UFC or MMA may have disliked scripted endings. On the other hand, WWE fans over the years have tried justifying the legitimacy of professional wrestling. Regardless, there have been athletes who have switched over between the two sports.

However, UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal took it into his own hands to make the fans know the legitimacy of WWE. He took to Facebook and uploaded a reel, where a 300lbs man is seen performing a senton splash on his opponent. Masvidal uploaded the video on Facebook with the caption, ‘WWE Ain’t real?’

The landing seemed stiff and rough, which might have even led to an injury. WWE is a place where extremely dangerous moves are performed under severe scrutiny and supervision so that no unforeseen injury occurs.
