It's a far cry from running around in a trash bag in "the sweatbox," but Quinn Ojinnaka is back doing what he loves perhaps as much as football.
Time may be almost up on his seven-year NFL career. But instead of sulking while waiting for a phone call, the former Syracuse offensive lineman is spending his time in an Atlanta gym training for professional wrestling.
"Moose," as he’s called in the ring, is staying loose.
He had a tryout with the WWE in early February and is expected to have a second later this month in Florida. Depending on how he performs then, he could be signed to a developmental contract or have to return to Florida for another tryout in June.
"I hate to say this because I'm against it by all means. It's kind of like being married and having a mistress on the side," Ojinnaka said. "Football is something I love doing, and obviously I'm not doing it right now, but I have something on the side that I love even more than football, which is wrestling. It's like having two wives. OK, one wife leaves me. OK, I'm just gonna ride with my other wife."
Actually, the first time Ojinnaka ventured into the sport of wrestling, he hated it. Tipping the scale around 260 pounds in high school, he needed to drop about 30 pounds to compete as a heavyweight. The team practiced in what Ojinnaka called "the sweatbox," which was so hot he could see steam rise toward the ceiling. He practiced in a trash bag to sweat out water weight, lost about 10 pounds by the end of the first week and quickly realized he was jeopardizing his football future.
"If I had continued to wrestle, I probably would've wound up having to play linebacker or fullback or something," Ojinnaka said. "I probably would've sucked at it and wouldn't have had a chance to go to Syracuse, so I had to quit."
He remained an ardent spectator of professional wrestling. He raced home from football practice or class at Syracuse by 8 p.m. to catch WWE "Monday Night Raw," and as a 10-year-old, he and his older brother Chaney emulated Hulk Hogan's voice and mannerisms.
But he didn't have a chance to venture into professional wrestling until 2011, in between his first stint with the Rams and Colts. Ojinnaka enrolled at WWA4 Pro Wrestling School, paid his membership fee -- which now runs $990 for three years of training -- and started pursuing his second passion.
The first two weeks were rough. His back became sore in two spots from hitting the ropes of the ring. It was adjustment, but Ojinnaka picked up the wrestling moves pretty quickly because of his agility from playing football.
His primary trainer is Curtis "Big Cat" Hughes, who has spent more than 20 years wrestling in the World Wrestling Federation, Extreme Championship Wrestling and on the independent circuit."He's probably the best trainer in the country," said John Ross, one of the few wrestlers at the school who can handle Ojinnaka's size in training. Hughes also played football at Kansas State and understands the pull of earning a living playing professionally as long as possible. Hughes never made Ojinnaka choose one over the other, even when he left the wrestling school to sign with the Colts only to show up back at the gym the following year.
"I can tell he's serious now from the first time he left," Hughes said. "I know when he came back he was more focused on being a wrestler than playing football."
Film study enabled Ojinnaka to grasp the psychology of wrestling, which essentially is playing up "injuries" throughout a match. He weighs 280 pounds but recently started a diet to add a couple more pounds of muscle and lean out.
"I'm sure they want you to look presentable," Ojinnaka said. "A lot of guys wrestle with their shirt off, so I know they don't want you all sloppy and fat looking. But I could be wrong."
Said Ross: "They're body builders. Super human. Look at (WWE Chairman and CEO) Vince (McMahon). What he wants when he hires people is for them to look bigger than life."
Moose has the look, and he insists he would be at peace even if he never played another down of football. Bob Wylie, his former offensive line coach at Syracuse, isn't so sure his football days are behind him.
"I don't know if the other teams have done their homework or not done their homework," Wylie said. "The league's a whole lot different now. They got a lot of guys in there who have their own opinion on how it should work.
"Is he gonna be a Hall of Famer someday? No. But he's gonna be a solid player and he's gonna do what he needs to do.
"But even if Ojinnaka never gets another NFL call, it wouldn't change who he is as a man. Nor would it mean a drastic change in job description.
"If I only wrestled, I still view myself as an athlete," Ojinnaka said. "You put your body in danger every time you step in that ring to entertain people."
