Default Bob Sapp Mania!

Here's something interesting from the Wrestling Observer:

Bob Sapp broke one of the oldest traditions in Japanese wrestling by being named Pro Wrestling MVP in the media balloting held earlier today.

Sapp becomes the first foreign wrestler to ever win the award in the 29-year history of the balloting. Sapp also won the award while participating in only two of what would be called pro wrestling matches in many people's eyes all year.


He's bigger than Shrek!

The japanese love him. Although I wish they'd make a Superheavyweight division for him to fight mma in... I think he's great for the pro wrestling world.

OK, but do you think the same for the MMA world?
I prefer an equanimous fighter (Mezger, Nogueira,...) than a muscle mass as Sapp (of course, the last is more spectacular)

True Piedra, as you say , this man is a show to attract the audience, of course, do you think this "new" audience would like a Sakurai, Uno or Rizzo fight?
I preffer attract the people with great fights like Silva vs Mezger or Nog vs Henderson...

I would say if you show a brutal fight of Sapp, the new audience will have the hope of see all MMa fights like this, not a fight with fighters like Pulver or Din Thomas
