In case you didn’t know…

Marco Rene Estrada is a Mexican-American baseball competitor who presently serves as a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays in the MLB (Major League Baseball).

The 34-year-old has evidently followed in the footsteps of his teammates Marcus Stroman and Aaron Sanchez, by watching a WWE show in person.

The heart of the matter

Marco Estrada can be seen with a WWE Championship belt in tow at the front row, which could be a way to bring more than a fair share of eyeballs to the WWE, particularly from baseball fans who may not follow the daily happenings of the WWE.

As of the time of this writing, neither the WWE nor Marco Estrada have revealed any plans of possibly working out a special celebrity appearance by the baseball star on WWE programming in the days to come.

What’s next?

Rumour has it that the 2017 calendar year may be the last for Marco Estrada with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Author’s take

Marco Estrada is one of the most popular baseball players today, and undoubtedly one of the most talented as well.

Given the lack of star-power the WWE traditionally struggles through in its post-Wrestlemania season, especially till the Royal Rumble, the WWE can most definitely use Estrada’s star-power to its benefit should they come to an agreement with him for a celebrity segment on RAW or SmackDown in the weeks to come.
