Hurt is right. This has been rather common in Japan for a while. Japanese "professional wrestlers" like Kazushi Sakuraba and Daijiro Matsui do this sort of stuff, not TNA styled acrobatics.
Personally I'd just like the WWE to run out of money and die already.

Whats funny is when the wrestlers do the "Grimace and Freekout" before muscling out of a submision that would have maimed them in a non-complinat environment.
Or When one wrestler gets a, say, Kimura, and then cranks on it to make the other guy 'hurt', and then releases it and goes for a body slam or some shitt.
THe only positive development in wrestling in the last decade was the addition of Porn Chicks to cut the overwhelming homoeroticsm."You know what I like about you, William? You like guns AND meditation."

I would like to see one of the American dumb ass wrestlers attempt to do MMA, I know one brickhead who thought his "skills" were enough to survive MMA.. Yeah like Bam Bam Bigelow was going to actually do something to Kimo Leopoldo.. The only real man who gave Royce a run for his money in the early NHB/Style vs Style UFC's.
American Pro Wrestling is a total disgrace and I wish it would just die already.. But that will never happen.. As long as there are Rednecks and Inbreed Hick's American Pro Wrestling will always live up.

I think that WWE feels threatened by the sport of MMA. I think we'll probably see more MMA type moves in the future from the WWE.

i have seen things that resemble MMA, but this is the first time i have seen anyone PULLING GUARD in a wrestling match. the announcer goes on to say that its an effective move in jiu jitsu...

Vinve is no dummy he can see and recognize a trend. He brought Shamrock and Severn in the first time around when the UFC made its initial splash.
At some point he is going to offer a lot of money to someone like a Tito or what not who may be near the end of their active fighting career to come in and do a MMA VS WWE type fued with Angle.
I would take bets that Shamrock will be back in the WWE in the next couple years.
You also have gus like Puder and O'Haire formerly of the WWE competing in MMA. IF Either can make a name they'll be offered some $$$ to come back as well.

The WWE is not going to die sadly. What it will do, as it's done countless times, is go into a cycle of remission where no one gives a crap about it. And when we think it's gone, it will return, ready to wreck the credibility of MMA.
