Brock Lesnar is undoubtedly one of the most popular and successful wrestlers of any era. On April 6, 2014, at WrestleMania 30, the Beast put an end to The Undertaker's legendary 'Streak' to collective amazement.
Between April 2, 2017, and August 19, 2018, he held the Universal Championship exceeding 500 days of reign. On January 29, 2022, at the Royal Rumble, the 44-year-old from Webster won the royal brawl by entering as the last participant.
Lesnar is the only athlete in history to have won a world title in mixed martial arts, collegiate wrestling and professional wrestling. During a recent interview with 'Wrestling INC.' , Charlie Haas revealed some unedited details about Brock's personality.
Haas was part of the 'World's Greatest Tag Team' along with Shelton Benjamin and Kurt Angle in the early 2000s.
Charlie Haas on Brock Lesnar
"Brock Lesnar and I have always got along very well, there have never been arguments or arguments between us.
Even when we were on the road, we found the right understanding. We both loved going to clubs for beer and country music, so we had no problem getting together. Plus, they both like to fish. Lesnar is a very good guy, even if he can be a little scary at first sight” - said Haas.
As part of his 'After the Bell' podcast, Corey Graves admitted that he expected more from the match between Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble. “The match between Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley wasn't disappointing overall, but it didn't meet my expectations.
The Beast and The All Mighty showed off their exceptional power, which was pretty obvious on the eve of the contest. The sequences were spectacular, but they repeated too many times during the match. Both athletes kept getting up too frequently in relation to the blows they had suffered.
I was hoping for something better, I have to be honest." Haas believes one of the reasons he became a close friend of the former Universal champion was because they shared the same taste in music. He said anyone who likes country music would easily get along with The Beast Incarnate.
“If you love country music, then you’re going to get along great, and I grew up in Oklahoma, I am a country music man. I was an 80s hair band guy, and I didn’t get into grunge that much, although I do like Pearl Jam. But that’s when Garth Brooks took off, so I became a country fan after that,'' said Haas.
