The 38-year-old Wycombe Wanderers’ striker was recently named the strongest player in the world according to Fifa 21 ratings.
Consequently, a career in professional wrestling seems possible for a man popularly called ‘The Beast’.
Akinfenwa first showed interest in wrestling in April 2019 as it was gathered that he had the passion after a meeting with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
His children are also said to be a lover of the sport, and now, the EFL star says swapping penalties for piled rivers remains a very real possibility.
