I couldn't care less about WWE stars coming to MMA. There might be a couple with a good wrestling background that will make the transition, but the vast majority of them will either 1) never fight a match and are just using it to get some press, or 2) get their ass handed to them.
Agreed, except for the one special case where one pro wrestling star with amazing credentials should have been in MMA years ago but opted to cash in with the WWE because of how, at the time, its stars were getting paid a whole lot more than the best MMA fighters. (Kurt Angle is a waste of talent.)
The WWE has lost one of its greatest recruiting tools: wrestlers that need a job after they conclude their amateur careers. A lot of its former stars came from collegiate backgrounds.
