PICTURE: Is this ex-Arsenal player auditioning for the WWE?

Alex Song has posted a photo on one of his social media networks… but he may have wanted to check the mirror first.

Legendary tag team wrestlers Hawk and Animal represented an iconic stable of muscle-bound wrestlers in the 1990s… together, they were, The Legion of Doom.

In their various incarnations they won the PWI Tag Team of the Year award a strong four times, they won the WWF Tag Team titles twice and were eventually inducted into the WWE half of fame in 2011.

Take one Google search of these face-painted grapplers, come back to this page and you'll see there is an uncanny resemblance to Barcelona squad player and former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song, 26.

Song has been linked with an incredible Emirates Stadium return but he better change before having any meetings as, like Hawk and Animal, he might scare off any potential suitors - whether that's Arsenal or not.
