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.

Adam Carriker and Chuck Carroll see a lot of similarities between the madness that goes on throughout an NFL game and the madness exhibited weekly in WWE rings.
So Carriker and Carroll — who co-host “4th & Pain,” a weekly wrestling/football radio show — decided to collide the two worlds, with the help of the WWE.
The duo on Wednesday presented Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon with the first-ever “4th & Pain Championship Belt Player of the Week,” which includes an actual, real-life WWE title belt that will rotate from locker to locker throughout the season.
And trust me, folks — this belt is the real deal. I got a chance to pick it up today, and this baby is heavy — err, I mean, I didn’t have trouble lifting it, but I could see how it could cause troubles for a much-weaker person.
Carroll said the WWE caught wind of “4th & Pain” and approached the show’s co-hosts about what it could do to promote the show and the team.
“We said we wanted to give away a little something-something to the player of the week, but we want to do it pro-wrestling style,” Carroll said. “It’s very cool. I mean, it’s not a sponsor deal at all. They’re doing this because they like the show; they believe in the show.”
