Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar is a professional wrestler from the United States of America, currently signed on to perform as a pro wrestler with the World Wrestling Entertainment or the WWE, the premier pro wrestling promotion in the world. He is also a former professional football player and a Mixed Martial Artist and has had several assignments in his career as well. He has a very accomplished background as an amateur wrestler and is a former holder of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Heavyweight Championship during his stint with the promotion.

Lesnar first gained global prominence in 2002 when he first signed his professional contract with the WWE and in his first stint with the promotion, he won three World titles, winning the WWE Championship and became the youngest ever holder of the title when he defeated The Rock at Summer Slam in 2003 to win the title. Brock Lesnar won the King of the Ring title in 2002 as well as the Royal Rumble title in 2003.

Lesnar always wanted to become a professional football player and after he left the WWE in 2004, he pursued a professional career with the Minnesota Vikings of the NFL. He was part of the team’s pre-season program but he was a late cut for the team, ending his dream of becoming a professional football player. This led him to return to pro wrestling and he joined the New Japan Pro Wrestling or NJPW promotion where he went on to become the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

He then joined the UFC, winning the UFC Heavyweight Championship but a severe illness cut short his career in the UFC and Brock Lesnar made a sensational return to the WWE at the end of 2011, first making sporadic appearances before becoming a full -timer again in the promotion.
