Kris Kristofferson's Son

Busting Heads at WWE Boot Camp

0202_Jody-Kristofferson

Kris Kristofferson's 6'2", 230-pound BEAST of a son has finally begun his career as a WWE superstar ... and TMZ has obtained pics of the 24-year-old in action on his first day of training camp.

"Big Country" Jody Kristofferson locked horns with several other up-and-coming wrestler's in the WWE's private training facility in Florida this week ... just weeks after inking a developmental contract with the organization.

Jody has been busting his ass for years in the minor league wrestling circuit ... paying his dues in small town wrestling matches ... until he recently attracted the eye of WWE scouts.

We're told officials like the fact that his father is famous ... but they feel he's not just a flash in the pan, and has real potential to be a break-out star.

WWE sources tell us ... trainers were pretty impressed with his work in the ring this week ... but it's unclear when Jody will make his TV debut.

Now that he is in FCW, it is going to be at least 12-18 months if not longer before the WWE will even look at him.

Then he needs to rise up through NXT, and offshoot of RAW and Smackdown where other rookies compete.

Honestly, 2014 at the earliest.

what He said    

If you know anybody in rock n roll and country music ie. Janis Joplin / Johnny Cash...you should know Kris Kristoffersen because he wrote all their best material. Not only that he is a brilliant singer and songwriter in his own right! An original artist who came into his own fame through hard work the hard way working on an oil tanker/pilot/rhode scholar and sacrificing the opinions of parents that actually care about the dangers of fame like drugs/vice.

I see all the comments think that the only reason he was given a shot was because his father was famous, but have any of you seen him in the ring? He did a lot of work down here in the Indy wrestling scene here in CA and he is actually a good wrestler. Ive seen him at plenty of events, face and heel. He deserves a shot.

His father being famous might've gotten him in the door, but it's his work ethic and athletic ability which will keep him there. Don't expect not to see him in WWE... congrats Jody!
