Brock Lesnar has often been criticized for his poor attachment to wrestling, but there's no denying he made history in the business. Suffice it to say that the Beast is 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. During his glorious career, he also won the WWE Universal Championship and the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
Webster's 45-year-old took on Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, the biggest pay-per-view of the summer, and was defeated at the end of an electrifying match. It's not always easy to work with an athlete of Brock's caliber. In the latest edition of 'The Wrestling Outlaws' podcast, Road Dogg revealed that Jinder Mahal was having great difficulty interacting with 'The Beast Incarnate'
Road Dogg on Brock Lesnar
At the 2017 Survivor Series, Brock Lesnar was supposed to challenge Mahal in a 'Champion vs. Champion Match' The match never materialized, as Modern Day Maharaja lost the title to AJ Styles a few days before the PPV.
“Jinder Mahal was having enormous difficulties working with Brock Lesnar, perhaps because the Beast was on another level. WWE couldn't make Mahal look like a credible opponent for Brock. After doing a little summer experiment, they realized that their rivalry wasn't working and they decided to bet on AJ Styles” - Road Dogg said.
According to Wrestling legend Road Dogg on The Wrestling Outlaws, it was Brock Lesnar himself who was responsible for canceling Mahal's push. According to the veteran, The Beast Incarnate didn't want to work with him: "So yeah, Brock [Lesnar] said, 'I'm not working with him [Jinder Mahal].'
He said that about several people by the way." A few days ago, the legendary Jim Ross recalled Lesnar’s landing in WWE: “Vince McMahon and I were talking outside the locker room and Brock was down the hall with Gerry Brisco.
Vince looked up and changed his expression as if he had seen a ghost. He asked me who that beast was and it was Brock Lesnar. It was love at first sight. We were sure that Lesnar would become one of the greatest ever. He was able to do anything in the ring.
Let's say he was our Michael Jordan. I can speculate. I think Paul said the same thing, that he was put out there to talk about Brock Lesnar ending the streak and I was the tool because I could wrestle."
