Olympic gold medalist Kyle Snyder might be the hottest free agent in mixed martial arts or professional wrestling and he’s still only 22 years old.
Fresh off a win to become a three-time NCAA champion, Snyder posted a message on Twitter that teased his potential interest in working with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
While wrestling remains Snyder’s main focus including a run at a second gold medal at the 2020 Olympics, he’s also teased interest in fighting in the UFC and now apparently he’d like to get the attention of the WWE as well.
“Kyle Snyder vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE heavyweight championship of the world. Who wants it to happen?” Snyder wrote on his Twitter account on Monday.

Now it’s no secret that WWE loves to recruit wrestlers out of college or even the Olympics to put into their farm system for the future. In fact, Lesnar was one of the most recruited athletes in the history of WWE after he won the NCAA heavyweight title while wrestling at the University of Minnesota.
Numerous other superstars both past and present including Kurt Angle, Shelton Benjamin, Jack Swagger and many more have come to the WWE after finishing their wrestling careers.
Snyder has also stated in the past that he would like to pursue a fighting career in the UFC after attending a pair of events and really falling in love with the sport. In fact, Snyder just recently offered to help train UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor for any fight he might land with Russian wrecking machine Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Of course, Snyder might just be having a bit of fun considering his main focus will undoubtedly be the 2020 Olympic games but that doesn’t mean he’s not looking towards the future.
If Snyder decides to pursue a career outside of wrestling in the near future, there’s little doubt that organizations like the UFC or WWE would be in hot pursuit of one of the most blue chip athletes in the history of the sport.
