Former UCF Knights tight end Cal Bloom, who played from 2013-2016, has joined the WWE Performance Center in Orlando with an eye to becoming a WWE wrestler.

At UCF, Bloom, who was listed at 6’ 4” and 250 pounds, caught five passes in 37 career games. He graduated after the 2016 season.

Bloom’s father is Wayne Bloom, who wrestled in the WCW and WWF under the name Beau Beverly. He was one half of the Beverly Brothers tag team with Mike Enos (also known as Blake Beverly).

Bloom and his classmates will now enter the WWE NXT roster. NXT occasionally performs shows at Full Sail University in Winter Park.
