Ex-Gophers Linebacker Mike Rallis' Journey to the WWE

Created: 12/25/2013 11:52 PM KSTP.com

Former Gophers linebacker Mike Rallis (Edina HS) tried to make it in the NFL. He went to mini-camp last summer with the Dolphins. But unfortunately, he wasn't offered a contract. Since then he has taken up a new sport: professional wrestling.

In October, Rallis made it through one round of WWE tryouts at their training center in Orlando. He recently completed a second round, and is awaiting feedback.
