Sergio Non at USA Today put together a great piece listing the top ten pro wrestlers who have impacted mixed martial arts. And no, the list doesn’t include Brock Lesnar.
The top five:
- Kazushi Sakuraba
- Ken Shamrock
- Masakatsu Funaki
- Akira Maeda
- Dan Severn
Many people, myself included, tend to forget that mixed martial arts and pro wrestling are deeply tied together going back to the beginning of the sport.
