Tim Sylvia: “I think Tito, Rampage, King Mo, and I would make for one hell of a bad ass team in TNA”

Is former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia close to joining Tito Ortiz, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, and King Mo on TNA Wrestling?

Nothing official, but the 37 year old Maine-iac has been throwing the idea around as of late. The 6’8”, near 300 lb. Sylvia took to Facebook to ask, “So how many of my fans want to see me on TNA impact?” and adding “Wrestling is for fun I do it in Japan and have a blast. It would not tarnish anything.”

Yes, Sylvia has made wrestling appearances in Japan and with his sheer size, charisma, and name recognition; why not make a TNA run? As is the case with Ortiz, Jackson, and King Mo, we here at MMADIRT.com love the idea and feel that Sylvia would fit in well in the Bellator Heavyweight ranks as well for that matter….

Regardless, the idea is certainly on his mind as he pointed out, I think Tito, Rampage, King Mo, and I would make for one hell of a bad ass team in TNA. Nobody could stop us and if they did we could just kick their asses in the back for real.
