Big Sam, Neil Warnock and Roy Hodgson as wrestlers? Soccer Slammers has left us in hysterics

Imagine a world where Sam Allardyce, Neil Warnock, Roy Hodgson and other iconic Premier League managers swap football for WWE and tell us you’re not smiling. One Twitter account has made that vision a glorious reality…

With the help of AI, Soccer Slammers have turned some of the Premier League’s big beasts into wrestling-themed action figures and the results are both eye-wateringly funny and true genius.

Each wrestler has unique details, with aspects such as nicknames, special moves, gimmicks, styles and catchphrase included for each figure.

Running with the byline: ‘Bootleg action figures from the nostalgia-inducing, non-existent video game sensation! Soccer Slammers, where the beautiful game meets body-slamming’, the account you desperately need in your life is making waves across social media.

In fact, interest has become stratospheric so quickly that any enterprising company will be desperately getting in touch with the creators to make the figurines in time for Christmas.

We strongly advise you to follow the account in order to not miss out on the next brilliant transformation and, if we’ve still not managed to convince you, here’s a list of the page’s stunning creations to date.
