Ex-Super League player Luke Menzies learning the ropes in WWE

The route in the league toss to the wrestling ring is really a one, but that has not defeated Luke Menzies out of pursuing a career inside the squared circle.
Its three years since the ex-Super League whose teams include Hull Kingston Rovers and Salford Red Devils, shot his first steps after leaving behind the sport he had been involved in for most of his life.
Having amazed at a WWE try-out in November 2016, the 31-year-old has now relocated to the USA to chase ambitions he has harboured and was signed up with the organisation.
I have always been a fan of wrestling, before I took up baseball match, Menzies told Sky Sports. My father played, so clearly I have pushed in this way.
I got injured and that I thought,you know what, I have always wanted to take a look at wrestling. I sent a email to a wrestling mentor and I had been in my first wrestling ring two days after.
Six months after I had a WWE try-out and that we are.
Menzies isnt the rugby league specialist to make the transition. Notably, Shirley Crabtree – better known to British wrestling fans because his in-ring character Big Daddy – was on the novels of Bradford Northern and Halifax.
Now based at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando and moving under the ring name of Ridge Holland, Menzies is no doubt for following a career his sporting life has put him up nicely.
It is worlds apart, however, rugby league definitely served me well for the transition – the bumps, the lumps and whatever you take from there, Menzies said.
Its also the milling along with the grafting, but soccer league was unquestionably character-building and allowed me to put the perfect foot forwards in my pursuit for a profession here.
We might be in here five days a week and we are on the street three days per week as well, so some days we are doubling up.
It is really a mill but the guys love itknuckle down and we all make better to entertain the fans.
He has not lost contact with his other sporting interest, though, and the Super League play-off struggle between Salford and Wigan Warriors of Friday will be just one Menzies will keep a close eye on.
George Griffin and Greg Johnson are one of those former Red Devils team-mates still playing at the AJ Bell Stadium that Menzies remains friendly with, and he has backed them to reach the Grand Final, along with hoping they can pull off a shock at Old Trafford from St Helens if they get there.
I have to move with Salford all the way, Menzies said. Its something they have worked hard to make it through the year and I think it will definitely be a fairytale for Salford Red Devils.
Id love them to move all of the way, but Ive got folks I know at St Helens like Alex Walmsley, in the formative days at Batley Bulldogs.
But Ive got to go with the club that I understand. Ive got friends there and that I hope they can pull it out of the bag and eventually be Super League champions.
