Dalton Wagner’s WWE career will wait for now
Former Arkansas offensive tackle Dalton Wagner made some news in December 2021 when he was tabbed as potential WWE star.
That will be on hold for now.
Wagner signed a free-agent deal with the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday. He signed for a guaranteed $225,000, making him the highest-paid of the Raiders’ nondrafted signees. And it’s a solid sign Las Vegas thinks Wagner could make the regular-season roster.
Wagner started all four seasons at Arkansas and at 6-foot-8, 320 pounds, he has the prototypical size for the position in the pros (wrestling, too, incidentally).
The Illinois native allowed just two sacks last year – both against Alabama – and only 11 during his four seasons as starter. The season saw him named first-team All-SEC by Pro Football Focus.
More Arkansas football!
