Gogoplata in WWE?

I was hanging out with my friend today and we were talking about Lesnar and how he will fare in MMA. After mentioning The Undertaker being in attendance at UFC 81, he told me that he watched WWE Smackdown on Friday. He said that Undertaker was using some submission that he's seen in MMA before. So we searched for the episode on youtube and found this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5kfBowxMNo). At approximately 4:55, Undertaker goes for a submission. Tough to tell if it's really a gogo, but it sure as hell looks like it. The fact that he's not really using his shin for the choke kinda throws me off. Anyway, I still found it interesting that he's using the move in professional wrestling.

Isn't Taker supposed to be a fan of MMA? If so than I'm kind of happy to see this. Although...it is weird seeing a 300 lb guy do it.

ive seen CM Punk use a bunch of mma related moves,
like maui taui* clinch and TKD kicks.
he also does the wrist roll that Wandy does before every fight.
its cute.

Taker also did a trianlge choke recently. I think that move was a Gogo adapted a bit for wrestling.

Yep, he did one to Batista. The Undertaker is apparently a huge fan of MMA.

I was watching some really old British Prowrestling a few days ago and a guy was using a kimura.

I hear he has a grade in BJJ, I think it was off Sherdog, but who knows. Undertaker is often backstage at UFC events, he's obviously a fan.

He is, yes.

This isn't the first time that the Undertaker has used an MMA move as a finisher. He used to use the triangle choke.
