What If the WWE Was More Like UFC?

What would the WWE be like if it was more like the UFC than a male version of Young and the Restless?

Really, think about it. Imagine a world where the WWE reigned supreme as the hard nosed brawling show that the UFC is. Half of the stars wouldn't even make it through one night.

Put Rey Mysterio in the ring with Brock Lesnar, what would you think would happen? The man would literally kill him. Bring some reality to the WWE and half of the superstars would run to their mommies.

I would enjoy seeing an infusion of real-time fighting in the WWE. It would really bring me back as a solid viewer. Admittedly that shows how weak the talent on the WWE really is. Some of the wrestlers in the WWE might actually be able to hang with these boys, but the majority are just weak man, just plain weak.

I can see The Undertaker, Batista, Kane, Triple H, The Big Show, C.M. Punk, and Jeff Hardy mixing it up with the UFC roster in real-time fighting and making some head way.

The rest of the roster can't and will never match up. At the first sign of blood they would panic and tap like a bunch of wussies.

Simply my point is take out the garbage talent that they have in the WWE, and bring in some real fighters, like Brock Lesnar, Frank Mir, Lyoto Machida, put them through acting classes and let them fight for real and then the WWE will become supreme.

WWE entertainment has become so weak that they actually have competition with a small time organization like TNA.

This is totally ridiculous, the WWE has always been fake but back in the day they actually had wrestlers that would put their bodies on the line so the fans could have a hardcore show.

Now, it has become too much about glamour, pop-culture, and children's humour.

People who watched the WWE in the 90's have matured a bit from the WWE's childish ways and became loyal UFC, and MMA viewers and have no interest in going back.

All I'm saying is bring in some more realism and better action and the rest will fall into place. I feel that the WWE is damaging the American psyche and that the real fighters should come in and clean house.
