WWE Considering UFC-Style Shows, Stars Shoot Training, Swagger
– Jack Swagger’s eagle mascot on SmackDown may be Jamie Noble. Noble still travels with the SmackDown roster as an agent.
– Raw stars Yoshi Tatsu and David Hart Smith recently visited Billy Robinson in Little Rock, Arkansas to do some shoot training. Robinson is high on Smith and said if he had two straight years of training then he could be successful in UFC.
– Based on the success UFC has had promoting the upcoming Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez fight and the recent Rashad Evans vs. Rampage Jackson fight, WWE is strongly discussing UFC-style primetime hype shows for the top match or two at next year’s WrestleMania 27.
