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 after Roman Reigns interfered in the match thanks to Paul Heyman turning on The Beast Incarnate. After a hiatus, Lesnar came back and attacked Roman Reigns again.
He challenged Roman Reigns for his titles at WWE SummerSlam. It featured The Beast Incarnate using a tractor to destroy the ring as well. Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle also had a shoot fight backstage in WWE.
According to WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco, Vince McMahon wasn’t happy when Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle got into a ‘shoot’ fight.
“Vince don’t like horseplay. Everybody knows Vince is a very serious guy. You got two of your stars out there trying to wrestle each other. And when you’re wrestling each other, it’s not a work.
And he [McMahon] starts chewing me. ‘Why are you letting those guys do it?’ ‘Vince, I’m backstage with you’. ‘You know they’re going to do it. Why did you let them do what they did. Don’t you understand how they’re two jackpots. They’re going to put money on your table, they’re going to put money on my table. And you’re out there letting them do this potentially hurting each other.'”
