I think there are certain types of guys who need to be punched in the face and taste blood. I’ve always been a fan of MMA. I’ve been wrestling since I was 5 years old. It’s awesome to be with Bellator. They’re really going to put 100 percent towards it.”

This will give him a good opportunity to compete in Bellator's Heavyweight grand prix tournament

I think Jake will expose new fans to Bellator from his previous run with WWE and he will be given every opportunity to prove that he’s the real deal inside the cage.”
