I thought I read that this guy was a physical train wreck. Well, assuming he's healthy enough to fight, and assuming the article is right, I still think he'd get his head handed to him.
1) Pro wrestling isn't a real combat sport. His 'real' wrestling would likely be very rusty.
2) Pro wrestling does a ridiculous number of shows per year - there couldn't have been any time for him to train MMA while he was with WWE/TNA.
3) How long has he been training MMA? I don't think you can turn a wrestler into a well-rounded fighter that quickly.
4) How heavy is he? I've read he's 250 lbs, but he wants to fight 205 lb-ers. He'd have to lose a lot of muscle mass.
5) Liddell or Ortiz or even Shamrock would kill him. (I don't know this Puder guy ---> I'm a noob, what can I tell you?)
1. a finishing stroke; anything that effectually ends or settles
2. discharge or release from life.
3. a period of retirement or inactivity.
