Daniel Puder busted on the scene on Tough Enough and with his MMA background and amateur wrestling, he seemed to have the credentials to become a big star. What happened? Was it ego? Was it that he tried to embarrass Kurt Angle on TV by applying a Kimura? Why havent we seen him in UFC?

In WWE, he didn't make it because WWE was expecting him to get the WWE style wrestling down right away and appear on TV right away as a regular. He was not progressing at the pace WWE had expected, which I think was only a couple months.

Puder's run was ridiculous, wasn't the guy meant to win a million dollars for winning tough enough. Then it turned out it was a four year contract worth a million. Then he got fired and only got a fraction of the prize money..... Good for him that he's doing well.

As for the Kurt Angle thing. Kurt was being a bully and Daniel made him pay!

He was shit though. Who remembers that rumble when eddie and Benoit chopped the hell out of him before eliminating him. I think it was his last appearance for wwe.
