The WWE has been holding its tryouts this week in Nashville, Tennessee. One of the biggest names in attendance was Dwight Howard. 

That's right, the eight-time NBA All-Star made an appearance at the WWE's tryouts for SummerSlam week. 

WWE legend Triple H recently shared his thoughts on Howard's future as a professional wrestler. It sounds like he was impressed by the NBA champion's stature. 

“[Howard's] straight from the shadow realm. He came in here and flicked everyone like a booger and it was amazing,” Triple H said, via Wrestling Inc

Triple H actually had a one-on-one conversation with Howard at the event in Nashville. 

Howard truly believes competing in the WWE is in his future. 

"I think it is something that's in my future. I love the WWE. I love wrestling," Howard said. "Hopefully one day in the future, I'll actually be in the ring. ... I've been watching this my whole life and I was like, 'Man, if I had an opportunity to do this, I was going to do it with my whole heart to the best that I can.'"

Even though Howard sounds very interested in the WWE, his current plan is to play in the NBA for the 2022-23 season.
