How do WWE wrestlers make it into UFC?
 
WWE is scripted. the fights are all bootleg and they aren't trained for real fighting. you see ken shamrock getting hit once in wwe then getting rocked. then when he comes to ufc all of a sudden he can take a flurry of combinations. how is this possible? same goes with brock lesnar, he even beat a washed up randy couture. last, how are these guys even considered wrestlers? comparing WWE to olympic wrestling, totally different.

I don't understand the jist of what you're saying and it seems that you've answered your own questions multiple times.

But WWE wrestlers with an actual Martial Art background usually would be able to make a good transition into MMA. Brock Lesner, and Bobby Lashley are WWE wrestlers with actual amateur wrestling backgrounds. Ken Shamrock did Martial Arts before he did wrestling.

You know what I don't get? I don't get how WWE is called PRO wrestling when REAL wrestling is called amateur wrestling... what a joke.

There actually used to be a real wrestling league called RPW, or, RealProWrestling.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Pro_Wrestling

It only lasted 2 seasons, because I guess not enough people really cared about it. I guess the modern American would rather considered Professional wrestling as a Soap Opera where men wear a colorful pants, fake punch each other, and the women are basically depicted as sex tools, rather than professional athletes.

The one thing people then to forget is although wwe is fake/scripted, those guys are athletes. Brock Lesnar is an athletic specimen who happens to have a amateur wrestling background.

Its like this take a guy like John Cena who is a beast in the weight room can bench 400-500 pounds. Now if he trained in mma he could be good. If some of these guys were not "wrestlers" and strictly focused on MMA they could be good.

Imagine If kurt angle or shelton benjamin never wrestler in the wwe and go into mma.

just because you can bench more than others doesn't mean you can beat a fighter that has more refined techniques as the other guy. besides lifting weight only helps you gas out faster

False. He said he was athletic, not that he was stronger then everybody. I am 165 lbs and athletic and I guarantee Brock Lesnar has a better vertical jump, and can run an 100M dash faster than me. Dude is a freak.
