Every wrestling character needs to have some kind of a “schtick” that makes him or her unique. Tampa Bay’s Brett Phillips showcased his in a big way earlier this season, and it could easily translate over to some kind of amazing entrance into the wrestling ring.

Brett Phillips could have the perfect wrestling entrance after his bullpen showing earlier this season

Think about this as the music plays inside your favorite arena and Brett Phillips is introduced. The warmup, the entrance, it is all almost too good.

Sure, Phillips has had some memorable moments other than this (including walking off the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of the 2020 World Series), but this moment in the middle of a blowout loss was absolutely priceless.

Some wrestlers show off their muscles and skills while others use their personalities to win over crowds. Phillips could certainly make an impact with his exuberance and quirks.
