The former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is one of the biggest names in the company. His staggering paychecks have been a matter of discussion on multiple occasions. $250k is a whopping amount, but not for ‘The Beast Incarnate.’
Brock Lesnar was not happy with the paycheck
Lesnar was involved in a match against WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg at WrestleMania XX in April 2004. He made a quarter of a million dollars for that match, a huge payday for practically anyone on this planet. However, he was discontent with the payment.
During Grilling JR, the veteran commentator Jim Ross explained that Goldberg and Brock Lesnar were paid $250k each for their spot on the WrestleMania XX card. It is not known how Goldberg reacted to the pay but Lesnar wasn’t happy about it.
“I remember, the pay-off for WrestleMania 20, he [Lesnar] made $250,000 and so did Goldberg.”
“I remember sitting in my office in Stamford when Vince’s assistant said ‘Brock Lesnar is on the line, he wants to talk to Vince and Vince wants him to talk to you’. So that was my prep for that conversation.”
“I got on the phone to him and he’s in a foul mood because he thought he got screwed with his pay-off.”
“I didn’t have a problem with him hanging up on me. He heard his answer: ‘You’re not getting any more money, we think we paid you fairly’. Thank God he was on the phone and not staring me down the gullet! He’s a little intimidating. We were a little bit shocked it came to that.”
