    Neck injuries prevented him from considering MMA after a 5 year WWF/E stint at that time (2003).

    Dana offered Kurt two separate deals at two separate times but Kurt backed out. Would've fought both LHW and HW. He would've just made more money in Rasslin'.

    First got offered to fight in the UFC in 1996 -10 fights for 150,000 USD or 15k per fight LOL.

    edit - Mods please don't move this.

    Maybe

    Kurt seems like the type who would've transitioned well to mma

    Very bright guy

    Saying that is stupid, considering how many wrestlers have successfully transitioned.

    Smart move. He probably made 10 times more money in pro wrestling than he would have in MMA in the late 90s/early 2000s.

    Well he was a way better wrestler than Randy (Maybe not MMA wrestling), he had unbelievable conditioning and world class toughness. If he entered at the same time as Tito, there's no way Tito beats him. I think he would been great until the striking got more advanced, probably around the time Pride exploded. Also, I don't know his reach, but he looks like he has manlet arms.

    If he came in, in like 2005 he gets fucked up by anybody good.

    The UFC coulda used a dose of The 3 I’s back then. (Intensity, Integrity, and Intelligence for those of you who aren’t mouth-breathing rasslin fans like me.)

    They all started 10 years later than the average fighters and fought at much more competitive divisons than HW/LHW at 2003 or 1996 was.

    I really wish Rulon Gardner kept at it. Always looked up to him when I used to wrestle as a kid.

    A-level-athlete that succeeds at everything he applies himself to. I would not bet against him being UFC-champ in an alternative timeline.
