The Call of Duty World League is coming to Anaheim this weekend June 14-16 and Chad Johnson, a former NFL standout, is trying his best to get a look at the action.
The CWL continues in Anaheim and with it being at the tail end of E3, there are some additional eyes on it.
You can count former NFL pro Chad Johnson as one of those people interested as he's in Calfornia because of E3 and wants to give the CWL a chance.
Since his retirement from the NFL, Johnson has made a name for himself in the FIFA community by accepting challenges left and right on Twitter and posting the results afterward, oftentimes with him beating his opponent soundly.
He has dabbled in streaming on Twitch here and there but now he is looking to take his talents further and showing what he can do in the Call of Duty pro scene. He's already proven himself with FIFA so CoD is just the next logical step in his journey.
@CODWorldLeague Hello, can i get credentials so i can watch all the pros play and get their autographs❓— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) June 13, 2019
Johnson has been reaching out to various people in charge of the event and trying to find out how to get involved with this weekend's festivities.
His detective work has paid off and he does have credentials to the event now, but it's still unclear if he'll actually be showing up.
The former Cincinnati Bengals star is also looking to become a pro both in FIFA and in Call of Duty, making him a dual threat in the video game world. Johnson has always shown an interest in video games and his post-NFL career could see him capitalizing on that.
Is it possible for me to be a pro gamer in FIFA & COD❓— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) June 13, 2019
A number of big names in the Call of Duty world responded to Johnson's initial tweet, with some offering him a jersey and some reminding him that he owes them a 1v1.

It almost feels like a true situation of worlds colliding but Johnson seems serious about showing up to the event. If you're watching or attending CWL Anaheim, be on the lookout for Chad Johnson and see if he actually fulfills his end of the deal.
