Vikings cut Brock Lesnar
By JASON CLEVETT -- SLAM! Wrestling


Former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar's football dreams were dashed at least temporarily today when he was cut from the Minnesota Vikings.

Although Lesnar, who walked away from World Wrestling Entertainment after Wrestlemania XX in March to pursue his Football dreams, was impressive in training camp lack of experience combined with a groin injury from a motorcyle accident in April proved to be too much to overcome during training.

Vikings coach Mike Tice told ESPN.com that the club would be "proud" to allocate him to the NFL's developmental league next spring.

"I told him that he should at some point end up in NFL Europe this year and play," Tice said. "Hopefully that will be as a Viking."

Lesnar wasn't available for comment but his agent Ed Hitchcock told ESPN.com that Lesnar want to continue to develop on the practice squad and in NFL Europe.

"He is committed to this long-term," Hitchcock said. "He's realistic about what it takes to develop. There are players who've played this game all their lives who take a couple of years to develop [in the NFL]."
