Wow, Frank Mir wants to face Brock Lesnar again more than we realized. The two-time UFC heavyweight champion (and two-time Lesnar adversary) recently told The Chronicle Journal that he is “not opposed to the idea” of becoming a professional wrestler, although he did clarify that he “can’t do a back flip or anything.”
Mir has never kept secret the fact that he wants revenge on Lesnar for the beating he took at Brock’s hands in their rematch. With Lesnar back in the WWE, maybe Mir realizes that his only chance at getting his paws on Brock again is for the two of them to work together in a squared circle.
But could Mir really be trusted to stick to the script and work collaboratively with his nemesis, should they meet up in the WWE? Daniel Puder taught us that MMA fighters can’t always be trusted to make pro wrestling superstars look good in the ring.
I’m smelling a screw job plan from Mir. Think, F-5 reversal into a rolling heel-hook for the tap. Then again, maybe Brock has enough new protective gear to keep him safe.
What do you say, ‘taters? Does Mir have what it takes to make it in professional wrestling? Surely some of his more extreme trash talk would find a welcome home in the WWE. Also, TRT exemptions wouldn’t be necessary, but he still couldn’t use a gun or knife, we’re assuming.
