UFC Hall of Famer visits WWE Performance Centre
UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz was recently at the WWE Performance Center and rumors soon spread that he was joining WWE. PWInsider now have a report on it and claim that it was just a trial to test the waters.
PWInsider.com is told Ortiz's visit was something of an introductory meeting spread out over several days so Ortiz, a lifelong pro wrestling fan, and WWE could feel each other out and see if the two sides might be able to work together down the line. Ortiz did some pro wrestling training and familiarized himself with the WWE system while there. We are told it was very much a "let's feel each other out" sort of situation.
Ortiz had spoken to PWInsider earlier about a possible move to WWE. The UFC Hall of Famer claimed that he is looking for a match with the likes of Cain Velasquez or Brock Lesnar, who also appeared in MMA.
You know, I've seen that Cain Velasquez is taking the step over to develop pro wrestling, so that would be a good one. Or even someone like Brock Lesnar would be another good one, and vice versa. You come over here, I'd go over there. And you know, whatever they have for my future. I'm willing to work hard and just show that hard work pays off and just dedicate myself to the fight ahead of me.
