Fernando Torres linked with WWE Royal Rumble appearance after ex-Chelsea striker’s incredible body transformation

packing a punch

FERNANDO TORRES' amazing body transformation is so extreme even WWE couldn't resist making a comment.

The former Liverpool ace put his El Nino nickname to shame by bulking up after hanging up his boots.

But the world only took notice after announcing his sponsorship partnership with a Southeast Asian casino website.

Torres, 36, has also just been unveiled as the new Atletico Madrid B boss following a coaching role at the side.

So it is unlikely he'll take up a potential offer from the WWE.

After BT Sport Twitter saw the pic of Torres' muscles bulging, they wrote: "'El Nino' looks like he's ready for the Royal Rumble.

"Fernando Torres getting in shape for January 31st."

That is when the sporting organisation hosts the world famous Royal Rumble.

Obviously the chances of that happening are slim to none but it wouldn't be the first time a sporting personality shows up at a WWE event.

New Derby boss Wayne Rooney once squared up with wrestler Wade Barrett at an event in Manchester in 2015.

And heavyweight superstar Tyson Fury fought Braun Strowman in Saudi Arabia in 2019.

The Gypsy King even won on his debut after KO'ing his opponent with a huge punch at Crown Jewel.
