Dude comes out talking all kinds of shit to Lashley and then decides to concentrate on his acting? Has he been in anything other than an occasional tv show? Maybe their doing Mr.Nanny or Suberban Commando sequels

Yeah Hollywood has been waiting a long time for his storied wrestling career to come to a close; it's a shame the MMA world won't get to see what could've been the greatest champion ever
