#18 Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle in Japan
Brock Lesnar was IWGP Heavyweight Champion in 2006. After a disagreement with NJPW, the promotion stripped him of his title. However, the IGF (Inoki Genome Federation, a promotion formed by Antonio Inoki) still continued to recognize his title reign and he was recognized as their version of IWGP Champion. In 2007, he wrestled Kurt Angle in a title vs title match in IGF’s first event. Angle ended up winning the match to leave as both IWGP Heavyweight Champion and TNA World Heavyweight Champion. This photo was taken right after that match.
#17 Brock during his brief NFL stint
Brock Lesnar left WWE in 2004 to pursure his dream of playing in the NFL. After impressing in the combine, Lesnar was picked up by the Minnesota Vikings and made it until the last round of the cut-offs. The Vikings offered Lesnar the chance to play in NFL Europa but ‘The Beast’ ended up declining.
In this photo, we can see Lesnar in training during his brief NFL stint.
#16 Downtime with the lads
In this photo we see a different side of ‘The Beast’. Instead of his usual intimidating self in the ring, Lesnar can be seen chilling out with friends in the back of a pick up truck, just having a good time.Published 15 Apr 2020, 08:58 IST
