-Cena won't do it, nor should he. He's the poster boy of WWE and he'd lose MILLIONS by leaving Vince.

-Masters should just enter body building.

-Regal is like 50, same with the Undertaker. I'd say NO to either of these two. The author is an idiot for including them. The Undertaker can't go a Wrestlemania at this point in his career without needed 3-6 mos off to heal his injuries.

-I won't lie, I would LOVE to see Beth Phoenix in women's MMA. Damn that woman is hot.

-Nick Nemeth (Dolph Ziggler) could actually make a very interesting choice if he transitioned to MMA. He was a very accomplished wrestler in both HS and at Kent St. Plus, he's only 29.

-Kozlov would also be an interesting choice because he is trained in MMA, especially Sambo, grappling, kickboxing, and judo, but he's 38.

-Jack Hager (Swagger) would also be a very interesting transition to MMA. He'd be in the HW division, though. He's 6'5" around 260-5. He's 28. get him in with the right camp and I'd be all for this.

-Shad Gaspard would be an interesting addition because he's 6'7" but I'm guessing he's closer to 300 than 265, I don't know if he could make the weight.

-Anthony Carelli (Santino) can do anything he wants, plus he WAS an MMA fighter. That man cracks me up.

Here's a video I was able to find of Anthony Carelli (Santino) from his Ohio Valley Wrestling days. It was a promo billing him as a Mixed Martial Artist from Russia. Obviously everything is fake except his technique.

FYI, Santino's character in OVW was to "Be Fedor". Paul Heyan gave him the gimmick and eventually Kozlov was asked to do the same.

No, that list is stupid. Only a few of those have any real training, and most of them are just physical athletes. MMA and Pro wrestling might have a crossover fan base, but they're nothing alike, and the fact that lesnar made the crossover was a fluke, not the norm.

Pro wrestlers have been crossing over into the world of MMA for years, and vice versa, I'm not sure why you think this.
