Wrestlers Take On a Lion in Tug of War, Lose Horribly

You know that age-old question that has plagued mankind since the dawn of time, could three professional wrestlers beat a lion cub in a game of tug-of-war? Well, we finally have the answer, and folks, it’s not looking good for humanity.

Three grapplers from the WWE’s development brand NXT waged a tug-based war with a lion cub at the San Antonio Zoo. The lion, quite frankly putting in minimal effort, wins soundly.

?‍♂️ How many #NXT #WWE superstar wrestlers does it take to win in tug of war with a 2 1/2 year old lion cub? Apparently more than 3! #NXTSanAntonio #SAZoo pic.twitter.com/avyPVwRYjN

We here at Men’s Health have highlighted some freakish man-strength in our days—The Mountain doing a casual squat marathon, for instance, or Trevante Rhodes’ having triceps that look like this—but it’s incredibly humbling to highlight the fact the baby version of a wild animal can easily work these three dudes like it’s a rest day at the gym.

Those are three big dudes, mind you, one of which—Ricochet, real name Trevor Mann—once did this thing so athletic it tore my quads.

So, Friday’s health advice: While we do recommend working ropes into your workout, we do not advise using your newly shredded core to challenge a lion to a game of tug of war. This will end badly. Don’t do that.
