Trust me, Brock was not supposed to land on his head/neck doing that shooting star press.

I still like Heath in this fight, but a part of me thinks he's not taking this as seriously as he should. Seems like he thinks he's going to automatically rock Lesnar and put him down.

Just try to roll on your back by yourself or even try to hold your head after that kind of accident if it was real.

I wish I could see that video from a proper angle
Brock was rotating which took a little of the impact as did the fact that it was a flexible ring as opposed to concrete. How do you suggest he scripted landing on his head? Or for that matter how does intending to do it ddiminish the impact?

I feel the same way. I think Herring is definitely underestimating Lesnar. Lesnar is going to come in 100% in top ****in' shape and hungry to win...




What a stud

About 40secs in it shows it in very slow motion

How was that scripted?

This is Lesnar doing the same thing a couple years earlier... And not 'Scripting falling on his head'

I see Herring taking this one if he does take it seriously -and I would if I was him.

Brock video was pretty sick, he did almost die there... but i think it's mostly luck - ski jumpers, snow and skate-boarders occasionally get in similar situations (only much worse) and it doesn't mean that they take head-kicks well

No, whoever that was, I do not believe in "WWE crap".
I simply realise that Lesnar landing on his head in the main event of the largest wrestling show each year in the world probably wasn't part of the script.

I've heard it before, isnt a thicker neck generally better for 'chin strength'?

Less of a chance of your brain richocheting around in your skull, and Lesnar dosent really have a neck... so...

He'll be seeing that Brock is the real deal, when Brock is pounding on Herring's face after he takes him down.

I think Heath will take away Brock's shots by constantly moving and throwing leg kicks. Even if Lesnar takes Heath down, I don't think he'll be able to do much---especially with Heath's experience against guys like Nogueira. I see Heath dragging the fight into deeper waters and finishing Brock via TKO.

I agree just give brock a little time, before to long you wont be able to touch him. The guy has super human strength. Give the mma skills some more tweeking and yuo will see many many beat downs in the future with a belt around the waist.
