#2: Brock Lesnar didn't grow up as a WWE fan


It's no secret that Brock Lesnar went on to become one of the most popular WWE Superstars of all time, but Lesnar did say in a 2016 interview on ESPN’s Face to Face that he did not watch WWE while growing up as a child.

“I didn’t grow up as a pro wrestling fan. I never watched pro wrestling as a kid. The first time I’d ever seen pro wrestling or ever had the desire to even watch it, I was already a senior in college when the company approached me and wanted me to participate with the programme.”

This actually became a more popular fact on an episode of WWE RAW in 2018, when Lesnar was reading an edition of 'The Backwoodsman' magazine as the former Universal Champion clearly stated to Paul Heyman that he didn't watch the show at all.

Clearly, The Beast Incarnate has been established as a star who puts monetary benefits over being passionate about sports entertainment, and WWE fans have developed a likening to that aspect of Brock Lesnar's intense character over the past few years.
