Brock Lesnar tried to play football, and it did not go well

Have it!

Brock Lesnar is one of the most terrifying human beings on the planet.

Standing 6ft 3, and weighing 286 lbs, the current WWE Universal Champion and former UFC Heavyweight Champion has dominated the competition in both fake and real fighting. Is there anything he can’t do?

Well, it seems there is. He can’t play football very well.

The WWE are currently in Saudi Arabia for the ‘Greatest Ever Royal Rumble’ – a strange special show that includes a 50 man Royal Rumble, The Undertaker in a casket match, and every title on the line (apart from the women’s championships, as no female performers are allowed to appear due to Saudi Arabian law). Brock is set to defend his title against Roman Reigns in a steel cage. Prior to the event though, footage of some of the wrestlers having a little kickabout has emerged – here’s the video of Lesnar, Randy Orton, Cesaro and Sunil Singh.

Brock Lesnar has absolutely no tekkers. The ball drops perfectly onto his foot and he just humps it into row Z. He’s not even got his eyes on the ball. Shocking display.

Actually, it reminds us of this:

Saying that though you wouldn’t mind having Brock at the back in your Sunday league side, would you? No tricky little strikers would get through your defence if you had him turning out for you on Hackney Marshes, would they? Tony Pulis is probably on the phone to Paul Hyman right now.
