That's some ignorant shit right there
Newsflash bro,

Pw is a tv show. Everyone knows that. It's fake, just like your favorite show(glee)

Lost was fake too, but nobody cries about the smoke monster

Being a Brit I'm kinda clueless when they mention Divisions, All Amercians etc to do with wrestling!
Well I'll start with divisions. In this context we are talking about the school they are wrestling at. The highest level of competition you can compete at in American college sports is Division 1. Then you have Division 2, Division 3 and Jr College. I believe that is the order it goes in.
But if you are a division 1 National Champion that is the highest level of achievement in college wrestling.
The term All-American varies with sports. Most of the time All-Americans are selected by a committee. However in wrestling the All-Americans are just the top 8 finishes at the national championship tournament. If you place in the top 8 you are given the honors of "All-American".

Admittedly I'm a former WWE fan but I stopped watching around '07 or '08 when they decided to go to the "Sesame Street for big kids" route. Today it's just too childish for me and I enjoyed the darker storylines. It's MEANT to be fake, for crying out loud. I can certainly still appreciate the athletic ability of many of these guys and the hard work they put in to their craft.

Regarding the topic who which pro wrestlers I think could have succeeded, I think Kurt Angle is the most obvious choice. Honestly he probably could have been the LHW GOAT if he started training at a young age and developed some solid striking to his already excellent wrestling and submission fighting.

I think you pretty much answered your own question. I believe more MMA fans would appreciate Pro Wrestling if it still resembled the hardcore, rated R style of the WWF attitude era. I was a HUGE WWE/F fan before getting into MMA, and when I saw Kane make his debut with a huge titantron explosion going in and choke slamming Undertaker after he just finished dominating a bunch of people, that was one of the most exciting things I have every seen in.my life, real or fake. But now, it has taken a much more cheesy route, trying to appeal to a young audience while still trying to clinge on to the old demographic. Around 2007 was when I pretty much was fading away from the WWE, but when Chris Benoit had his incident, that was pretty much the nail in the coffin for me (no pun intended).

But to stay on topic, Kurt Angle was actually supposed to fight with the UFC back at UFC 10, but things couldn't get worked out as far as scheduling. I think if they had been as active back then as they are now, he most certainly would'v been a great MMA fighter.

Shelton Benjamen is another guy who I would'v givin a solid chance at an MMA career. Very strong and explosive athletic guy, he wrestled at Minnisota and had a pretty solid college career, helped out with Brock Lesnar.

Hogan, Savage, Michaels, Hart, Austin and the Rock were why I was a fan for so long. Now it's just horrible...boring storylines, boring personalities and boring matches.
Punk and Cena are able to work the crowd, I'm not a Cena fan but he's good both in ring and on the mic. He can cut promos (stupid ones at times), Punk is great at every aspect. Shamus really isn't anything special, he is not great in ring and he's not good on the mic, but he's scary

Troll thread, but I'll play along. I'd say this guy would have a good chance. Quite a large build but athletic with it. He's also bald with facial hair which also looks super scary. But seriously, imagine if this guy was in top position with little Pat Barry underneath. Would be interesting to see if Pat could escape. I also believe he taught Krav Maga. I heard a story once about how this guy stopped a girl getting jacked in the street using one of those spinning heel kicks, just like the Barboza one on Terry Etim. He then apparently took this girl home and she made sweet sweet love ot him for days as a thankyou.

To be fair, wrestlers are people that are very committed to what they do. They work out almost daily, have to keep their skills sharp as to not hurt each other, and for what they do they are in great physical condition. Replace their wrestling class with an MMA class and the majority of them would be pretty good.
