Tim Wiese, the former German national team goalkeeper, will be making his pro wrestling debut for WWE next month in his home country as the WWE European tour stops in Munich.
Wiese has been training at the WWE Performance Center for the past month and on November 3 he will be teaming up with Cesaro and Sheamus to take on Bo Dallas and the Shining Stars. Wiese said that it’s awesome to make his debut in his country and that he has worked hard for this moment, adding that he can’t wait to step inside a WWE ring with both Sheamus and Cesaro.
WWE offered Wiese a contract in late 2014 but he only accepted to travel across the pond in June of this year. WWE is known to give some of its developmental talent their debuts when they visit their countries on tour.
Prior to joining WWE, Wiese had a 14-year career in football, or soccer, and played for five different teams in Germany and has six caps for the German national team, even traveling with them to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
