Oakland A’s outfielder and noted pro wrestling aficionado Josh Reddick paid tribute to a fallen WWE legend Monday afternoon.
Reddick arrived for an interview with MLB Network’s “Intentional Talk” dressed in the costume of The Ultimate Warrior, who died of cardiovascular disease earlier this month. The outfielder also copied the wrestler’s patented style of entering the ring by sprinting in from the outfield garage before settling in for the interview.
“Everyone knows I’m a huge wrestling buff,” said Reddick, who made headlines last year for his “beard-off” with WWE star Daniel Bryan. “So, why not? That’s the all-important question — ‘Why not?'”
