Not only does Richard Sherman belong to the widely-feared Legion of Boom - which almost certainly lifted its name from former tag team fan favourites Legion of Doom - but he dropped one of the greatest non-wrestler promos of all time after helping to dismantle the San Francisco 49ers in the 2014 NFC Championship game.

"I'M THE BEST ONE IN THE GAME! WHEN YOU TRY ME WITH A SORRY RECEIVER LIKE CRABTREE, THAT'S THE RESULT YOU GONNA GET! DON'T YOU EVER TALK ABOUT ME! DON'T YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH ABOUT THE BEST OR I'M GONNA SHUT IT FOR YOU REAL QUICK!"

That's the kind of magic that Richard Sherman can bring to the WWE's backstage segments. That and a slight Whoopi Goldbergian aesthetic that would be easy for even someone like Roman Reigns to pick on.

Mic skills aside, Sherman is an incredibly speedy and agile cornerback who knows exactly where he needs to be at all times, which is a trait that would help his reaction times in the ring. Can't you see him leaping through the air to deliver a textbook lariat or Lou Thesz press?
