WWE congratulates NFL’s Michael Sam and extends Raw invitation

After inviting NFL free agent Michael Sam to Monday Night Raw two days ago, WWE.COM removed the invite graphic and letter penned by Stephanie McMahon from the website after it was revealed that the Dallas Cowboys have signed him up.

The invitation was replaced by a congratulatory message which reads, “Congratulations to Michael Sam on signing with the Dallas Cowboys! WWE will extend its invitation for Michael Sam to appear on any future Monday Night Raw he wishes. We offer our support for Michael as he continues his journey.”

Sam will be the first openly gay player in the NFL and was cut from the St. Louis Rams practice squad last week.

The open invitation from WWE garnered some publicity on major sports websites across the Internet.
