We have come to a point where fans have grown completely tired of Brock Lesnar's shtick where he doesn't care one bit about the title he holds on his shoulder. Some might even allege that Lesnar's disrespect for the WWE and its major title has left a bad taste in the fans' mouth. But this isn't the first time when fans have hated The Beast with all their heart. Here are three WWE moments that made fans hate Brock Lesnar.


#3 Lesnar destroys Randy Orton

As Summerslam 2016 grew closer, WWE announced a blockbuster match to end the show, pitting The Viper, Randy Orton against Brock Lesnar. Fans had waited for this supposed dream match since the two superstars made their debut in 2002.

The match couldn't have been more one-sided. Brock beat the tar out of Randy Orton, hitting him with legit elbow shots to the head until blood started gushing out. This also led to a backstage confrontation between Jericho and Brock that was broken up by Vince McMahon.

Although this beatdown was preplanned, fans couldn't have been more pissed off at the state Lesnar left Orton in at Summerslam.

The build-up to the Universal title match at WrestleMania 34 was a weird one. The WWE tried to inculcate Brock's feelings towards WWE and its major title to the storyline. Brock was known for only caring about WWE's paycheck and nothing else.

Fans watched in disgust as a desperate Paul Heyman tried his best to convince a disinterested Lesnar to come out in front of the fans. Brock, who was busy reading a magazine, didn't take this lightly and threatened Heyman with force.

At a time when fans were clearly pissed off at Lesnar for not caring about them one bit, this segment added that much-needed fuel to the fire and made the WWE Universe hate him even more.

No one had the slightest idea as to what was going to happen that night in New Orleans. The moment Brock delivered his third F5 to The Deadman and pinned him in the middle of the ring, the sea of 70,000 fans gasped in unison. This was followed by a long stretch of silence as no one believed that the streak was history.

Brock Lesnar immediately became the most hated superstar in the WWE, and Paul Heyman's constant reminders about The Beast breaking The Undertaker's streak didn't sit well with the fans too.

It took Lesnar squashing John Cena at Summerslam 2014 to calm the fans down and begin to revere him again. But what followed was the 5-year long reign of terror, which is still going strong and is expected to come to an end at WrestleMania 35 at the hands of Seth Rollins.
