WWE Opinion: 5 MMA Stars Vince McMahon Would Love to Have in WWE

Discussing pro wrestling and mixed martial arts in the same conversation is liable to create screams of uproar from both camps in this day and age.

From my own experiences with chums who share my passion for MMA, when pro wrestling is introduced into the fold it can turn the closest of friendships into the messiest of divorces.

The UFC and WWE are comprehensively different companies in terms of the action they offer, but that doesn't mean there aren't WWE superstars or mixed martial artists who haven't attempted careers in both the Octagon and the wrestling ring. 

Earlier this year, both companies made the headlines when Brock Lesnar left the Zuffa promotion and returned to Vince McMahon's organisation after eight years away.

While Lesnar is the most high-profile name to switch between the UFC and WWE; Ken Shamrock, Bobby Lashley, Dave Bautista, Kurt Angle and Dan Severn are all names that have had success of varying degree in both companies.

Here, I'll take a look at the stars of the MMA World who WWE chairman Vince McMahon would surely love to have in his company.

For the record, I'm not doolally and I realise the chances of these slides coming to fruition are impossible at best, but I hope you'll see the potential in the transferable skills of these fighters who I believe could shine in WWE.
