Former Salford star makes WWE debut

Former Salford winger Daniel Vidot has made his World Wrestling Entertainment television debut, after appearing on Friday night’s edition of Smackdown.

The 30-year-old, who played 10 games for the Red Devils in 2016 as well as making over 100 NRL appearances, has been on the WWE’s books since May 2018, when he signed a developmental contract.

He has spent the last two years learning the trade and appearing on various untelevised cards alongside other members of the development roster.

However, last night he made his TV debut, coming up against 10-year veteran Sheamus at the WWE Performance Centre, where the company have been holding events behind closed doors to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

He lost the match but was clearly proud of the achievement, posting on Twitter afterwards: “When people tell you it can’t be done, do it.”

He had previously been competing under the moniker ‘Ghost Vin Quade’ or ‘The Samoan Ghost’ but appeared under his real name on Friday.

You can see his full match against Sheamus below.
