As a close follower of both mixed martial arts and pro wrestling, I'll take full advantage of any chance I have of integrating the two combat sports promotions.
Last week, I discussed the pros of bringing in Tito Ortiz, fully supporting the UFC star's potential in a WWE ring.
With Brock Lesnar returning to the WWE and several other MMA talents either expressing interest or demonstrating skills that would be critical to success in the pro wrestling arena, perhaps the WWE should take a handful of calculated risks to bring in mixed martial artists.
The WWE's recent initiative of bringing in non-athletic models and training them as Divas has clearly fallen flat in almost every category except the eye-candy department.
However, bringing in elite athletes with a proven background of promoting themselves and selling a pay-per-view could prove to pay some serious dividends for the WWE while giving fans something new.
