There is a vast array of comparisons to be made between MMA and professional wrestling. Musclebound tough guys beating each other up, in ring rivalries developing, crazy owners and executives with big mouths and money to spare, etc.
With the similarities so evident, it was inevitable that people begin bouncing from sport to sport. With talks of the WWE's Dave Batista making the jump to MMA, I began to wonder, "Haven't I seen this happen before?" Oh, and indeed I have; we all have. From Kazuyuki Fujita to Don Frye, there is a deep history of pro-wrestlers in MMA and vice versa.
These men's primary objective in life have been to satiate society's longing for violence and competition. In their quest to do so, some have triumphed while others have stumbled. This list shows the best of both world's.
From the WWE to the UFC, TNA to Strikeforce, NJPW to DREAM, and every other combination you can muster up, we'll take a look at who was the best, who was the worst, and who we completely forgot about.
