Saenchai's Influence Even Bleeds Over into WWE

The influence of Saenchai is almost impossible to ignore at this point. Like we talked about before, he called out UFC megastar Conor McGregor in a fight that has real fight fans salivating at just the thought, and now? Well, the famous Saenchai one-handed cartwheel kick has made its way to professional wrestling. We've seen American muay thai fighters do the move before, but it definitely was within their lexicon. What fighter wouldn't look at Saenchai as a potential hero? 

But in pro wrestling? That's kinda weird, right? The other night WWE's own Shane McMahon tweeted out some training footage from the Wat in New York with Phil Nurse. What exactly did he tweet? Himself doing the "Saenchai Kick."

Shane McMahon is no stranger to to the world of professional fighting and was even attempting to buy into the UFC at one point. Hell, he tried to convince his father to have the WWE build its own MMA promotion, which never came to fruition because Vince didn't see the point in building stars that he couldn't control the destiny for. Shane McMahon is scheduled to appear at this year's Wrestlemania squaring against WWE legend the Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match and, uh, Shane will probably do this kick as well as fall from a really, really high place.


Saenchai Calling Out Conor McGregor? Sure, Why Not.

Arguing against Saenchai being one of the all-time greats in muay thai is pretty much wasting your time at this point. He's earned his spot and wowed enough audiences worldwide to have earned his spot at the top and now it looks like Saenchai is trying to get paid. The biggest payday in combat sports outside of fighting Floyd Mayweather right now? It's probably fighting UFC's Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor. 

McGregor is the rare pairing of a guy who can talk and captivate audiences on top of a guy with some real knock out power to back up that talk. His next fight is against Nate Diaz, which seems to have MMA fans all hot-and-bothered, but this week Saenchai decided to toss his name into the hat for the McGregor games as well. Saenchai says that he's accomplished plenty in muay thai and is looking for a new challenge.

Dear god, imagine Saenchai annihilating dudes in the UFC?
