Israel Adesanya got a lot of attention from WWE fans and superstars due to his unique entrance at UFC 276 this past Saturday. Adesanya came to the octagon by portraying the dead man character. He was entered with The Undertaker’s iconic theme song. Adesanya wore a Taker’s trademarked hat. He also had an urn in his hand, and his opponent’s name was written on it.
Israel Adesanya retained his Middleweight Championship by defeating Jared Cannonier in a unanimous decision. After the fight, Adesanya told BT Sports that he would definitely try to come to WWE.
“Definitely, that’s something I’ll try my hand at later on. Just for fun. I’m not saying it’s going to be a full-time job, but I’m definitely going to jump in the WWE or something along that line, just for the entertainment factor. I grew up, jumping off the couch, broke my arm doing shooting stars.”
Many MMA athletes have come to WWE after their MMA career and succeeded. For example, Ronda Rousey and Riddle. Adesanya could become a major superstar in WWE. However, he has a lot of potential in UFC. The Undertaker also praised his works by saying, “He’s not only a great fighter, he’s an awesome entertainer as well.”
