WWE Executive Trying To Lure Potential MMA Fighters & Hockey Players Into Pro Wrestling

6

WWE executive Gerald Brisco has recently been attempting to recruit athletes who would normally pursue a career in mixed-martial-arts, with the idea that they can have a longer career and make better money if they choose professional wrestling.

Additionally, Brisco has been telling these athletes — most of whom are amateur wrestlers with a lot of potential — that they can follow the same path as Brock Lesnar by using the success that they achieve in the world of pro wrestling to transition into an instantly successful and lucrative MMA career.

Brisco has also been looking at pursuing hockey players from Canada who are considered brawlers with a similar approach.
