Talking to the host about Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle said, “We go back. We go to RAW, or SmackDown. We’re on SmackDown. He goes up to Vince. Says, ‘Vince, I want to try out for the NFL.’ I was like, “Oh! F*** man! He just f**** himself.” So, next week is WrestleMania and what happened… Brock Lesnar does the job against Goldberg. It would’ve been the other way if Brock would have smartened up but he didn’t because he’s an idiot.”

Brock Lesnar was doing pretty well in the WWE when he left to pursue his dream sport.

The real reason behind this was never revealed. But at that time, Lesnar met with a horrible accident and this was a key reason in bringing his NFL dream to a halt.
