| | Wrestlers could do MMA...maybe
It's not fair to say that no pro wrestlers would stand a chance in MMA. First, these guys are incredible athletes, as someone already astutely pointed out. Second, we don't know what skills they might possess. Granted, it would be ridiculous for someone to attempt to hit a Stone Cold Stunner or a piledriver in an MMA fight, and they'd likely pay dearly for their foolishness, but we don't know whether these guys are trained in "shoot" fighting outside of the ring. Al Snow, for example, has been involved in training guys for MMA fights in the past. Yes, based on the type of things we see pro wrestlers doing in the ring, it would seem extremely unlikely that they'd do well - but these guys are incredible athletes, and some of them likely have impressive skills that they don't showcase in the ring. Remember, unless people are absolute fanatics, they'll probably go where the money is, and, until fairly recently, pro wrestling looked a lot better than MMA as far as money goes. That said, it isn't tough to imagine that some of your better athletes would have migrated there instead of to MMA. The same could be said of boxers (actually, to a much greater extent). We don't know what they could be capable of - specially if they ever received legitimate MMA training. If Boxing and Pro Wrestling stopped existing tommorrow and all of the guys who are there now got dumped into MMA and started training for it legitimately, I think you might see some surprising champions a few years down the road.
