Anyone that’s followed or read anything on this site for any length of time knows that there are quite a few of us that are fans of professional wrestling. So, if there’s an excuse to talk about it, that’s fine, particularly if we can tie it into Minnesota Vikings football somehow.
Well, the other day, former Vikings’ wide receiver Nate Burleson recollected the short period of time that current WWE Universal Champion, former UFC heavyweight champion, and former NCAA wrestling champion (as a member of the Minnesota Golden Gophers) Brock Lesnar was with the team in 2004. The memory comes in cartoon form, and Burleson shared it on Twitter the other day.
Burleson’s talk centers around the joint practices that were held between the Vikings and the Kansas City Chiefs that had several incidents take place. Apparently, in one of the skirmishes, a Chiefs player shoved then-Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper to the ground. Lesnar helped Daunte pick himself up and wanted to know who did it. Lesnar found out. . .and then, apparently, went and did something about it.
This isn’t really connected to anything that’s going on with the team’s game against the Washington Redskins this week, but I thought it was still a pretty fun little story.
