Re: Being "legit" means nothing in WWE.
It all comes down to perception. When a fan sees a man or woman from a real combat sport who has won multiple legit fights, well it's easy to take them a lot more seriously. Image is also a very big part of pro wrestling and a wrestler who cultivates an image of himself as being a legit ass kicker will have no problem being taken seriously by wrestling fans. It helps Brock Lesnar to be seen as legit because it fuels the beast persona even more.
