I wish MMA would stop talking shit about pro wrestlers. I think because of the fact that he was in the WWE his cardio and toughness factors are among the top in either buisness.
All in all though he could work on getting a little lighter....if he can. It would definatly Help his chances of getting into one of the better orgs.
I don't believe they are, as you said it, "talking shit" about pro wrestlers. They are just saying that he needs some work if he wishes to be a serious competitor in MMA, and I totally agree with them. This sport isn't some game you can just show up for, thinking you know how to play. It's going to take years of dedication.
I'm sure he probably does have good cardio from his years as a wrestler, but I am not so sure about his toughness. We will just have to wait and see. I am actually excited to see him in action.
I disagree that that article wasn't talking crap about Pro Wrstling, because it most definitely was. And if you don't think pro wrestlers are tough, you are just not grasping Pro Wrestling. I would in no way say Pro Wrestlers are "athletes", but they are some of the most "in-shape" and toughest men/women around. No they dont really get pile driven to the mat, but they do get beat on, thrown to the concrete, hit with steel chairs, and sustain major injuries. Triple H tore his quad and finished a match, and there are countless other stories. Brock Lesnar himself failed a inverted shooting star, landing directly on his neck, and finished the match. So yeah, Pro Wrestling is Entertainment, no doubt, and MMA is the ultimate in individual athletics. So I don't want to seem like I am putting Pro Wrestling on a pedastool, but give them at least the credit for being some tough SOBs...
