Samoa Joe and CM Punk, who already do a little mma cross training, would be pretty decent.

would love to see Joe v Pat Barry.

Are we including tag teams?

Goldberg would have destroyed everyone in every weight class.

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier

Danny Hodge could have been the LW or FW version of Brock Lesnar he was an Olympian level boxer and wrestler and at 70+ I think he could still take 90% of this forum.

and he liked that apple.

Before wrestling was televised and it was a carnival trick they used to have these guys called "hookers" that would just f up the ring patrons.


Kane actually has some solid MMA skills, and you can find a number of Japanese wrestlers that could have transitioned to MMA.

And then you have a number of wrestlers Shelton Benjamin, Curt Hennig, Kurt Angle, Charlie Haas, Dolph Ziggler etc etc etc.

Yeah I think any of the pro wrestlers that were really good at amateur wrestling might of had a good shot if they had started training right after college or earlier. I think Jack Swagger (real name Jake Hager) could of been pretty good. The guy wrestled at the same time as Cain and IIRC was only a few spots behind him and had to wrestle the guy that won fairly early on. He was also listed as 6'5"-6'6" and 260lb+ as a amateur. Seems like a decently quick and athletic guy for his size too. No clue if he would be any good at striking or submissions but with enough training he might of been and we know he can wrestle. But I think all of those guys are in their 30's and 40's now so I wouldn't expect it to happen and even if it did it might be to late (unless they've been training already).

Oh and Dave Bautista has had one fight last year. But I don't think he had any major experience in other martial arts and he is 44 now.

Obviously a troll thread but responses are funny. Lashley has failed to some extent. Batista had one fight and won but didn't look too good, and his opponent completely sucked. Alberto Del Rio fought Cro Cop once and couldn't last a minute. To try to make the thread serious, outside of Kurt Angle (in his prime), nobody instantly comes to mind. But there are other guys where it's like a "who knows" situation, because aside from people who have recently broken into this business, wrestling has been far more lucrative.
