WWE invites NFL free agent Michael Sam to RAW next week

After being left out of the St. Louis Rams from practice squad, WWE invited NFL defensive end free agent Michael Sam to Monday Night Raw next week.

Sam is trying to be the NFL’s first openly gay player and after he was cut, WWE was quick to offer an invite with a letter penned by WWE’s Chief Brand Officer, Stephanie McMahon.

“Exhibiting class and dignity rarely shown in professional sports, Michael Sam, WWE invites you to next Monday’s Raw to speak of your struggles to succeed, lessons you have learned along the way, the courage it takes to be yourself and the prospects of your continued journey,” wrote McMahon. “You are a role model, who, by example, can encourage everyone to stand up and openly be themselves.”

WWE has Darren Young who came out as gay last year just prior to SummerSlam, becoming the first openly gay active wrestler in the WWE.
