    Daniel Vidot has reportedly earned a contract to be a professional wrestler with the WWE.

    I'm glad he followed his dream and looks set to become a regular in the wrestling ring.
    Not like the other bloke who attempted to follow his dream, gave up, followed another dream, gave that one up too and ended up back where he started........I think his name was "Plain" or something similar.

    There's a quite long list of big strong wingers who haven't made it at the Dragons over the last few years, I wonder why that is?

    Hands like a digital watch poor bloke.
    I reckon he had what it took, always thought he ran too upright both on kick returns and finding his way to a corner. Good luck to him, quite the effort if he has a contract with that stuff.

    Good luck to him. Always enjoyed watching him play for us. He dropped a lot of balls, but I have fond memories of him scoring some spectacular tries, and running up the field with what seemed like half the opposition on his back. Hope he kills it in wrestling.

    I can already hear the American commentators saying, "Daniel Vidot, former Rugby player".

    I think he was put into there development program a couple of years ago.
    It takes them a while to decide if your worth a contract.

    I'd like to see them bring back the midgets then Vidot could take Alfie Langer over with him.

    I remember about 4 or 5 years back I was at Wollongong for the game against Raiders. Jarrod Crocker intercepted us on the east touchline where I was on the hill and headed off down the field with 85 metres in front of him.

    Josh Dugan chased across but was being left behind. I then saw Daniel hearing across from the other wing and I didn’t give him a hope. Looking down the field from a distance I was waiting for Crocker to dive over but Daniel collared him about 3 metres out and dragged him over the side line.

    I never quite understood why with his size and speed he never played even State of Origin

    How come you put OT at the beginning of the thread title? I have seen it on other threads on this site and thought that it was directed at Old Timer, but then I saw it on a thread on a different club's forum.

    Off topic.
    Though I don’t know why, it is Dragons and football related so I shouldn’t have bothered.

    Didnt you know that Old Timer is actually Daniel Vidot? I though that was pretty common knowledge...
