I think pro wrestlers would have a lot more gas too due to the longer nature of their bouts and the added physicality of acrobatics, running, and taking weapon shots

CM Punk trains jiu jitsu but throws a white belt on when he trains with the gracie's so I have no Idea how good he is.

Little known fact about Daniel Bryan is that he used to live with Lyoto Machida in Japan. This doesn't make him a good fighter but is pretty funny.

Ziggler and Swagger both have great amateur wrestling records and you look at how well askren has done you imagine that they could both hold their own in Bellator at least.

Taker expressed that if mma was as hot as it is now he would have done that instead of wrestling. Whether this means he would be good or not is up for question.

Remember Daniel Puder? Well he was undefeated and Benoit and Guerrero used to beat the shit out him. Guys with their commitment would probably do a decent job.

As for the op's suggestion of Henry and Cena you must be trolling and probably are. Both of these would be terrible Cena can't even make a fake punch look good and henry is painfully slow.

Another interesting question is who could cross over the other way. There isn't too much precedence of this with Shamrock and Severn crossing over to little critical success. I'm sure Chael would be able to do it with ease and I hope Vince Mcmahon is aware of his existence.

As someone suggested previously Josh Barnett is one who has had a great deal of success in both.

Harry Smith (David Hart Smith) left wwe last year and intended to go into mma. Be interesting to see if the Hart dungeon training crosses over to mma at all. I know that they used to learn legit holds and seems like a traditional catch wrestling type of camp.

The great Regal is certainly a throwback to the old catch wresltling style where they used to go round challenging locals. He admits himself that he wasn't gifted athletically so he may not have done too well.

Oh and the Del Rio cro cop fight looked as fake as giant silva vs akebono. I think Ricardo Rodriguez could last longer than Del Rio did.

Mark Henry and John Cena would get their shit kicked in. Cena is strong as a bull but not athletic at all. Guy tore his pectoral muscle doing an arm drag for christs sake. Mark Henry is just old, but surprisingly in better shape now than he was a few years ago.

Yea he'd be my first pick. Terrible pro wrestler, awful on the mic but very athletic for his size. Not to mention, like you said, he's pretty good at actually wrestling.

Other mentions would be Dolph Ziggler, prime Randy Orton and prime Kurt Angle.

The current WHC fought Mirko Cro Cop in MMA and got his head kicked off. He was the dude with the mask.

I was always more curious about some of these freak athletes in the NFL or NBA. Like LeBron James 6"8 260lbs of athletic freak.

You have some freak TEs as well like Jason Witten 6'6 260lbs and tough as nails. Played a game less then a week after breaking his jaw.
Rob Gronkowski 6"6 265lbs athletic freak of nature.

I just wonder what these kind of freak athletes could do if they were trained fighters. They are the best athletes in the World and far superior in that department then any WWE or UFC guy. They also make crazy money.

Shaq seriously tried to fight Brock on a couple occasions. He supposedly trained for a few years.

But guys like Adrian Peterson would be interesting as well. Just insane strength and athletic ability. I think Peterson would destroy LeBron. DeMarco Murray actually trains and was sponsored by the UFC when he was trying to make the cover of NCAA video game. I have seen him training with Maia and others.

Jared Allen is another massive athlete who actually did the Jay Glazier MMA training to improve his hips for the NFL. 6'6 270lbs and the dude is a beast.
