Tim Wiese was in Germany's World Cup squad for the 2010 tournament. As Germany announce their squad for this time around, four years on, pictures of the German have emerged, and they show a fairly enormous transition.

Wiese left football in January this year after falling out of favour at Hoffenheim

Update: Sept. 16 at 5:15 p.m. ET

It looks like Wiese may be looking at using his muscular body to pursue a new career.

Wiese told German tabloid Bild that he could try a different sport: "I have an official enquiry from the WWE. It’s about working for them as a wrestler. I will listen. I don’t s*** my pants. Why should I immediately say no? Wrestling is very popular, especially in the [United] States. I will go through the enquiry with my agent next week."

It's a remarkable change, as the pictures show:
