You know neither of these guys look very 'legit' to me. They neither one have a good look as far as kicking ass goes... except well... the guy on top is Josh Barnett, and can kick the shit out of just about anyone he wants to (except Mirko Filipovic). (Also BTW Barnett is also a big mark for Ronda Rousey.)

So, yeah, I know WWE has an image they want to maintain, and I'm sure it's a real concern and all that crap, but someone needs to call them on their bullshit there, cause... Josh Barnett dude, Josh Barnett.

Kassius Ohno would get over just fine in the WWE. Whatever.

Except MMA is MMA and wrestling is wrestling and they're two different things.

Ughhh, I wish people would stop defending him with this bullshit.

Josh Barnett doesn't need and isn't expected to look in great shape, a wrestler is. Besides, Barnett is an established fighter (whos always looked tubby) and Ohno is a fucking no mark bum. He has no stroke to get fat and get away with it.

My point though, is that IF, he is as good as people like to say he is, then there is no good reason to say your look is the reason we are not going to push you. Josh Barnett is a pro-wrestler too, just FYI. He is very proud of his wrestling background and career. The whole idea people are pushing these days is that guys like Bryan andPunk aren't the atypical wrestler of yesteryear. IF Ohno is so good like people say, then the argument about his look is asinine.

If you can't buy AJ beating Divas because she's so small, how the hell would you buy a guy like that beating all these super-fit, chiselled out of stone guys in 30 minute matches?

Because she has no muscle and weighs 95 pounds and is no technician.

Oh no is supposedly good at everything he does but looks like average Joe. I have yet to see Ohno in a match to see how good or not he really is, but my point is that his physique, if it really is the only thing holding him back like everyone says, is a shitty excuse because they are pushing people in their own company who are outside the box characters already and guys like Barnett are successful in both pro-wrestling and mma.

If Barnett is a successful pro wrestler already I think Ohno has already made it to the big time and some.

It's like JTB said earlier, guys like Punk and Bryan aren't ripped, they're not big, but they're clearly fit guys and there's no reason to believe (in Punk's case, at least) that they wouldn't beat your ass. Ohno looks like a homeless guy who's way too good at panhandling.

Barnett has done well in New Japan. I'm not saying he's big-time, but he was more than able to pay his bills doing wrestling. If you can support yourself as a wrestler, then you're successful.

The only people who are really talking about how great he is are the same people who think a good looking headlock is "talent".

He has nothing besides "ring technician" skills, and it's proven that this is only a small part of the skills needed to be a good wrestler. He's not in Japan, he'll need to develop other skills to be a great wrestler.

Also, his heat comes from the fact that he refuses to improve it, rather than the fact that he doesn't have a good physique. It's not his flab, but that he's missed workouts and was generally lazy. Which is deserved if he gets punished for that.

Nah. I like Chris Hero because of the way he looks and he was doing shit like hand stands on the top rope and flippy shit. I mean granted the great Larry Sweeney being his manager probably helped him a lot to get over with me but still. Matches like this one with Eddie Kingston are a big part of why I like him so much...
