Carriker’s Exciting Night Of Wrestling

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 2, 2013 – 1:16 pm

Adam Carriker,  Tony Romo

Adam Carriker is one of the strongest players in the league as the gargantuan of a man has been spotted benching as much as 500 pounds.

While I am no weightlifting expert by any stretch of the imagination, I think its safe to assume that a number as massive as that is rarely reached.

While Carriker’s job is to bully over helpless opponents and crush opposing gunslingers, he has taken up a passion for wrestling that has been well documented through the years.

As the new league year kicked off a few weeks ago with the start of free agency, teams are gearing up for the chance to hoist the Lombardi Trophy next February in New Jersey.

In the wrestling world, WWE’s Wrestlemania is equivalent to the Super Bowl and the event will take place in New Jersey this weekend. With WWE making one last pit stop in our Nation’s Capital before the big event, there was no way Carriker wasn’t going to miss a second of the action.

Earlier this week, a unique fan creation showed up at Redskins Park in the form of a Redskins-themed championship belt.  And why not?

The belt comes to Ashburn from James Makle, a firefighter from Prince George’s County, who made the belt for himself a few years ago.  As he stated in his accompanying letter, he was sending the letter to the team so that they may be inspired by the support that fans still have for the team:

I decided to send the belt now because I feel the fans need this…the fans still support the team.  I see all the signs, jerseys and car flags.  The fans still LOVE their REDSKINS.  I hope you guys love the belt…it’s just my way of saying thank you.  Bring the fun back to the NFL.

Thank you,

James Makle

Thanks, James!

With belt in-hand, I knew there was only one man who could truly appreciate the magnificence of a championship belt: defensive end Adam Carriker.  Carriker is an unrepentant fan of professional wrestling, and he also happens to look the part.  He was more than happy to take some pictures and share his wrestling story.

But first, here’s a clip of Carriker talking to the “Schick and Nick Show” on AM 1620 in Omaha, Neb. about his favorite wrestlers growing up:
