During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed former UFC star Tito Ortiz possibly doing matches for WWE. Here is what Meltzer said courtesy of WrestlingNews.co:
“Tito Ortiz is training to be a professional wrestler at the Performance Center… he was there all week and I heard great things about his work ethic [and] his enthusiasm.”
Ortiz, who is 45, has made wrestling appearances in the past with TNA/Impact Wrestling.
In a recent interview with WrestlingInc.com, Ortiz talked about being in talks with WWE back in 2003 but things didn’t work out:
“I was a polite, politically correct person outside of the cage as I always am and I think I didn’t catch their attention good enough. If I would have understood that it was a chance to get my foot in the door as a pro wrestler, I think I might have been a little more over the top with how my character likes to fight.”
