Mike Trout is already the face of MLB (or at least was before Shohei Ohtani broke onto the scene), so why not have him as “a face” in the pro wrestling ring as well?

In a baseball season where so many things have happened, one of the biggest losses of the campaign has been that fans have been cheated out of seeing the now-30-year-old Trout play a season in his prime thanks to a calf injury that has shelved the nine-time All-Star since May 17.

Mike Trout has skills that could translate over

The three-time Most Valuable Player has already shown that he can just about anything on the baseball field, so why not put him in the ring and let him showcase his athletic prowess while battling the forces of evil?

Just like CM Punk’s return to wrestling was celebrated in a big way recently, baseball fans will be rejoicing when Trout makes his return to the diamond. Here’s hoping that’s before the end of the 2021 season.
