Andy Carroll reacts to wrestling career suggestions, sends challenge to Triple H

Triple H

West Ham striker Andy Carroll has been touted for a wrestling career - by WWE superstar Triple H.

West Ham United striker Andy Carroll has taken to Twitter to respond to WWE superstar Triple H's comments about a future wrestling career.

On Wednesday, 13-time champion Triple H told ITV that he loves West Ham United, and was asked to pick out a player who could succeed in the squared circle - and chose giant striker Carroll.

"He is tall, likes to play it tough with the opposition and has the right looks with the long hair. He could be interesting," said Triple H, sparking comments from WWE and West Ham fans on Twitter.

As Triple H, real name Paul Levesque, was preparing to host developmental promotion NXT's final show of their UK tour at Wembley's SSE Arena, he took to Twitter in order to pose with a picture with his West Ham shirt having received it during his time in London.

Not long after that, Carroll caught wind of the comments about having a wrestling career - and vowed to get the better of Triple H in a real fight! The conversation continued as Triple H told Carroll to tune in to NXT TakeOver: London in order to learn some things about the world of wrestling.

Carroll then pitched the idea of a four-man tag match, where he would team up with UFC sensation and featherweight champion Conor McGregor, and Triple H and Sheamus in a bizarre, yet hilarious interaction on Twitter. 

Just over a month ago, Wayne Rooney was involved in a segment on WWE Raw with Wade Barrett, slapping the Preston-born superstar after a torrent of abuse.

Now Carroll has got involved, we may end up seeing him at a WWE show in London in the future - though, after Rooney's involvement, maybe WWE are targeting all the goal-shy Premier League strikers!
