Brock Lesnaris the current Universal Champion. He is currently in his second reign and is the only person to hold the Universal Championship twice. His last reign was a record-setting reign that lasted more than 500 days, which was ended by Roman Reigns at Summerslam 2018.
He won the Universal Championship beating Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel for the vacated Universal Championship - which was vacated by Roman Reigns due to him taking time off for treatment of leukemia.
After a successful amateur wrestling career, Lesnar signed to OVW and started making waves from the get-go. He teamed up with his former roommate Shelton Benjamin and became one-half of the OVW Southern Tag Team Champions on three different occasions. After wrestling many dark matches, Lesnar would be called up, and with the immediate push that he would get, the company would never be the same!
Lesnar left the company after Wrestlemania 20 and went on to perform for NJPW and also made a name for himself in UFC where he held the Heavyweight Championship.
Returning after a celebrated career in the Octagon, Brock Lesnar would re-emerge in the WWE in 2012 with Paul Heyman at his side. Facing Triple H and C.M. Punk in power-packed storylines; Lesnar would go on to achieve the unthinkable - ending The Undertaker’s unbeaten Wrestlemania streak at Wrestlemania 30.
Since then, Lesnar has been an unconquerable monster, defeating John Cena at Summerslam 2014 without allowing him to get any kind of offense in, at all. Brock Lesnar also main-evented Wrestlemania 32 against Roman Reigns, soon after. During this phase, Lesnar also became the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, despite the fact that he was a part-timer. He would hold this title from Summerslam 2014 to Wrestlemania 31, when Seth Rollins cashed in his Money- In -The-Bank briefcase.
Lesnar would embark on a dominant run subsequently, squashing opponents such as Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton, before being defeated in record time at Survivor Series by the returning Goldberg. He even bested The Undertaker in a series of matches, ultimately defeating him at Hell in a Cell.
Even during this dominant WWE run, Lesnar would return to the Octagon against Mark Hunt at UFC 200, and be paid a record-breaking purse. As of today, he’s WWE’s second highest paid superstar after John Cena.
There are rumors that Brock will be returning to UFC soon, and that his contract with WWE would have concluded at Crown Jewel had Roman Reigns still been with the company.
