The 37-year-old veteran striker is currently player-coach at National League side Barrow, but has agreed a deal with the British professional wrestling promotion World Association of Wrestling to appear in more than one of their shows.
Holt – who made his name as a target-man playing for Norwich City in the English Championship and Premier League – was announced on the card for WAW’s Fightmare 3 ‘Supershow 2019’, and will team up with the Knight brothers Zak and Roy, who are known as the tag-team the UK Hooligans:

Holt played an important role for Hibs during the 2016/17 campaign, with the Edinburgh club winning the Championship title and promotion back to the Premiership, scoring seven goals in 39 matches.
He was released last year, where he went on to join Barrow, but few could have predicted his next career move.
How do you think he’ll fare in the world of wrestling?
