WWE is getting another athlete to report to their Performance Center to begin training for a career in professional wrestling.

Former Pittsburgh Pirates minor league pitcher Rinku Singh will report to the WWE Performance Center on Tuesday, the company announced.

Singh is best known for winning the Million Dollar Arm reality show in his native India back in 2008.

The 2014 Disney move, Million Dollar Arm, storied Singh’s journey from javelin thrower to professional pitcher.

Singh commented on his upcoming stint at the Performance Center on WWE.com:

“Take a look at where I came from. When I started [playing baseball], there was nothing. Now we have 23 states [in India] playing baseball and softball. As I go through my journey at the Performance Center and WWE, it will continue to make things easier, and I’ll have millions of people in my corner. It’s going to be a fun journey.”

Singh never made it to the majors, but spent 5 seasons in the minor league posting a record of 10-6 with a 2.97 ERA.
