The only difference here is that Kurt Angle who defeated well respected UFC veteran Matt Lindland to win the gold medal in the 1996 olympics,so Angle is on the level...He is a gold medalist grappler and Shamrock isn't the best Jiu-jitsu guy..Shamrock doesn't work well of his back anymore.So it would be interesting to say the least.Also I think they brought in a Sumo champ to have a sumo match with Big Show...not sure,and not sure if it was scripted.
Brawl for All was a bad idea... it made for boring television, that's why they never did it again. I couldn’t tell you if the Big Show sumo match was a work or not… mostly because I got up to take a leek during that bit.
I’d love to see Kurt Angle do a shoot fight but I doubt the WWE would want him to. With his history of injuries it wouldn’t be a fantastic idea.
Now lets get back to MMA.
