About

Like his "Advocate" Paul Heyman says, Brock Lesnar (real name Brock Edward Lesnar) is a "Once Ever" athlete. Born on a dairy farm to Stephanie and Richard Lesnar, Brock Lesnar has done it all. Committed to serving the nation, Brock Lesnar had joined the National Guard; but his color blindness would put a premature end to his service to the country. But what the military lost, was a huge gain for sports and entertainment.

As a wrestler out of Bismarck State College, Brock Lesnar conquered the National Junior College Athletic Association heavyweight championship in his sophomore year. In 2000, he claimed the prestigious NCAA Division I Heavyweight Wrestling Championship and would become the only athlete in history to become a world champion across three disciplines - professional wrestling, amateur wrestling and mixed martial arts.

Soon after, he would sign to WWE and became the most dominant force wrestling has ever known!

Rise of Brock Lesnar

After a successful amateur wrestling career, Brock Lesnar signed to OVW and started making waves from the get go. He teamed up with his former roommate Shelton Benjamin and became one-half of the OVW Southern Tag Team Champions on three different occasions. After wrestling many dark matches, Lesnar would be called up, and with the immediate push that he would get, the company would never be the same!

Brock Lesnar's The Next Big Thing

An alliance that would serve Brock Lesnar throughout his career is that with his advocate Paul Heyman. With Heyman brains and Lesnar brawn, WWE experienced a storm of suplexes like none other. In his first run with WWE, he defeated legends such as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, The Undertaker, Kurt Angle and The Rock to become the (then) youngest Royal Rumble winner, King of the Ring winner and WWE Champion.Moreover, at that time, he became the quickest person to be WWE Champion after Ric Flair.

After a dominant run, Lesnar would quit wrestling after Wrestlemania 20 to pursue other avenues such as the NFL and MMA. He would be defeated by Bill Goldberg in his final encounter, until his big return eight years later.

The Japanese conqueror

WWE isn't the only company in which Brock Lesnar has been a dominant force. In fact, he won the IWGP Championship in his debut match at New Japan Pro Wrestling at the Tokyo Dome. WWE tried (unsuccessfully) several times, to stop him from working for their rivals. However, he did manage to have classics against Kurt Angle, Akebono, Shinsuke Nakamura and Yuji Nagata.

WWE Return of the Beast 

Returning after a celebrated career in the Octagon, Brock Lesnar would re-emerge in the WWE in 2012 with Paul Heyman at his side. Facing Triple H and C.M. Punk in power-packed storylines; Brock Lesnar would go on to achieve the unthinkable - ending The Undertaker's unbeaten Wrestlemania streak at Wrestlemania 30.

Since then, he has been an unconquerable monster, defeating John Cena at Summerslam 2014 without allowing him to get any kind of offence in, at all. Brock Lesnar also main-evented Wrestlemania 32 against Roman Reigns, soon after. During this phase, he also became the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, despite the fact that he is a part timer. He would hold this title from Summerslam 2014 to Wrestlemania 31, when Seth Rollins cashed in his Money- In -The-Bank briefcase.

Brock Lesnar would embark on a dominant run subsequently, squashing opponents such as Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton, before being defeated in record time at Survivor Series by the returning Goldberg. He even bested The Undertaker in a series of matches, ultimately defeating him at Hell in a Cell. Even during this dominant WWE run, Lesnar would return to the Octagon against Mark Hunt at UFC 200, and be paid a record-breaking purse. As of today, he's WWE's second highest paid superstar after John Cena.

Goldberg’s victory over Brock Lesnar is the first time he's been pinned clean, in the middle of the ring, in 3 long years. Lesnar would then go on to defend the title against the likes of Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman.

Wife

A resident of Maryfield in Canada, Brock Lesnar got married to former WWE Diva Rena Greek, better known as Sable on May 6, 2006. They have two sons and twins from a former relationship and is the godfather to Sable's daughter from another marriage. A private person, he avoids the public eye as much as he can.
