With MMA Fighter would fare well in the WWE?

First of all i want no bashing on this thread, if you hold a personal grudge against professional wrestling, stay out of the thread unless you can put it aside for a while and talk in perspective.

Now most of you guys should know how WWE and prowrestling works with scripted fights put to further storylines and the whole soup opera they have going. With that said who do you think that could transition into prowrestling?

I think mosts MMA fighters wouldnt have a problems with taking the slams and even less the Prowrestling style striking so their pyshical abilities would be undoubted with that being said the attributes you would need would be: Marketeability, Charisma, Mic Work, looks, size.

I think that Tito Ortiz could really go as a bad guy, i think he has made prowrestling appearences as a referee in the past but i believe he could be succesful at it.

Forrest Griffin, that guy's got heart and i think he could rally a wrestling crowd behind him, i'm not familiar with his ability to speak but that's where you guys come in to the discussion.

Please avoid throwing in the jokes like, "Brock Lesnar could do well..." or that kind of stuff.

I'll say from the combination of Being able to speak to a crowd and his shape(when he trains), Frank Mir would be decent. Same goes for Randy Couture. Both would be easy to Market.

Gcity has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Rampage

Rampage has mic skills and that powerslam could be his finisher!

Rampage is a good choice. I'd also add Tito ortiz.

this thread alone has just made UFC less credible... wwe = trash trash trash trash trash trash trash. white trash entertainment at it's best. comparing ufc or mma to professional wrestling does nothing but make it seem like another backyard hillbilly redneck unworthy of respect shit show

edit: sorry I just realized there was to be no bashing of WWE.....no offense...but it is of about the same quality of programming as Univision

I was watching Wrestling Entertainment when I was a young warthog, and I love watching MMA sports, So i'm not knocking either one.

That being said- Most arguements you can make to say WWE is a hillbilly backyard blablah whatever show you could probably also say about the UFC.

Hate WWE all you want, but when you're going to talk about it, don't just fly off the handle like that. makes you seem less intelligent than you (most likely) are.

Where did i exactly compare the two? i started the thread explaning the huge differences between the two, MMA is a combat sport, Prowrestling is physical theatre. And i already said that if you had nothing to add to the discussion you shouldn't come posting on this thread.
