Step back let a REAL Prowrestling fan through!!!
&gt;Tony Halme (the only Westerner I know who went from pro wrestling to MMA, not vice versa): 0-2-0
&gt;Ken Shamrock was a MMA turned prowrestler (and sometimes he ventures back and foth)
WRONG!!! Ken Shamrock was a Prowrestler before he went MMA he later RETURNED to Prowrestling and still wrestles in HWA with is owned by WWE.
Correct Sakuraba is a Prowrestler also (PRORESU as it is mostly spelled and pronounced in Japanese)
Now if you think that since the matches are choreographed (mostly in Mainstream some Indies still let the fur fly) that they are NOT athletic you would be WRONG. The bumps, throws, etc are REAL. They don't FAKE going throw a table. The training they got through is grueling (Stu Hart's DUNGEON is one of the best) Many Japanese Gyms train their wrestlers in MA such as the Takada Dojo. These guys ARE tough.
Now most Prowreslters that come up have cut their teeth in Japan where they are more fanatical than Americans. The PANCRASE and Shoot events came from PRORESU and several westeners have tried their hand in that. (Although this is were many decide to go for more money and stay in Prowrestling than to be a fighter)
But by all means if you think Prowrestlers are pushovers go up and slap the Undertaker!!!!
Oh and when Angle and Brock met the first thing Angle did was challenge him to a match. Angle would kick his ass!!!! Look for him to take more gold in the next olympics.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

It would be very interesting to see Brock Lesner fight, I think he would do very well.
