    Being probably one of the biggest wrestling fans that also loves the Texans, let me be the first to tell you that this IS NOT a rumor. Wrestlemania XX was his last event. Yes, he's putting his career on hold at the moment to persue his dream of playing football. In high school he was a full back and linebacker. In college, he was strictly a wrestler. Most NFL teams aren't taking him seriously. He runs about a 4.3 in the 40, which is very impressive given his size (6'4" 295 lbs). Chances are he'll play either lineman (offensive or defenssive) or maybe even linebacker. He's from Minnesota, by the way.

    He would probably looking to be a d-line (an end if I had to guess). He is just doing this as a publicity stunts and to strong arm the WWE, he doesn't like the route his character was going on the show.

    Saw a report a week or so ago that an NFL team had offered him a contract to come to camp but he turned them down. Sorry, can't remember any more details.

    Lesnar? I want to see Goldberg play again. He's a legitimate psycho on the football field(maybe in real life too).

    I actually feel like a bit of a nerd for knowing as much as I do about the situation. It wasn't so much he hated the direction his character was taking but the travel schedule as well. The way I look at it, he was given too much too soon. He wants to be a Viking but I doubt that will happen. He'll probably be a DE or DT but I wouldn't rule him out as a linebacker, either. He's much faster than he looks. I'm actually halfway interested in what's going to happen with this. I still think he's a bit :crazy: for quitting at was becoming the height of his career.

    If this wrestler plays 1 down in the NFL, I'll change my screen name to Brock Lesner's _____ (fill in the blank).

    Could someone here explain to me the fascination with pro wrestling? Oiled-up men in speedos grabbing each other (not that there's anything wrong with that)? Everyone knows it's a big put on. I'm not above watching a soap opera, but I want the guys as clothed as possible.

    fake ofcourse but getting kicked in the head, dropped from 6+ feet, or slapped hard enough for all of compaq to hear it hurts ... fun to root for your favorites too. i dont think brock's giving it any real consideration, my guess it's mostly a publicity stunt.

    LB, FB, or TE. He has a good build for either of those. Speed and agility are my questions.

    if i had to guess, i would say he wasn't on the juice...most likely because vince mcmahon was sued a few years back for encouraging the use of, and handing out, steroids to wrestlers...this should be an interesting story though :popcorn: ...

    True it's fake, but tune in sometimes... they've added more women wrestlers / matches since last I've tuned in. :excited:

    That and now Vince fires guys on the spot for any kind of drug use that isn't from a doctor, 'roids included. Brian "Grandmaster Sexay" Lawler was fired a couple years ago for drugs and actually got the axe AGAIN after Monday's show for being late. Jeff Hardy can't come back until he goes to rehab. The list just goes on. So I hardly doubt Brock Juices. As far as agility, he's one of the few men over 215 lbs that can pull off a shooting star press. The botched attempt at WrestleMania XIX was a fluke. I've seen tapes from when he was in OVW and the kid would do it on the regular. I still think he's stupid for leaving like that.

    well, today the minneapolis star-tribune had an extensive article on lesnar's bid to enter the nfl...

    http://www.startribune.com/stories/510/4802803.html

    ...based solely on #'s, i say he has a shot to at least make someone's practice squad...i can't believe he turned down the $45 million remaining in his contract to follow this dream, though...

    He gave up 45 million for a the NFL? Bad career move there. I hope he makes it though.

    This is a stupid question but I'm uneducated on steroids.

    I watched RAW one evening and noticed alot of the wrestlers have these blood vessels on their arms and chest that look like they are going to come thru their skin.

    Is that from steroid use? It was only the really big guys that I noticed on..
