Joe Cox is a standout freshman forward for Michigan State’s men’s ice hockey team, but if hockey doesn’t work out for Cox, he may have a future in professional wrestling.
Cox and several of his Michigan State teammates got into a shoving match with multiple Michigan players late in the third period of Friday’s night’s Big Ten hockey matchup. As the fight progressed, tempers began to flare and Cox actually went ahead and picked up a Michigan player and body slammed him to the ice.

Michigan State won the fight, but Michigan got the best of the Spartans in the game, notching a 5-2 victory.
