WWF Brawl For All 1998 was a kind of MMA / Toughman / Boxing tournament between the pro wrestlers. I really enjoys to see these big pro wrestlers slugging each other FOR REAL with real KO.
I really loved it but the vast majority of WWE fans hated it. The tournament is seen as a failure. I have to admit that it would have been a lot better if there weren't any takedowns allowed. It should have been a straight Toughman / Boxing contest. Try to shoot on a guy with boxing gloves on doesn't make sense!?!
