It wouldn’t be the first to go from UFC to WWE, but now the ex-UFC champion is currently training at the WWE Performance Center according to Dave Meltzer. Indeed, Ortiz started his training at the beginner level at WWE school in Orlando, Florida in order to potentially start a career in professional wrestling.
On the other hand, it should not be forgotten that Ortiz is already 45 years old and has already had to undergo an operation on the vertebrae of his neck. His transition to wrestling will, therefore, be more complicated than Ronda Rousey or Cain Velasquez who started out younger.
We must not forget that Ortiz already participated in TNA at the time when he made some spots to promote MMA and wrestling on SpikeTV in the United States, the field of wrestling is therefore not 100% new to him. Moreover, in 2012, he had already expressed in an interview for ESPN that he had an interest in WWE.
This interest seems to have intensified today and at the moment it is far too early to know if we will have the debut of Tito Ortiz on the WWE screen soon as it is still in the training stage and training.
