Former English football player Stuart Tomlinson is now signed to the WWE and he has explained his delight at working with bikini models and getting slapped '50 times' a day.

Tomlinson had to retire from playing in the English football League Two for Burton Albion last year after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament.

However, his desperation was short lived after he signed a development contract with the WWE pro-wrestling company. 

The former goalkeeper has now had a new lease of life and he admits that training with bikini models is slightly surreal. 

He feels it's something that still takes some getting used to, alongside getting slapped as he prepares for a debut in the WWE wrestling ring someday. 

"I train with a 6ft 8in, 26st American strongman, female arm wrestling pros and bikini models. They're all dynamic," Tomlinson said via Digital Spy

"If you can't move, you're no good. I got slammed about 50 times the other day. We're learning how to do it safely but I still feel like I've got whiplash."

The 28-year-old secured his deal with the WWE in slightly bizarre fashion after appearing in a photo shoot for Men's Health, with the big man giving his thanks to the magazine. 

"I owe a huge thank you to Men's Health," Tomlinson added. The WWE saw my pictures in the [April 2013] mag and tracked me down for a trial. After an hour in the ring they gave me a contract."
