    Well, I know a lot of guys are going to say "none" but whatever.

    Since CM Punk and Brock Lesnar we're signed by the UFC, I've been thinking about a lot of guys transitioning from PW to MMA. I don't know how well those guys could take a punch or something like that. I'm just looking for some interesting additions to MMA, being a good or bad fighter. Just wanna know how they fare inside the cage. (I am not counting their age, either)

    For me:

    Jack Swagger: decent wrestler and also played football, big guy, would be fun to watch him at HW. The guys is 6 ft 7 in and 275 lb.

    Titus O'Neil: professional wrestler and football player. Also a big guy and looks like a bad mofo.

    John Cena: sure, I wanted to see him face Lesnar in a reall fight and get bulldozed, but he's already quite old. Still, would be fun to see how he goes.

    Roman Reigns: former wrestler and football player. Samoan-American, this alone could turn him into Hunt :icon_lol: lol

    And final:

    The Rock: Former football player. Of course I would like to see Dwayne Johnson fighting for real inside the octagon. Unfortunately, like Cena, it's too late for him :icon_neut

    I only become aware of Pro Wrestlers if/when they make their way to MMA. I guess any of them would be fun for the sake of a freakshow fight though, and I know there's some dudes with legit wrestling pedigree.
     
  6. Prime Iron Shiek
     
  7. Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka would have shown you uneducated fools what the Showtime Pettis kick did not.

    No idea who most of these guys are. Get Dusty Rhodes in the UFC.

    All of these "fighters" would fail PED tests. They have probably done steroids for years.

    Or one of the HUGE guys of comparable size, since the he's dead.

    Would make an awesome freakshow fight over in Japan.

    Swagger pinned Cain if i recall correctly so he's an obvious choice

    Ziggler set a record for pins at his University so he's a good choice

    Dean Ambrose grew up on the streets and did a lot of hardcore wrestling so he's probably tough enough that he can work hard and become a decent journeyman

    Swagger was apparently fucking legit wrestler, as mentioned above, so why not.

    of course most sherdoggers are going to run this into shit because most seem to have a strong hate for the wwe

    i agree Jack Swagger would be excellent in the UFC the guy is not only huge but he has freakishly long limbs as well im sure his reach is insane, he also has legit wrestling skills and ive heard he out wrestled Cain back in the hay day

    another dude i'd like to see is Wade Barret
    he is a pretty big tough dude that i heard use to do some bare knuckle fighting as a plus he is British and has one hell of a sense of humor and good trash talking...we're looking at a HW Bisping here
