Michigan offensive lineman Kyle Kalis will be playing in the Orange Bowl this Friday when Michigan takes on Florida State. Then, in the spring, he'll probably get drafted by an NFL team. How long he plays in the NFL is anybody's guess, but after he's done with the NFL, Kyle wants to be a pro wrestler. According to the Free Press, Kyle is  6-feet-5, 305 pounds, so he'll probably have to lose a little weight if he plans on climbing up on turnbuckles, or ladders, or cages. But Michigan offensive line coach Tim Drevno says, "He’d do a good job, from the top of the ring, I think. Leaping off and coming down.”

Coach Drevno thinks Kyle's wrestling character would be like the Tasmanian Devil. Quarterback Wilton Speight's idea for the redheaded Kalis?: "Something having to do with a giant carrot, or something like that."

I can see it now: your 2026 WWE Champion - "Yam Bam".

Here's the story (and a good reason to watch the Orange Bowl).
