  • Pro-Wrestling & Hockey - 15 Ties You May Not Know The ties between pro-wrestling and certain sports is well-known and well documented.  There are scores of amateur wrestlers who went pro, perhaps even more football players and there are a number of boxers, fighters and sumo who became pro-wrestlers.Hockey, despite being a physical sport with regular fights and incredible popularity across Canada, there is not much overlap.  Even when a mailbag question came up on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Live and Dave Meltzer could only cite a few connections.Bobby Roode as a member of Team Canada complete with a Canadian flag on a hockey stickEdge & Aaron DowneyDetroit Red Wings enforcer Aaron Downey played hockey alongside Adam Copeland in Orangeville (outside of ...
