Meet Fabian Aichner, the first ever Italian WWE NXT wrestler who started his athletic career as a ski racer in The Alps. Fabian was watching TV one night and caught the last 5 minutes of WWE Smackdown Undertaker vs. Brock Lesner and knew instantly he had a new calling in life. He quit the racing circuit but continued to work in the industry as a ski instructor to save up money to pursue his dreams inside the ring. Seems like a really nice dude who was probably excellent with his students and now makes a living body slamming behemoths. Who’d a thunk it?
In case you wanted his ski racing bonafides here’s his FIS profile:
