Former NFL star, Shawn Merriman has recently joined the ranks of WWE as he aims to launch a second career however, it seems that some members of the WWE universe have no idea who he is.

Chris Jericho, the semi-retired wrestler who held the heavyweight title on a number of occasions has spoken of his confusion when asked about the retired football player.

Jericho was apparently asked whether he would fight Merriman, only for the wrestler to confess he had no idea who he was:

He tweeted: "TMZ camera guy in LAX just asked me if I’d wrestle new @wwe recruit Shawn Merrymen. Who’s Shawn Merrymen? #imoutoftheloop"

We'll forgive Jericho for spelling Merriman's name wrong, afterall the Canadian wrestler took a break from full-time wrestling after 2013 to pursue acting and musical opportunities and it's possible that he is unaware of WWE's latest signing.

Merriman appeared on the pre-Wrestlemania show and it was later revealed that the 29 year-old had agreed to join WWE. It is not yet clear when Merriman will make his first wrestling appearance, but the gridiron star will report to the WWE performance center in Florida to begin his wrestling journey.

Maybe after that, Jericho will be more familiar with the latest edition.
