As we all know sometime in the next year Bellator Fighting Championships will be debuting on Spike-TV which will fill the void that the UFC left in late 2011. There has been many talks about Impact Wrestling and Bellator cross promoting and exchanging talent because they share the same network. It is no secret that MMA stars in the past have appeared and have participated in pro wrestling. The two that stand out the most are Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock. However what a lot of people don’t know is that quite a few wrestlers on the TNA roster have an MMA background.
It is well known that Kurt Angle has an MMA background and would love to have one fight before he retires. Others like RVD, Samoa Joe, and Kid Kash have legitimate MMA training. Having a partnership could open up the possibilities of getting Bobby Lashley back in the fold. I also could see Brock Lesnar, Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn being involved in this because they love both MMA and pro wrestling.
Whether the partnership happens or not remains to be seen but I think an MMA company and pro wrestling company having a partnership would be good for business. It would bring the audiences together, educated the fans about both products and have dream matches and dream fights you thought you might never see.
Keep staying tuned on this topic because I am sure there is more to come.
