After a recent announcement of retirement. The 38 year-old UFC veteran, Shonie ‘Mr. Wonderful’ Carter has expressed a desire to join the world of professional wrestling.

“I want to go to the WWE,” Carter said. “I’ve talked to CM Punk about it. He works out at my gym. …I’m coming to acknowledge the mid-life crisis that a lot of guys go through where they get a Corvette and a hot blonde girlfriend with big boobs. I’ve just decided to do the WWE.”

Yes, the charismatic ‘Mr. Wonderful’ may joke and say things for shock value, but Carter says this is something he really wants and we may just see the former MMA star jumping into the WWE ring very soon.
