DeAngelo does not only get shifty on the field as he does have some pro wrestling experience under his belt. Williams appeared on an episode of IMPACT Wrestling in April of 2017 to save Moose from an attack. Williams, who revealed on numerous platforms that he is a huge wrestling fan shared that he would be making his pro wrestling debut in the following months at IMPACT's 'Slammiversary XV' PPV where he teamed up with Moose to defeat Eli Drake and Chris Adonis.

Following his debut match Williams received tons of praise from those in the wrestling world but his glory was short lived as he announced his retirement from the sport of pro wrestling three days after his debut. Fast forwarding one year later and the hunger to be in the squared circle again returned to DeAngelo Williams as he made an appearance during last night's IMPACT TV tapings. 


Williams was in the ring addressing the crowd and was then interrupted by the current IMPACT World Champion Austin Aries. Things got hot between the two men according to the spoilers from last night which noted that Aries attacked Williams with a steel chair.
