Birth of the Beast:

Like his ‘advocate’ Paul Heyman says, Brock Lesnar is a ‘once ever’ athlete. Born on a dairy farm to Stephanie and Richard Lesnar, Brock Lesnar has done it all. Committed to serving the nation, Lesnar had joined the National Guard; but his colorblindness would put a premature end to his service to the country. But what the military lost, was a huge gain for sports and entertainment.

As a wrestler out of Bismarck State College, Lesnar conquered the National Junior College Athletic Association heavyweight championship in his sophomore year. In 2000, he claimed the prestigious NCAA Division I Heavyweight Wrestling Championship and would become the only athlete in history to become a world champion across three disciplines - professional wrestling, amateur wrestling and mixed martial arts.

Soon after, he would sign to WWE and became the most dominant force wrestling has ever known!

Rise of the conqueror

After a successful amateur wrestling career, Lesnar signed to OVW and started making waves from the get go. He teamed up with his former roommate Shelton Benjamin and became one-half of the OVW Southern Tag Team Champions on three different occasions. After wrestling many dark matches, Lesnar would be called up, and with the immediate push that he would get, the company would never be the same!

The Next Big Thing

An alliance that would serve Lesnar throughout his career is that with his advocate Paul Heyman. With Heyman’s brains and Lesnar’s brawn, WWE experienced a storm of suplexes like none other. In his first run with WWE, he defeated legends such as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, The Undertaker, Kurt Angle and The Rock to become the (then) youngest Royal Rumble winner, King of the Ring winner and WWE Champion.Moreover, at that time, he became the quickest person to be WWE Champion after Ric Flair.

After a dominant run, Lesnar would quit wrestling after Wrestlemania 20 to pursue other avenues such as the NFL and MMA. He would be defeated by Bill Goldberg in his final encounter, until his big return eight years later.

The Japanese conqueror

WWE isn’t the only company in which Lesnar has been a dominant force. In fact, he won the IWGP Championship in his debut match at New Japan Pro Wrestling at the Tokyo Dome. WWE tried (unsuccessfully) several times, to stop Lesnar from working for their rivals. However, Lesnar did manage to have classics against Kurt Angle, Akebono, Shinsuke Nakamura and Yuji Nagata.

Return of the Beast

Returning after a celebrated career in the Octagon, Brock Lesnar would re-emerge in the WWE in 2012 with Paul Heyman at his side. Facing Triple H and C.M. Punk in power-packed storylines; Lesnar would go on to achieve the unthinkable - ending The Undertaker’s unbeaten Wrestlemania streak at Wrestlemania 30.

Since then, Lesnar has been an unconquerable monster, defeating John Cena at Summerslam 2014 without allowing him to get any kind of offence in, at all. Brock Lesnar also main-evented Wrestlemania 32 against Roman Reigns, soon after. During this phase, Lesnar also became the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, despite the fact that he is a part timer. He would hold this title from Summerslam 2014 to Wrestlemania 31, when Seth Rollins cashed in his Money- In -The-Bank briefcase.

Lesnar would embark on a dominant run subsequently, squashing opponents such as Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton, before being defeated in record time at Survivor Series by the returning Goldberg.  He even bested The Undertaker in a series of matches, ultimately defeating him at Hell in a Cell. Even during this dominant WWE run, Lesnar would return to the Octagon against Mark Hunt at UFC 200, and be paid a record-breaking purse. As of today, he’s WWE’s second highest paid superstar after John Cena.

Goldberg’s victory over Lesnar is the first time he’s been pinned clean, in the middle of the ring, in 3 long years.

Outside the Squared Circle

A resident of Maryfield in Canada, Lesnar is married to former WWE Diva Rena Greek, better known as Sable. They have two sons. Lesnar also has twins from a former relationship and is the godfather to Sable’s daughter from another marriage. A private person, Lesnar avoids the public eye as much as he can.

In 2011, Brock Lesnar co-authored an autobiography with Paul Heyman called Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination and Survival.

Brock Lesnar is a part of several video games ranging from WWE games to UFC games, to even NFL based games. He is the cover star for the latest WWE 2K release- WWE 2K17.
