NY Jets’ Bart Scott ‘can’t wait’ for TNA Impact wrestling debut

NY Jets’ Bart Scott ‘can’t wait’ for TNA Impact wrestling debut

Angelina of 'Jersey Shore' fame to also appear

The latest professional football player to cross the line into professional wrestling is New York Jets’ linebacker Bart Scott.

Scott will fulfill a childhood dream when he appears on an upcoming broadcast of TNA Impact wrestling.

ESPN New York reports Scott grew up watching professional wrestling and counts Hulk Hogan, who is just returning from extensive back surgery, as his inspiration for trash-talking. Scott’s postgame rant with ESPN's Sal Paolantonio following the Jets' 28-21 victory over the Patriots in the AFC divisional showdown became an instant YouTube classic.

After Scott chided those who allegedly disrespected the Jets, Paolantonio congratulated the linebacker and said, "See you in Pittsburgh."

Scott then barked the infamous words "Can't wait!" as if he were being interviewed by Mean Gene Okerlund himself.
