World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is in Frankfurt, Germany tonight, and it looks like the rumors about Tim Wiese are true. The former Werder Bremen goalkeeper bulked up quite impressively since his retirement from professional football, and rumors have been swirling that he would be joining WWE to begin training as a wrestling in the coming weeks.
Well, we now have footage of Wiese at the event. He acted as the special guest timekeeper in a match between The Usos and Gold & Stardust. Wiese had to be "stopped" from entering the ring during the match.

However, he would make it into the ring after the match and flexed for the crowd.
Then, he danced.
Wiese looks like he fits in perfectly with these guys.

And, you know what, seeing Wiese actually performing in the ring may not be that far fetched. Former WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations Jim Ross had this to say when asked about Wiese.
