Several fans would simply agree that Brock Lesnar is one of the most dominant pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He had two terrific runs in WWE, both of which saw him winning major World Titles and being a huge draw for fans. Brock Lesnar was not seen on WWE television ever since he dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 back in 2020. Brock Lesnar was also previously called out by a Superstar from Monday Night RAW.
After being away from WWE television for over a year, Brock Lesnar made his return at WWE SummerSlam in 2021, immediately setting his sights set on Roman Reigns. He also sported a ponytail, which was completely different from what fans were used to seeing him in.
Lesnar won the WWE Championship after defeating Big E, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, and Bobby Lashley in a Fatal Five-Way match at WWE Day 1. However, he would lose the title to Bobby Lashley last month after Roman Reigns interfered in the match thanks to Paul Heyman turning on The Beast Incarnate.
Lesnar then won the Men’s Royal Rumble match and went on to choose Roman Reigns as his opponent for WrestleMania. He then won the WWE Championship in the WWE Title Elimination Chamber match in Saudi Arabia on February 19th. Brock Lesnar recently spoke on The Pat McAfee Show, where he revealed he almost went bankrupt during his first run in WWE.
“I don’t have to do this. Okay? I’ve been wise and I’m not here, I’m doing it because I want to. And I’m not gloating, I just, I’ve been good with money. Yeah, so it hasn’t always been that way though. I learned from a lot of people. I was almost bankrupt my first run, you know?”
“I just signed a big deal with Vince. I mean a big deal. Back then, 20 years ago was a lot of guaranteed money. And so then I’m like, six months later I’m like, ‘yeah, go screw yourself, Vince’. He was a little chapped. I get it now. Invested here. So, but I had to do that and he understood that. I had to leave. I had to go out and, I wasn’t done yet. You know, if I wouldn’t have left I wouldn’t have been, you know, in the UFC and all that stuff. When I made my name, I paved my road. You know, so, came back and established, this is what I want, this is how I’m gonna do it, and I’m very fortunate.”
