After 13 seasons playing middle linebacker with the Chicago Bears, eight of which resulted in his making the Pro Bowl, one of which saw him named Defensive Rookie of the Year (2000), and another that saw him named Defensive Player of the Year (2005), Brian Urlacher has retired from the NFL.
But what does that have to do with pro wrestling?
Well, the folks at TNA decided this was a great opportunity to break out an old clip from one of its shows back in 2004 when Urlacher made an appearance. Here's the description for the clip:
Urlacher is a lifelong fan of wrestling, and appeared for TNA in our early years in January 2004, when he answered a challenge from former manager Don Callis and Jonny Fairplay from TV's "Survivor".
And here's the glorious video:
Dear god, he was awful. Kelly Kelly runs the ropes better than Brian Urlacher.
As a lifelong Bears fan who watched every single down Urlacher ever played -- and only ever purchased one jersey, his number 54 -- I would like to wish him well in whatever he does in the future. Thanks for the great memories.
