Brock Lesnar is undoubtedly the greatest pure athlete to ever set foot inside a WWE ring. The Beast Incarnate has been on the top of both the professional wrestling world and the MMA world and was also the one to beat the Undertaker’s streak at Wrestlemania.
Brock reached the top of the professional wrestling world just months after his WWE debut when he became the youngest Undisputed Champion in WWE history. Since then, Brock has left WWE to find success elsewhere before making a sensational comeback and he’s been an unstoppable force since then.
