Ex-Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers hold talks with WWE over wrestling switch

Former Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers is planning to debut in the WWE after enjoying a successful start to his MMA career.

The 33-year-old has fought four times for the US Promoter Bellator and now has ambitions to tackle wrestling.

Chalmers has taken on the Joker nickname that was bestowed on him during his MMA debut. 

His agent has held talks with the WWE ahead of a possible debut in NXT and he has already begun his training.

Chalmers told The Sun : "I've always said after Bellator, wrestling is what I want to take up, but I also want to try and run it alongside Bellator as soon as possible.

"I want to keep as busy as I can, if I'm not fighting I'm wrestling.

"I want to try build The Joker brand as big and as worldwide as I possibly can. What better way to fight on Bellator and be on NXT/WWE.

"I entertained on MTV, which got me over to Bellator and then I can exaggerate it over to WWE. One thing that does not bother me is the cameras.

"What I lack in skillset I make up for in character."

Chalmers lost his last fight in the cage back in February but is planning on another fight later this year.

And whilst he has genuine wrestling ambitions MMA will remain top of his priority list.

He added: "Bellator will always be the priority. Eight weeks out from a fight it would be purely MMA, then we would pick the wrestling back up afterwards.

"While I feel I can physically compete at a good standard I'm going to stay in MMA. Another three good years until I'm 36 and try finish with 15-20 fights that would be me done.

"When I feel like I'm done physically in my body then I'll call it a day. I was only meant to go in there and have one fight now I've had seven so if I can get to 15-20 then I'd be more than happy."
