Dan “The Beast” Severn Just Keeps On Tickin’

They don’t get much more legendary than Dan “The Beast” Severn (left). Seriously, I could have asked Severn eight hours worth of questions with regards to his MMA and pro wrestling careers but instead I settled on forty minutes. And, boy, did we cover a lot:

* Why he continues to fight

* When he expects to retire for good

* His thoughts on the current MMA scene

* Did he ever think the sport would become so popular

* The success of so many amateur wrestlers in MMA

* Lesnar-Coleman predictions

* Getting stripped of the NWA title prior to the first TNA show

* The biggest regret of his career

* His time in the WWF/E

It’s not often that you get to speak to a legend who has excelled in wrestling and MMA so it was obviously a great thrill to chat with “The Beast.”

    Dan is a class act! The UFC needs to address the trailblazers and make sure they are taken care of! Dana White would note have a job if it weren’t for guys like Dan.
    Thanks Dan for taking the risks you did!

  3. Can I simply say what a relief to discover somebody who genuinely understands what they
    are talking about online. You actually realize how to bring
    an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people
    really need to look at this and understand this side of the
    story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular
    since you most certainly possess the gift.
