Shonie Carter eyes WWE

by Ben Fowlkes | source:

"I've had my great adventures," Carter told MMA Fighting. "I went to Tiananmen Square, just because I was there. I was on the Great Wall before I knew ya'll. You know? I fought in Tokyo. I wrestled a bear in Russia. It's been beautiful."

But now it's over, according to Carter. After a decision loss to Jeremy Knafo in Tel Aviv, Israel earlier this month, "Mr. International" decided to hang up the gloves. So he says. Now he has a new venture in mind.

"I want to go to the WWE," Carter said. "I've talked to CM Punk about it. He works out at my gym. ...I'm coming to acknowledge the mid-life crisis that a lot of guys go through where they get a Corvette and a hot blonde girlfriend with big boobs. I've just decided to do the WWE."

And before you ask, yes, he's serious. At least he claims he is, though with Carter it's sometimes difficult to tell what's sincere and what's schtick. Still, this is one he's not backing away from. At 38 years old, Shonie Carter wants to become a pro wrestler. He even has a stage name picked out.

WWE has a long way to go before they ever get any old fans back.  Some of these guys aren't a bad choice tho, Shonie seems perfect for the WWE, he needs to be the new Dr of Style "Slick"  he as Roy Nelson's manager = unstoppable.  Pimp cane as a weapon.

That would have potential if they got the right guys to do it.

 Between Roy Nelson, Shone Carter, "Rampage" Jackson, and Matt Mitrione there have seemingly been a number of fighters recently connected to rumors of a future in WWE. Makes me wonder if the McMahons are tipping their hand on a forthcoming endeavor.

 the word legend gets thrown around too much in this sport and ur calling a guy who went like 1-1 in the ufc or 1-2 or something like that a ufc legend? so is michael bisping a ufc legend, dan hardy? tank abbott?

 I thought pro wrestling should have been his calling all along. Just like Mark Kerr.
