UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz is reportedly training at the WWE Performance Center. It appears as if Tito is indeed serious about starting a pro wrestling career as he spent all of last week at the WWE PC.
Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer is reporting that great things are being said about his work ethic and enthusiasm while training. One of the downsides to Tito training for a WWE career include his age (45) and his history with MMA injuries.
Ortiz does have a little but of pro wrestling experience as he made some appearances for TNA in 2005 and 2013.
Tito also spoke with Wrestlezone’s Kevin Kellam ahead of his fight against Alberto El Patron for Combate Americas. The MMA legend says he would entertain going to WWE, noting that it would be “tough as hell” but would be a great experience.
“I know it would really test my balls and see how big they truly were. Those guys the size of Brock Lesnar. I mean Braun Strowman and those guys are stuck. They’re huge, but my technique, my wrestling skills my submission skills, my striking skills. Add on a little bit of pressure inside of it because I’ve done a lot of it myself. I don’t know. I’m not sure if these guys can hang with me,” Ortiz said, “let alone me hang with them. You never know though is just one of those things is up in the air and I’ll make them let them make those decisions but it’s it is open in my mind that’s for sure.”
