Saying he 'tried to make it in football and failed' is the opposite of what actually happened. He simply didn't succeed on his own terms, which is go from football novice to NFL pro over the course of 6 months.
whatever man...

So when you said 'whatever man,' you really meant to say, 'It bothers me so much to be wrong, that I'm going to make a post that makes it seem like I don't care, only to run back to post again when I finally think of something that can kind of pass as a comeback?' Did I get that right?

Yes, that's the practice squad part. He was on the Vikings team during that time.

I certainly cannot speak for what his true meaning was, BUT It reads to me like he really could care less, and finds the whole idea of brock lesner to be pathetic, and sad, much as myself, i could be wrong, but thats what it sounds like, however please continue to prop up lesner as his skills are so superb after awhile you might actually make yourself believe that, meanwhile I think I am gonna go puke while thinking of his NON skilled self involved in the octagon with REAL MMA fighters.

Theres no doubt the man has skill, he could possibly be one of the greatest wrestlers coming into MMA, Im just not feeling all the hype hes getting about him destroying the HW div and powering through everyone.

Cause when you think about, the HW div prob has the most experienced guys, theres no way an 1-0 fighter is gonna outclass them in their own home.

PS:Yes. Well maybe, Hes MUCH bigger then AA, and AA has a glass jaw, but I say for now he would only take him down and hope for a tko or dec.
thanks for that vid. i've wanted to watch that fight but never found it. he doesn't look too bad at all, albeit his opponent is a can. but eh, i do believe he'll be a force to reckon with.

and i'm still in awe at how people disrespect wwe guys so much. sure they're working for a fake wrestling organization, but these guys are STRONG ATHLETES. with proper training, they can beat anyone. you look at the ufc guys. take a look at rich franklin: he was a teacher before he became a fighter. first impressions would be, "this guy is a joke, wth is he thinking?" and look at him now, a well accomplished mma fighter. a person's background doesn't tell the whole story.

It's not so hard to see why ex-professional wrestlers get a hard time. Putting aside the issue of the cheesiness of it, there is the fact that

a) Although professional wrestling is a physically demanding activity, it is much more like stunt work on a movie than combat sports

b) Most of the professional wrestlters are primarily or even exclusively gym monkeys, so their only oustanding physical attribute is large, clearly defined muscles. This doesn't even guarantee that they will be particularly strong.

You can see why people would have some doubts about the ability of a profesional wreslter to transition to a combat sport.
