Long-time pro-wrestling fans remember Bart Gunn (who worked under the ring name of Mike Barton in All Japan & New Japan) getting destroyed by Eric “Butterbean” Esch in the infamous “Brawl For All” shoot tournament that the WWF ran. Butterbean faced Gunn (the tournament winner) at WrestleMania XV, with Esch destroying his opponent.

On Saturday night, Mike Barton got partial revenge by gaining a victory over Cabbage Correira in Hawaii in an MMA fight. He won the fight by referee/doctor stoppage in R1.

    What the hell is Butterbean thinking? He lost to Sudo in MMA for Pete’s sake. Stick to boxing or pro-wrestling.

  2. Royal B. says:

    um…Zach. I thought he fought Cabbage?

  3. Zach Arnold says:

    Thanks for catching the error. I got ahead of myself, as Barton wants a fight with Butterbean. Thanks.

  4. Al Yu says:

    Wesly “The Cannon” Correira!

  5. HijoDelOso says:

    Cabbage can’t seem to buy a break these days. Too bad really, because with 2 wins he could be in a title match for the UFC heavyweight belt. Back to the drawing board for Cabbage.
