Piledriver! LOL! Which type? Tombstone Piledriver or the sit down kind like Roddy Piper used to do?

He'd have to KO the guy first to be able to pick him up and actually piledrive him. Made me laugh though.

Thats the proper way to do a powerbomb.
Wow, first time I've ever seen that clip. Almost looked like he did it on purpose. He's an idiot if he did do that on purpose.

everyone who is saying brock is a crap fighter because he was a wwe wrestler are complete idiots! pro wrestling is entertainment, they're putting on a show for the fans. theres no way you can judge how good of a fighter he is from watching a wwe match. wrestling and fighting are completly different things. ken shamrock used to be a pro wrestler for a while, but did that make him a worthless fighter? no.

give lesnar a chance, if he gets his ass handed to him by eddie sanchez, then you have proof that hes rubbish. lesnar is a great athlete for his size. hes about 265 pounds and is built like matt hughes. he won't be piledriving anybody, but he will be getting alot of takedowns. he'll probably be the phsyically strongest fighter in the division, so i doubt theres alot of guys who could stop his takedowns.

I don't see why people describe Lesnar as 'fat' or 'roidhead.' He's obviously not fat and he wrestled for four years weighing as much as 295lbs and never once failed the NCAA's drug tests. To accuse him of steroid use is baseless and runs contrary to observable evidence.

Even guys like Randleman and Cole have to train cardio and Brock is much bigger than either fighter. I doubt he's done much specific training for cardio to prepare for “wrestling” matches; WWE looks more like crowd pleasing stunts and dry humping fat guys and not much that would be comparable to a fast paced MMA fight.
Considering he hasn't wrestled for WWE in 3 years and was recently offered a contract to play in NFL Europe after making the Minnesota Vikings practice squad, questioning his cardio makes about as much sense as accusing him of steroid use. Both may actually be true, but there's direct evidence to the contrary and not a shred to support the claims.

He'll have to slim down quite a bit and do tons of cardio to even have a chance at lasting 3 rounds with a decent fighter.
He made heavyweight (easily according to him) for his EliteXC debut. In an interview, he said he's been walking around at 270lbs since his time with the Vikings.

I'm not suggesting that Lesnar is going to come into MMA and destroy everyone, but considering his exceptional amateur wrestling background, obvious athleticism, and size advantage, I can't understand why anyone would question his potential, unless they were unable to see past the 3 years of his life he spent as an athletic performer. If that is indeed the only knock they have against him, then I don't think the problem lies with Lesnar.

most hard slams are totally legal....

bob sapp's slam on big nog would have been close to a spike on the head if it was in the ufc...

but even then, alot of guys to escape from armbars try to spike their opponent on his head....
