He has a plan. There are all kinds of wrestlers who have come from another sport. This has been the case for years and it will likely continue to be the case for as long as wrestling is around. In modern times, mixed martial arts has become more prevalent as a feeder system to wrestling and now another top mixed martial artist seems interested in at least dabbling in wrestling.
On Saturday, UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya made an entrance inspired by the Undertaker. In an interview with BT Sports, Adesanya said that he would be interested in working with WWE, or some other promotion at some point. Adesanya said that it is something he would like to do for fun rather than as a full time job. Adesanya revealed that he once broke his arm jumping off the couch trying to do a shooting star. There is no word on when Adesanya would want to try wrestling or where it would be.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing there you can imagine WWE or AEW lining up to get Adesanya to appear whenever he likes. I don’t know how much of a future he would have in wrestling but even an appearance is better than nothing. He is a major star in mixed martial arts and any major promotion would love to have that kind of appeal around, even if it is for a short time.
What do you think of Adesanya? How would he fit in wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
