Pro-Wrestling and MMA
 
i found this article kinda interesting when i was looking for MMA fighters that have either competed in pro-wrestling or wrestlers who came to mma

i knew about ones like tank abbott, dan servern, ken shamrock, and barnett, but i was unaware of some of the people behind MMA being pro-wrestlers (like the president of pride)

Japan pro wrestling is a lot more serious and much more physical. When I was a pro wrestler I had a match with a guy from Japan and they do not hold anything back.

i watched some crazy matches from japan that made hardcore matches from ECW look tame, alot of japan wrestling reminds me of old wrestling from early WWF or pre-WWF when the steel cage matches where made out of 2inch steel pipes, and no rules ment ballbats and logging chains :laugh:

The stuff you watched was probably the FMW or something similar. It is not respected as much as legitamt pro wrestling like the stuff the guys the article named did. I like the old school stuff much more. Less soap opera and more stories being told in the ring.
