#5 Shelton Benjamin

From college itself

The relationship between Shelton Benjamin and Brock Lesnar dates back to their College days. In fact, for a short time period, Benjamin even went on to coach Lesnar in amateur wrestling. The former Golden Gophers were roommates and started off their professional wrestling career as tag team partners.

They went on to excel in the OVW class, which also had Randy Orton and John Cena until Paul Heyman decided to help Lesnar get into the main roster.

Benjamin is the Godfather of Lesnar’s two oldest kids when Heyman is the Godfather of his two younger ones.
