That being said, let's take a look at 5 stunning Brock Lesnar moments in WWE.

Brock Lesnar debuted in WWE in March 2002. Just five months later, he was facing The Rock for the WWE Championship. That is a feat.

The rapid rise of Brock Lesnar came with many bodies being laid out, a King of the Ring tournament win and the emergence of a beast that would make everyone take notice.

This passing of the torch moment stunned the WWE universe, who couldn't quite believe a superstar had walked through the door and won the most prestigious title in all of pro-wrestling so quickly.

For Brock, it was just the beginning, as he went on to feud with the likes of The Undertaker just a few weeks later.

"Na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye" rang around Madison Square Garden as Brock Lesnar departed WWE in 2004.

Lesnar faced Goldberg at WrestleMania 20, but it was revealed prior to the match that both men would be walking away from the company, which resulted in a toxic response from the audience throughout the match.

The news stunned the WWE Universe, as Brock had become one of the main characters in WWE. Lesnar cited that he could no longer keep up with WWE's travel schedule to continue working for the company full-time.

Brock Lesnar returned to WWE a few years later on a part-time basis, which allowed him to compete at the rate he desired all those years ago.

Lesnar stunned the WWE Universe by walking out the night after WrestleMania 28 to confront John Cena in the middle of the ring.

The rapid rise of Brock Lesnar throughout 2002 continued into 2003, where he was pitted against Kurt Angle in the main event of WrestleMania 19.

During the match, Brock tried to pull off a move he had done many times before in OVW, the Shooting Star Press. Unfortunately, Kurt Angle was too far away from him to connect properly, which resulted in him landing awkwardly.

Fans gasped as they saw Brock nearly break his neck. Lesnar was dazed but, through sheer instinct, continued and won the match, delivering an F-5 to Kurt Angle to win the WWE Championship.

It was a scary moment that could have ended Brock Lesnar's career. Thankfully, he recovered and went on to have another impressive year in 2003.

It was a collision we'd been waiting for, for years. A match between two of the modern day greats: Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton.

Everything was great until a single moment turned the match into one of the most stunning moments we'd witnessed in a WWE ring. Brock Lesnar took off his fighting gloves and began to legitimately hit Orton with his bare-knuckles and elbows. Througout the beating, Orton was defenseless on the ground.

Randy Orton started to bleed so prefusely that he required a number of stitches when he returned backstage. It even caused Chris Jericho to exchange heated words with personnel backstage and with Brock Lesnar himself about the incident.

#1 Ending The Undertaker's WrestleMania streak

The most shocking moment in WrestleMania history occurred in New Orleans at WrestleMania 30. It left those in attendance and fans around the world stunned and shocked.

The Undertaker's streak was synonymous with WrestleMania and it came to a crashing end thanks to The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar. After delivering multiple F-5s, Lesnar pinned The Deadman, silencing the fans in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

It is by far Brock Lesnar's most historical accolade during his time with WWE. His career will certainly be remembered for a moment that was heartbreaking for the millions of Undertaker fans all over the globe.
