“The Big Dog” is coming to ESPN’s College GameDay this week.
On Thursday, the college football kickoff show announced that WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will be on set this Saturday serving as the guest picker for Week 3.
Reigns, whose real name is Leati Anoa’i, played college football at Georgia Tech. He signed with both the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars for brief stints in 2007, but he never played an NFL game. He played one season in the CFL with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2008.

After his football career ended, Reigns turned to professional wrestling in 2010. He made his WWE debut in 2012. Since then, he is a one-time Universal Champion and a three-time WWE Champion, and he has been in the main event at Wrestlemania four times.
Reigns became Universal Champion when he defeated Brock Lesnar at Summerslam on Aug. 19.
College GameDay is airing live from TCU on Saturday. The No. 15 Horned Frogs are set to play No. 4 Ohio State at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
