Fantasy Pro Wrestling Shoot Fights....
Pro Wrestling may be "predetermined", but there are some seriously tough professional wrestlers who can legitimately go.
My personal belief is that had MMA come along 20 years ago in North America, alot of the toughest wrestlers would've chosen mixed martial arts to make their living, for the combination of athleticism and legitimate badassedness would be perfect for the MMA world.
I thought I'd start a fantasy thread about all of the "DREAM FIGHTS" involving Pro Wrestlers vs. Pro Wrestlers in a real life MMA bout or maybe (or more of a straight SHOOT) and determine who would really be the toughest, who we'll consider are all in their prime.
I've basically booked the guys I consider the most legit at the top and scaled down, but I think any of these wrestlers could've been very promising in MMA.
Kurt Angle vs. "Dr. Death" Steve Williams
Undertaker vs. Brusier Brody
Meng vs. Paul Orndorff
Ron Simmons vs. Scott Norton
Bill Watts vs. Harley Race
Stan Hansen vs. Bad News Brown
Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Fit Finlay
Dave Schults vs. Ken Patera

Karl Gotch vs. Billy Robinson
and for a "Legendary" bout:
