I have an update to the story posted in the Wrestling Observer newsletter about the former UFC fighter that is training at the WWE Performance Center. WrestlingNews.co was told that the UFC star that is training at the WWE Performance Center is Stephan Bonnar. Bonnar is a lifelong WWE fan and has trained with Dave Batista in the past. Bonnar attended Monday Night Raw at the Staples Center a few months ago.
As noted in the Wrestling Observer newsletter, he does have the look that they like but his age (he’s 37) may work against him. Bonnar was the first runner up on the first season of The Ultimate Fighter and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. He retired from UFC in 2012 after his loss to Anderson Silva. Bonnar tested positive for Drostanolone after the fight with Silva.
