"Yes, actually. Gary Barnidge played for the Cleveland Browns and he wants to be a wrestler," said Moose. "He was a tight end. I think he made a couple of pro-bowls, actually, too. He wants to be a wrestler. He always asks me about, “Hey, man, you should talk to Scott D’Amore, so we can have that match.” ‘Cause our good buddy DeAngelo Williams was my tag partner a couple of [Slammaversaries] ago. So, Gary actually wants to wrestle, he wants me to be his first opponent. So, you never know, you might see Gary Barnidge in IMPACT! Wrestling at some point.

Barnidge is a 6'5", 250 pound, 34-year old former tight end who finished up his career on the field a few years ago. He's appeared on WWE's Total Divas program, going out on dates with Rosa Mendes and Summer Rae.

This wouldn't be a first for Barnidge. He's actually appeared on IMPACT Wrestling programming with Moose back in 2017. He would also get involved physically in an angle, hitting Davey Richards with a body slam.

As mentioned, Pittsburgh Steelers veteran D'Angelo Williams, as well as Cincinnati Bengals vet Adam "Pacman" Jones have appeared in IMPACT Wrestling in the past.
