Pro Wrestling Frank Mir is a madman. With Phil Baroni as his manager there is no limit to the pro wrestler shooter version of Frank Mir.
So Mir made his pro wrestling debut yesterday (Apr. 4) in New York City. Mir was booked for UFC legend Dan Severn at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport event. And yes, that is former UFC champion Josh Barnett who help organize, promote, and headlined the card on Thursday afternoon.
Let’s also remind you Phil Baroni was there doing all different kinds of Phil Baroni things.
Which brings everything back full circle to former UFC heavyweight champion, Mir, wrestling in a sleeveless tee and tapping out folks.
Bloodsport was focused on shoot style, strong style Japanese way of pro wrestling. The promotion also removed the ring ropes and turnbuckles, which promoted a 100% grappling/striking style of pro wrestling matches.
Mir won his match very quickly, too quikly….put some respect on beast’s name and his manly mustache.
Welp, that didn't last long. Frank Mir taps Dan Severn with a heel hook, then proceeds to call out Brock Lesnar. And Phil Baroni's celebrating with him. 😂 #JBBloodsport #Bloodsport pic.twitter.com/TbtyY58bJC

Then Mir got on the mic to cut a promo. A very real promo with real words and Mir pretty much losing his mind.

“Yes, I’m getting into this so I can face Brock. I couldn’t make him the first Octagon-related death, but maybe I can make him the first one in the ring.”
Come again now? This got really dark, really fast. Heel Mir has no chill and no filter. Who is anyone kidding, if the UFC announced Mir vs. Lesnar Part Three tomorrow, the entire MMA community would hashtag Would Watch.
MMA is probably never getting a Mir vs. Lesnar fight and to be honest Frank vs. Brock is likely not going to happen in pro wrestling either.
The Fight Gods are cruel and unforgiving. For now just enjoy Mir doing pro wrestling things while learning on the job.
