Brock Lesnar is one of the most dominant world champions in modern WWE history especially his current run as a part-timer. Lesnar is one of the best to ever set foot inside the squared circle. A champion amateur wrestler before WWE signed him, Lesnar has won titles everywhere he's gone from the WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling to being a UFC Champion when he transitioned to a career in mixed martial arts.

Lesnar has and has always been, to this day, a very private person. He's often said that he wasn't a fan of professional wrestling while growing up and wrestling in the WWE is just a job for him. He doesn't have that many people he's close to in WWE and in this article, we take a look at a few Superstars Brock Lesnar is close to and a some he dislikes.

Disclaimer: We all know Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are close friends so I won't include him.

LIKES #3 - CM Punk

Believe it or not, CM Punk and Brock Lesnar are unlikely friends and have a ton of respect for each other. This comes as especially surprising considering Punk has been public about how much he disapproves of part-timers. Both men haven't been afraid to be public in their criticism of WWE either.

What really cemented their friendship was Brock Lesnar wishing Punk luck before his first ever fight in the UFC.

DISLIKES #3 - Braun Strowman

I think it's pretty evident that for some reason, Brock Lesnar doesn't respect Braun Strowman. This might be just conjecture, but if you see their exchanges on RAW over the last couple of months, Lesnar always seems to be not taking Strowman too seriously, including chuckling when he messed up his lines on one occasion.

This may have something to do with that errant knee Strowman hit Lesnar with at the 2018 Royal Rumble. The one after which Lesnar stunned Strowman with a right hand to the face.

LIKES #2 - Goldberg

It may come as a surprise to some but Brock Lesnar and Goldberg have actually been friends for years. Both left WWE after their poorly received match at WrestleMania XX before feuding again in late 2016.

Lesnar lost to the returning Goldberg in less than 90 seconds with 'The Beast' putting over his friend bigtime before their title match at WrestleMania 33.

Goldberg said the following about Lesnar in an interview: “I know from a personal level, whatever Brock wants to do, I'm good with. I like Brock, he's one of the few from that business I can even personally stand. I respect him, I admire him, and I appreciate him."

DISLIKES #2 - Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho isn't afraid of getting in anyone's face and this includes 'The Beast' Brock Lesnar. After the incident at SummerSlam 2016, where Lesnar busted Randy Orton open, Chris Jericho reportedly angrily confronted Lesnar in Gorilla Position. Reports at the time stated that the two came close to getting into a physical altercation.

LIKES #1 - The Undertaker

Despite not being friends during Brock Lesnar's early days in the WWE, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker eventually respected each other's work and became close friends behind the scenes.

The Undertaker has often spoken about how important respect is in pro wrestling and someone he definitely respects in Brock Lesnar. This mutual respect definitely played a part in The Undertaker allowing Brock Lesnar to break his streak at WrestleMania 30.

DISLIKES #1 - Dean Ambrose

This one was pretty clear from the match these guys had at WrestleMania 32 and everything Dean Ambrose had to say about the match afterwards. The 'Lunatic Fringe' said that Lesnar shot down all the ideas he had for the match:

"Artistically, Brock didn’t want to do anything, if we’re going to be perfectly honest. Brock’s gonna Brock. He’s all about Brock. I had a vision for that match to be the craziest thing imaginable, you know what I mean, and I was trying to pitch everything to everybody and had every idea. I put so much effort in and so much work in, and other people did too, and I was met with laziness."
