    Pro Wrestler a Viking?

    I don't remember his name, but I remember him in Training camp only to get cut later on by the Vikes.

    Anybody know who I'm talking about and what ever happened to him?

    Yep, someone (who knows) said he had the size, the strength, and the speed, but just wasn't a good enough flat out football player.

    On a side note, he never would have passed his steroid test (sorry wrestling fans), and may have been cut for that reason.

    Im pretty sure he was legit.

    If I remember correctly he was a real wrestler before a pro wrestler, and was equally as large.

    That's the guy . . . What's he up to now? I seem to remember he was determined to make the team and prove the "establishment" wrong. Did he give up his goals?

    Brock's contract with WWE forbids him from performing or signing with ANY other professional sports team or sports entertainment organization for 10 years.

    I think that particular term in his contract had a little something to do with him not sticking around the NFL. Besides the fact that he was incredibly raw and probably should have been playing OL like some other former college wrestlers have done; with success I might add. I think Kirk Lowdermilk was a college wrestler and he did pretty well in the NFL.

    *EDIT* There are probably a few more guys out there that wrestled in college that I can't think of right now that play OL in the NFL.

    And Steven Neal from the Pats: an All-American wrestler in college who is a very good guard now.

    How do ya like them apples?!
