WWE TRYOUTS: NBA star Dwight Howard cuts a wrestling promo at WWE tryout in Nashville (The Tennessean)

Dwight Howard is a future Basketball Hall of Famer. And he
may also be a future professional wrestler.

Howard cut a fiery promo in front a crowd at a WWE tryout on
Thursday at Wildhorse Saloon, where WWE is holding tryouts
and other public events ahead of Saturday's SummerSlam
premium live event at Nissan Stadium.

Take a look at the video of Howard's promo, from The Morning
Column's Arash Markazi at

Howard, 36, certainly has the imposing figure (listed at 6-
foot-10 and 265 pounds while playing for the Lakers last
season) to be a successful professional wrestler. In 2015,
Howard hopped into the ring to interrupt then-WWE superstars
Rusev and Lana during a live event show in Houston.

And last year, after Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis
Antetokounmpo taunted Philadelphia 76ers fans by sitting on
the court after a late-game shot, Howard, then on the
Sixers, said he wanted to give the Greek Freak a "Stone Cold
Stunner," the finisher made famous by WWE Hall of Famer
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

There is a pro wrestler somewhere inside the mind of Howard.
As for Thursday's promo, it didn't lack for passion.
