Originally posted by CerebusI'm also shocked at Santino's background with him being a total joke wrestler now. He could probably 'fer reals' take out a third of the locker room.
Being an MMA fighter and being a good MMA fighter are not the same thing. My uncle is an MMA promoter and I'm fairly sure I could have taken a few of those guys despite my minimal amount of training.
I know nothing about Santino's MMA career, other than Wikipedia says he fought in Japan, but I'll point out that Giant Silva was also an MMA fighter with a record of 2W, 6L. (Although Silva did defeat Akebono in his last match, so I suppose that means he's a better giant than The Big Show.)
The times are worked. I wouldn't worry about it too much. And besides, I'd expect the Rumble to go long overall. I don't see Lashley, Batista or Cena going 30 minutes in their matches or anything by any stretch.
