Brock Lesnar left WWE in March 2004, immediately after WrestleMania 20, where he lost to Goldberg. Soon after, Lesnar was involved in a bike accident and his NFL dreams never came to fruition.

This forced him to contact WWE again, but Vince McMahon wasn't interested in signing The Beast this time around. Lesnar went on to compete in NJPW, and didn't mince his words while bashing Vince McMahon in several chapters of his book.

Lesnar took several shots at Vince McMahon in the book, and recalled how miserable he felt during his final few months in WWE. If you have seen Lesnar's WrestleMania 20 match against Goldberg, it's clear as day how disinterested he looked in working a match. Lesnar was unhappy about how WWE had been booking him for a while at that point. Vince's refusal to re-sign him only spoiled their relations further, and it would be 8 long years before Lesnar came back to the company.
