With news that CM Punk will be walking out with Chael Sonnen for Sonnen's match with Mark Munoz, the topic of WWE wrestlers and MMA fighters seems to be coming up more.
Pro wrestling is looked down on by many fans of other sports, and that includes MMA fans. The men and women who compete in wrestling are viewed as actors and stunt people with no actual fighting ability who work in "fake" matches.
However, the WWE employs some people with real fighting backgrounds who could not only beat up most people, but could even take a run in the Octagon. They might even succeed on a serious level.
That is because wrestlers in the WWE not only have to be charismatic, they usually know a thing or two about technical wrestling.
So here are five people in the WWE who are young enough that if they switched over today, could win a fight in the UFC.
