ring.”

Mizanin is absolutely correct in his assessment. With Kelce’s size and athleticism, he could very well be a star in professional wrestling if he was interested in diving deeper into the industry in the WWE.

It could be a very interesting post-NFL career choice on the table for Kelce. But as of right now, it remains to be seen if Kelce is interested in anything more than his WrestleMania 40 guest appearance.
