WWE News: WWE artist Rob Schamberger shares interesting story about Brock Lesnar
What's the story?
Rob Schamberger has been working for WWE for almost four years now and creating some interesting paintings for the company to sell on their auction website, it seems that in that time Schamberger has gained a number of fans within the company.
In case you didn't know...
Schamberger was hired by WWE ahead of WrestleMania 30 and given the task of painting a 7-by-5 canvas that celebrated 30 years of WrestleMania which could then show off all of his skills.
Evidentally the star did well since he has been working for the company ever since and designing some of the most unique paintings of artists for fans to buy.
Rob is a huge WWE fan and has been painting WWE stars for the past few years, it seems that pushing his art skills put him on WWE's radar and allowed him to be noticed by the company, who later went on to give him an incredible opportunity as part of one of the biggest events in their history.
The heart of the matter
During a recent interview with FOX 4 Kansas City, Schamberger revealed an interesting story about the time where the current Universal Champion decided to watch him paint whilst he was preparing for his match against Seth Rollins at Battleground back in 2015. (Transcript via WrestlingInc.com)
"While I'm in the back painting (during WWE Battleground 2015), I feel this presence behind me. I don't see or hear anything. It's just like a sixth sense. I feel it. I turn around, and it's Brock Lesnar watching me paint," Schamberger said.
"It turns out Brock is actually a bit of an art fan and just wanted to watch me paint while he was preparing for his match. He went out and just destroyed Seth Rollins."
It seems that Brock is a huge fan of art and enjoyed watching Schamberger paint as a way of preparing to decimate Rollins.
Rob has his own show called Canvas to Canvas on the WWE Network which can be viewed anytime as well as a number of his work available on WWE's auction site, all of these paintings are signed by the superstar in question as well.
It's well-known that Lesnar is a fan of art, it seems that he finds it therapeutic, especially when he's warming up for a match. It's nice that he finds a way to channel himself outside of the ring and that Rob is able to still concentrate knowing that someone like Brock is looking over his shoulder. It's quite a nice story for him to share, it humanizes Brock somewhat.
