But a friend of his signed on...
- According to the Reno-Gazette Journal, University of Nevada, Reno football player Brock Hekking turned down a WWE contract last year. The site reports that Hekking says he was offered a contract (most likely a developmental deal) after the UNR Wolfpack's season was over.
Hekking said that Clayton Jack, his high school friend who was signed to a WWE developmental deal in January, should be debuting soon as "The Mythical Beast." Hekking said he was offered a deal and was encouraged by Jack to sign, but decided to play out his senior season instead. He said wrestling, while it could be profitable for him, is his "Plan B."
