    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    It's a good thing I read this thread. I was going to catch a rerun as I thought Holyfield's fight might be like the aforementioned Brawl for All. I still remember the finals with Butterbean and how Bart Gunn was crushed. Now I won't bother.

    MMA hasn't been one consistent thing for any three consecutive years since 1993. Angle could have gotten into MMA, but by the time he was ready to go, MMA looked like it was on its last legs and rasslin' was huge. I was in college from 1996-2000 and when I wanted to watch MMA I was more or less on my own. But you could walk down the hall and not miss the pro rasslin' shows because everyone was watching the same thing with the door open. Angle went where the money and fame were.

    I don't know that he would have made it big in MMA (on paper, he looks that way) but I don't really blame him for going the WWF route. It's not what I would like to watch him do, but a lot of people did want to watch it and were willing to pay out the nose.

    However, I guess I underestimated how much Holyfield might need the money. I always thought Holyfield had **** You cash on hand.

    Did Angle stay in wrestling because he doesn't like getting punched in the face a whole bunch?
    He could get the money now...I'm not sure he has the background or inclination to adjust to full contact fighting.

    Watching Holyfield fight James Tony was a slightly depressing thing for me... All Evander seemed to do was lead with his head (more than normal) and get hit a lot. I hope he can get some
    $ in WWE.

    Angle has serious neck issues so theres no way he could do MMA, he actually shouldnt even be doing wrestling. He is trying to bring in Brock LEsner from EliteXC because there is more money to be made in wrestling

    ah, I see...why then, is Angle said to have dissed chuck liddell...was that because there's no way he could be sanctioned to fight him ever because of the neck thing???
