Brock Lesnar will be called upon to take on Roman Reigns again at WrestleMania 38, the most anticipated event on the calendar. The two should have already met on Day 1, the first pay-per-view of 2022, but the 'Tribal Chief' Coronavirus positivity has turned the tables.
The Beast is arguably one of the most controversial characters in WWE history, but there's no denying that he made modern wrestling history. The 44-year-old from Webster is in fact the only athlete in history to have won a world title in mixed martial arts, professional wrestling and collegiate wrestling.
His record includes seven WWE Championships, one UFC Heavyweight Championship and one NCAA Division I Heavyweight Championship. Lesnar is also known for his long tenure in the UFC, of which he was a great exponent. On 9 July 2016, he returned to the octagon during 'UFC 200', beating Mark Hunt by unanimous decision.
However, the outcome of the meeting was converted into a 'no contest' due to Brock's positive doping.
Brock Lesnar talks about UFC
In a recent interview with the New York Post, Brock Lesnar was asked if his return to the UFC is possible.
“Mixed martial arts is a sport reserved for very young athletes, so I would say the doors are closed for me. I'm just a WWE superstar now” - the Beast replied. The current WWE Champion also spoke of his friendship with Paul Heyman: “Paul is a dear friend of mine.
We have a very close relationship in real life too, not just in wrestling. I think everyone needs a figure like Heyman in their life”. In the latest episode of his podcast, former WWE manager Jim Cornette admitted he adores the new Brock: “After so many years in this business, his character needed a change.
I like the new Lesnar with the lumberjack shirt, tail and black cowboy hat. I love that he spends time with the kids and smiles at people when he enters the ring." Brock Lesnar also said that he doesn't like watching a lot of TV but admitted to liking hit shows like Seinfield and F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
He also revealed that Courtney Cox's Monica is his favorite from the show. "I am not a huge TV guy. I never have been, but honestly, I haven't. I tuned into the Superbowl but didn't catch the halftime show. But I did go back and watched it on YouTube.
I don't watch the UFC. Even when I was competing, I'd go back and watch some of my matches and I can honestly say that maybe I've only rented half a dozen PPVs. Seinfeld, or catch a little bit of F.R.I.E.N.D.S once in a while. Favorite is Monica," said Lesnar.
