During an interview with Sportskaeda, Bobby Lashley revealed that he believes several WWE stars could easily make the transition into MMA. Here’s what he had to say:
I wouldn’t say just one person. I mean, hell, I was just talking to somebody yesterday about it because there is, of course, weight classes. I say, the one thing in wrestling is if you’re athletic and you have some kind of martial arts background, it will get you a long ways. I think someone like Shelton Benjamin can definitely do it.
[Baron] Corbin! I held mitts for him and I was like, ‘Dang, he has hands.’ He could do it. He would need to get his wrestling down but he could do it. I don’t know who else would want to do it. Chad Gable, little Shorty G! He has some Greco experience and Greco experience will take you a long ways.
Hell, I don’t know, go down the roster. Cesaro, I think he might be able to do something too. I don’t know if he has a background in athletics but he’s a very athletic person.
Drew! [McIntyre] – but he might end up biting somebody’s head off and getting thrown in jail.
But it is a possibility. Anybody can fight, man.
