Brock Lesnar is a professional wrestler, former traditional martial artist, professional wrestler, and professional football player of American and Canadian descent. He is currently signed to WWE as a free agent, which allows him to work on all of the company’s brands. He appears to be the only person in WWE history to hold both the primary and secondary heavyweight titles.
Brock Edward Lesnar was born on July 12, 1977 in Webster, South Dakota to Stephanie & Richard Lesnar. He was raised on his mother and father’s Webster dairy farm and is of German ancestry. Troy and Chad are his older brothers and Brandi is his younger sister. After his crimson color blindness was deemed to be detrimental to his interest in working with explosives, Lesnar enlisted in the Army Military Police at age 17 and was assigned a clerical job. After failing a computer typing test, he was fired and ended up working for a contracting company.
Lesnar attended Webster High School and his senior year competed in professional wrestling, finishing runner-up at the state championships. In his sophomore year at Bismarck State College, he won a National Junior Collegiate Sports Association middleweight wrestling championship. Lesnar spent two years at Bismarck State College before enrolling on a wrestling scholarship at the University of Minnesota, where he shared a dorm room with future WWE teammate Shelton Benjamin, who also served as his assistant coach.
Brock Lesnar’s career
Lesnar joined the Global Wrestling Federation (WWF) in 2000 and was assigned to their developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) when he first met future sidekick and manager Paul Heyman. Lesnar was paired with Shelton Benjamin, an old college friend, by OVW booker Jim Cornette. They were called The Minnesota Stretched Crew and were three-time winners of the OVW Southern Doubles Championship. Before Lesnar was even recalled to the WWF’s current list in 2001 and 2002, Lesnar wrestled in several dark contests.
On the March 18, 2002 edition of Raw, Lesnar debuted as a villain only, attacking Al Snow, Maven and Spike Dudley in the WWF Hardcore Championship match, escorted by Paul Heyman, who was last seen giving orders to Lesnar. After WrestleMania, Lesnar shifted his focus to John Cena, who had already played sparingly in February 2003 after an F-5 into the ring post from Brock by claiming that Lesnar nearly destroyed his career or even called his new ending technique “FU” than Side swipe at the new title.
Rise to glory
In the incident of SmackDown! on October 9, Lesnar managed to defend his newly won championship against premiere player Paul London. Lesnar must have previously cost The Undertaker the WWE Championship in a match there against Kurt Angle shortly before the incident on SmackDown! on September 4th, which gave him a chance to shoot for Lesnar’s title. On October 8, 2005, Lesnar won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship in a 3-match match with Kazuyuki Fujita & Masahiro Chono at the Modern Japan Super (NJPW) show at the Tokyo Dome. Lesnar returned to WWE on April 2, 2012 during Raw as a heel when he confronted and defeated John Cena.
The next week on Raw, managing partner John Laurinaitis said Lesnar was signed to restore WWE’s “legitimacy” and to be the “current face of the brand.” Lesnar will also face Cena in a Rules Match during Extreme Rules, according to Laurinaitis. Despite dominating the match, Lesnar fell to Cena on April 29 at Extreme Rules. Lesnar won the Raw World Heavyweight Champion by defeating John Cena at SummerSlam; Throughout the fight, he executed sixteen We & two F-5s against Cena, who barely managed an offense. Lesnar was disqualified on a September 21 Night of Championships return due to interference from Seth Rollins, but retained his title.
Lesnar challenged Goldberg to the final match at WrestleMania 33 the next night on Raw. In September, Lesnar returned to the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view and interrupted a Hell in a Cell match between defending Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman by attempting to kick in the door and attempting to attack both men. The match effectively becomes a no-contest, denying Strowman his cash-in-the-bank cash-in match.
