#6 - Rusev

The 300+
The 300+ pound Bulgarian big man is incredibly agile

Before I talk about why I think Rusev could potentially do well in MMA, I would just like to say this - Rusev is one of my favourite overall talents on the roster today. He's being criminally underused at the moment, so WWE bookers, if you're reading this, which you're probably not...PUSH RUSEV.

Anyway, onto the actual reason why I'm supposed to be writing about Rusev.

First of all, just look at the man. Rusev is a man that I would absolutely never mess with. He's over 300 pounds of solid, unforgiving muscle, and his backgrounds in power-lifting and Muay Thai have made him explosively agile for his size. Sure, if he were to venture into the world of MMA, he would have to drop about 40 pounds, but I think he could pull that off with the right training regimen. And if he's already this nimble at over 300 pounds, imagine how dangerous he would be at a healthy 265.

Plus, he's already got experience competing barefoot. So that's something.
