    A match that will feature two MMA fighters and a UFC Hall of Famer, as Bobby Lashley teams with King Mo Lawal against Stephan Bonnar & Moose (former NFL offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka), will be on a pro wrestling pay-per-view show on Nov. 5.

    Global Force Wrestling, the new name for the promotion formerly known as TNA (Total Nonstop Action), is presenting what has been its traditionally biggest event of the year, and is doing an angle involving American Top Team.

    On the promotion’s television show this past Thursday, Dan Lambert, the owner of ATT, and a longtime pro wrestling fan and memorabilia collector, was heavily focused on, as he arrived as a celebrity guest with a number of team members, including coach Marcus "Conan" Silveira, and UFC fighters Gleison Tibau and Colby Covington. They were shown in the front row during a match with Lashley. After that match, Covington was shown in an angle choking out referee Brian Hebner, who had ruled Lashley had lost his match.

    UFC is just like pro-wrasslin.
    With the difference that wrasslers are better on the mic.

    Tank Abbott had some decent success in WCW. A lot of MMA fighters had success in Japan pro wrestling as well, but yeah I agree, this will bomb.

    He was an indy guy in Northwest for about 10-15 years
    too small to do anything bigger

    Superkick was pretty good.

    Backstory: Filthy does a show with Alvarez every week & they made a $10 bet months ago & Bryan never paid up. He superkicked Filthy & stuffed 2 $5 in his mouth lol

    He had the personality of a twig though

    The UFC guy that will go far is Matt Riddle
