    Good for him. I’m not going to watch it, probably, but I hope he does well. Can’t imagine he’s going to be any less injured.

    He won’t be able to stay healthy. Pro wrestling is way worse on your body, except maybe your brain than MMA is. Unless they give him a favorable schedule where he only has tv appearances and performs a couple times a month, he will be hurt a lot.

    He most definitely will not be working anything resembling a full time schedule.

    He's gonna get that Brock Lesnar schedule. He won't be on the ride 300 times a year. In the next calendar year I bet he wrestles 7 times

    Don’t they have a strict wellness policy now? Do they test for HGH?

    Drug tests are for full time wrestlers.

    As a (former) wrestling fan: Cain looked absolutely old, injured and hobbled around looking like a shirtless guy from the crowd in a knee brace.

    The action sucked and I’m waiting to read he re-injured himself during his one move

    He’s gonna need a bunch of work and juice.

    As a MMA fan: good for Cain for getting paid.

    I hope they teach him how to lie better than he did after Francis knocked him the fuck out.

    We could have had Black Fedor; and Cain's busted overrated ass stole that from us.

    See you in hell, "Cain" – Hope by then you've grown a fucking personality, nerd.

    Cain has gotta be the best MMA guy to make the jump, right? Brock was a bigger draw, sure, but never a #1 guy. Shamrock was probably a bigger name, but never the fighter Cain was. Riddle and Lawlor were never top guys either. This is pretty interesting.

    though I guess Ronda would be comparable

    i think ronda lost way too much credibility before she got shit out the bottom of mma.
    cain could be great and from that clip he sure seems to be getting it down, but man for a guy that gets hurt as often as he did in MMA i can't help but think it's going to be worse in wrestling.

    I think Cain’s injuries were mostly attributed to training too hard, which shouldn’t be too big of an issue in WWE. He’ll have a limited schedule and won’t be wrestling the kinds of matches most guys do on account of his star power.

    As for Ronda, regardless of how she ended her career, she was the definitive #1 female in MMA for what, 5 years? But while most people thought he was proven the best in the world, he still came up short against JDS and Werdum. So while one can make the argument that Cain never achieved his potential, Ronda certainly did. Also, Ronda had a lot more drawing power than Cain ever did.

    Bear in mind, I say all that as a guy that couldn’t stand Ronda throughout her career.
