IF FORMER Eagle Luke Partington doesn't get a second chance in this year's NAB AFL Draft, the WWE might come calling.
The Glenlg midfielder made his professional wrestling debut on Saturday night in the 30-man 'Riot City Rumble Match'.

West Coast delisted Partington at the end of 2018, after six games with the club.
The 22-year-old had a successful SANFL return in 2019 winning the premiership with the Tigers, while also taking home the Magarey Medal for the League's best and fairest.
Partington also starred in South Australia's NAB AFL State Combine, finishing second in the 20-metre sprint and third in the Yo-Yo test.
He recorded a 2.87 20-metre sprint time in 2019, after not finishing in the top 10 at the 2015 NAB AFL Draft Combine.
