I'm gonna get negged to hell for this but are you being deliberately awkward? Every thread you start is a question you can easily google the answer for, some are even common knowledge and yet when you get an answer you have another question to take the thread on a totally unnecessary tangent.

Was the new info you learned that WWE is fake and taking a shot in the WWE is not the same as taking a real punch?

Hmmm.... now, on to another question....

Why is it when I am in a gun battle I run out of ammo after only 11 shots? Mel Gibson fired off 36 rounds using the same gun I had with out reloading??? I DONT GET IT~

...Personally, I don't think WWE wrestlers have much of any chance in MMA. Lesnar was the only exception because of his amazing athleticism but that only got Brock so far. When it came to the other aspects of MMA, Lesnar fell short, especially in the striking. Bobby Lashley hasn't faired well and he will take a nasty beating or submission when he faces the great Fedor. I don't see any WWE guy getting nowhere near as far as Lesnar did...

The WWE pulls most of it's performers from amatuer wrestlers and 'amatuer' football players. They ARE trained athletes. Trained athletes working as stuntmen.

But also, how many of them actually make it. Very few. But Kurt Angel, to pick a high profile example, really IS an Olympic gold medalist in wrestling. Would it be such a shock if an elite wrestler has mma success?

Team Angle would have been badass. Charlie Haas, Shelton Benjamin and Kurt Angle all would have been excellent MMA fighters had they gone that way instead of to Pro Wrestling.
