Pure Strength: From Football to WWE and Bodybuilding, Stuart Tomlinson

runner sport. Yes, the little ones are impervious. Of course it certainly is. Maximum weights? Limited, but still present between defense, midfield and attack. In football you need agility, know how to move in every situation, get over your weight and be agile. Ibrahimovic knows: with hard training behind him, the body serves only to confront opponents, and keep them away. Sweeping doubts about immobility by 95 kg. Imperceptible proportions, as they are acceptable in modern football, which is full of giants at every turn. Even as the eye moves between the poles to notice the scale needle exceeding the base weight, max, it is seen how much the goalkeeper must have made in combining a height of over 1 meter and 90, a weight that tends to 100 yet unmatched the speed of response verb. As the hero of the role. The higher the weight and the lower the height, resulting in almost opposites appearing, the paradox of the role is observed. The rule, which was never written down but born out of a clear mind instinct, seems to hang from the lintel above the heads of the crowd: if a goalkeeper weighed much more than he was tall, he could not stand out. Basically, maybe. But it all lies in acquired reactivity, modeling, and invasiveness at birth. As the data tends toward opposites, muscle mass becomes visible. discussion topic. examples? Schmeichel, Perozzi and Kahn are very famous. Icons of the nineties and explosives. Like wasps, they knew that they could not fly like others. However, they have already done so. I did to a lesser degree too Stuart Tomlinson.

Schmeichel, Perozi, Khan. Three players who lifted the Champions League title, won with their national team, stamped their mitts on new ground from which to draw molds of their hands. incomparable. Tomlinson won the FA Cup at best. Al-Ain, not the FA Cup, perhaps, Stewart probably thinks of the old land of Albion. An award for semi-professional teams, Stowe, now 36, won in 2010 after permanently leaving his first career sweetheart, Cheshire’s Crewe Alexandra.

Few goalkeepers like Tomlinson have been seen, not just Great Britain. His physique was different from most goalkeepers, even champions of the Danish, Italian and German pasts. Unlike Schmeichel, Pierozzi and Kahn, he never made it to the last step in the football temple. He stopped halfway, either because of fate or with incomparable skill with his teammates. However, Stewart has always admired, soared, and thrown himself from pole to pole (figuratively) in Wakashimazu’s style, Exceeding 100 kg in 185 cm. A big difference for the goalkeeper, which was not a problem for the Chester boy.

You weren’t at the top of English football

Physically in good shape, Tomlinson grew up with Crewe, earning a living from football in the minor leagues. Salaries from the beginning of the light millennium are far from the salaries of the Prime Minister, but also from the tournament that will have the opportunity to study only in the early years as a teenager, in the middle of the youth and half way into the first team. He has always combined his passion for football with his passion for fitness. It became a tank a tank in its exits. Centimeters lost in height are replaced by those in muscle width. Thus, the opponents clashed with him. The ball hits Stewart. So are his dreams.

Tomlinson is constantly injured and will have to say goodbye to football due to a serious knee problem, caused by several knockouts he faced during his career. Ankle, cross and ligaments. They jump. He jumps them, overtakes them, and returns to the field. In the opportune moments, when the top-tier teams are watching him to bring him to their side, more of a footballer than a bodyguard, there is always something to deal with. Primarily the physical problems, but also the economic offers that clubs often find ridiculous and the attitudes they take, cannot be overcome.



With the physique of a bodybuilder, perhaps what will really stop Tomlinson from being an English goalkeeper in sight is his being in very good shape. An extreme look of curiosity rather than respect. Desire, envy, crack. It means a final stop, not a phenomenon. Because whatever you think Stewart might think, he never was. Good goalkeeper, but not great. Those who make their number in the Championship and who even in the face of some small chances in the Premier will eventually have to settle for the third, if not the fourth, series.

When Burton Albion, in the fourth series, had an ACL tear, he was forced to retire. He is only 28 years old. He can’t do otherwise, because the doctors are clear: He risks problems worse than having to skip a race around the verdant English countryside. Sadness is great, but the end is only the beginning.

Tomlinson already has a good looks, a sculptural physique and experience in sports. He knows how to make his body as perfect as possible, studies nutritional values, the intervals between meals, the training series. He was contacted by the well-known magazine Men’s Health, whose cover is of great interest all over the world. He’ll end up there seven times, his Instagram profile description currently says. However, he would be one of the first to win Tomlinson a certain request, which was unexpected even for a Hercules like him. WWE:

The article continues below

“I owe a huge thank you to Men’s Health. WWE saw my photos in the magazine and called me for an audition.”

WWE: Passion becomes business

The United States Wrestling Federation, the most famous in the world, judges the cover first. Then the book. An athlete with 100 kg of muscle? requirements. With the prospect of working as a model, Tomlinson also throws himself at the WWE opportunity by surprise. Not that Stewart is a complete stranger to the world of Rick Rudd, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, a macho man. As he told the Mirror, it was always his old passionate interest anyway:

“My older brother and I always wrestled and had all the old VHS tapes. We grew up watching them, it’s something that always piqued my interest. If you ask any of the guys I’ve played football with, they’ll say I was always there watching Mondays. Night Raw. I was joking at Rehearsals trying to fight them.”

And with a body like that, it might be best if that didn’t happen. Tomlinson plays football on the weekends, trains during the week, and combines a dual passion that will lead him to have both:

“They were looking for talent from the UK, which I was lucky to try, and they immediately forced me to sign the contract and there I was.”

The two worlds are completely different. Football and wrestling are different realities and they also have different possibilities within them. Content also has similarities common to every industry: without experience, you can’t get everything right away. Thompson must wait for his moment, which will only come under the WWE banner in fall 2014, a year after Vince McMahon signed with the company:

“There is no way as an inexperienced footballer to enter the Real Madrid first team directly, then I realize it will take some time. Don’t go in and expect to be on top. Perhaps what most prevented me from appearing on TV was the minor injuries I had.”

If you have the opportunity to attend a WWE broadcast, whether it’s Smackdown, Raw, or the pay-per-view events associated with them, the wording at the beginning of the command itself is constantly there, necessary: ​​”Don’t try this at thome.” In short, OK, legend of wrestlers, but don’t try to imitate them at home. Because behind the fight is stunt training. Knowing how to take hits choreography without risking one’s life:

“My first year I was lucky enough to go to WrestleMania for NXT Axxess, and that’s when I tore my biceps there. I learned how to hit a table, sometimes 50 times in a row. I learned how to do it. Safely., but I still feel like I’m having a stroke. “

Tomlinson is one of a few dozen candidates who have managed to enter the WWE ring facing over 10,000 blessings, we’ll tell you. Despite this, the name Hugo Knox, the nickname used after transitioning into wrestling, will never really be that glossy. The Federation would use it at home and in Ireland for NXT shows, which over time became officially the third roster on a par with Raw and Smackdown, but in terms of media coverage far below the two great historical shows of twenty years.

In the world of wrestling, Tomlinson learns new techniques, showing all the agility of his footballing times. The same people who couldn’t convince the opposing fans, always bent on calling him FatIn a song full of irony hint that he has swallowed all the donuts in town. Of the 112 kg achieved between 2014 and 2016, the year he would leave WWE, very little body fat was observed. Suplex, elbow, projection. Basic wrestling moves in light polka dot briefs.

Unusable when in 2017 he was aware of his chronic knee problems, and he will return to the field in the Sixth English Series. At Altrincham FC, he closed permanently with football, and moved full time into life as a model, personal trainer, and dog lover. Her little British Bulldog even has her own Instagram profile. Ultra-fine, newborn and average size 40 cm, compared to the body of their friend Stewart. He was a wrestling athlete and a soccer player. The goalkeeper, without being one in the eyes of the public. But being so much more than others.
