Brock Lesnar is the only athlete in history to have won a world title in mixed martial arts, professional wrestling and collegiate wrestling. The 44-year-old from Webster can boast six WWE Championships, one UFC Heavyweight Championship and one NCAA Division I Heavyweight Championship.
During his career, he has held the WWE Universal Championship three times and the IWGP Heavyweight Championship Championship once. Lesnar is fresh from victory in the Royal Rumble match, having entered the Royal Rumble as number 30 and eliminated Drew McIntyre last.
The Beast has already announced that he will face Roman Reigns for the Universal title at WrestleMania 38. Meanwhile, Brock has been inducted into the WWE Championship contest at Elimination Chamber, which will be staged on February 19 in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).
During a long interview with 'GiveMeSport', Shelton Benjamin spent nice words for his great friend Brock Lesnar.
Shelton Benjamin praises Brock Lesnar
“Not everyone likes Brock Lesnar, I'm aware of that. From my point of view, 'The Beast Incarnate' is synonymous with professional wrestling" - confided Shelton Benjamin.
"When it comes to the best superstars of the modern era, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, John Cena, The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar come to mind. Brock cannot fail to be included in the list of the greatest ever, having had an impact that has very few equals in the history of wrestling” - he added.
In the latest edition of his podcast, former WWE manager Jim Cornette harshly criticized the epilogue of the men's Royal Rumble match. “It was not announced that Lesnar would participate in the men's Royal Rumble match with the number 30, although many fans had imagined it after what had happened earlier in the evening.
Brock Lesnar and Drew McIntyre were the last two athletes to remain in the ring. The sequence that allowed the Beast to win was frankly ridiculous. McIntyre missed a kick, Brock picked him up and knocked him out of the ring in a matter of seconds.
A truly embarrassing conclusion." Fortunately for Lesnar, his night was far from over. He went on to compete in the Royal Rumble match and won the 30-man battle to punch his ticket to WrestleMania. He confirmed on RAW this week that he will challenge Reigns for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania this year.
Brock Lesnar will look to make a strong statement by confronting Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman on SmackDown this week. Unless Lesnar plans on ditching his current gimmick, we might also see an epic war of words between him and his former advocate.
