Former NRL player Daniel Vidot is taking the wrestling world by storm, stunning WWE fans with an epic move in his latest appearance.
Vidot played 124 games in the NRL before retiring in 2017, announcing his plans to pursue a professional wrestling career with WWE.
The 31-year-old, who is known in the ring as Xyon Quinn, signed a development contract with WWE in 2018 and made his on-screen debut on Smackdown last year, losing to WWE superstar Sheamus.
Following years of training, Vidot has recently been rewarded with weekly appearances on WWE’s high-profile shows 205 Live and NXT.
He has burst onto the WWE scene and notched up his seventh win in a row over the weekend with another strong performance against Ru Feng.
Vidot had to contend with a couple of mini attacks from Feng but ultimately outclassed him, sealing the win by landing a menacing forearm.
But it was a creative move midway through the match that attracted the attention of viewers and endeared him to diehard WWE fans.
