The greatest trick the Nintendo Entertainment System ever played was convincing you that ‘King Slender’ from their ‘Pro Wrestling’ game wasn’t modeled after Bas Rutten. Perhaps it was Bas Rutten who modeled his Pancrase outfit after the eight-bit character. Alternatively, there is a small probability that Bas Rutten mastered the technology of traveling through time, and traversed our universe only to find that Nintendo’s ‘King Slender’ was the perfect blueprint to originate an MMA career from. All of those theories are probably incorrect, but we will stand by them until the day we die.
At the tender age of 47, Bas Rutten still looks better with his shirt off than you do with your shirt on. That’s just an existential fact that you will realize by the end of this video, which depicts what would happen if the WWE went up against UFC. All of this is hypothetical, of course.
