MAN IN THE BOAT: WWE heavyweight champion and former Minnesota Gopher Brock Lesnar was injured over the weekend in a boating accident, apparently falling out of the boat while on a ride with some friends near San Antonio, TX. It's not clear at this point whether Lesnar was drinking, though that's normally the case when people fall out of boats.
Lesnar is believed to be the first professional wrestler to be injured in a boating accident since Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake (Ed Leslie) shattered nearly every bone in his face during a parasailing accident in 1990. Though I suppose it's debatable whether parasailing counts as "boating"- or, for that matter, if Beefcake counts as a "wrestler."
