Brock Lesnar made the history of this business, establishing himself as one of the best superstars of all time. The Beast surprised fans and insiders during his last stint in WWE, in which he showed a new side of his character.
The former Universal champion has made himself more likeable in the eyes of the people, so much so that he has received the support of the WWE Universe during his feud with Roman Reigns. The Beast went all out to dethrone the 'Tribal Chief', but the former Shield member had the upper hand at both WrestleMania 38 and SummerSlam.
Roman has been the undisputed leader of the company for a couple of years and his reign seems destined to continue at least until WrestleMania 39. Brock has instead resumed his heated feud with Bobby Lashley, managing to defeat The All Mighty at Crown Jewel.
Kurt Angle reflects on Brock Lesnar
In a long interview granted to Bill Apter for Sportskeeda, Kurt Angle spent beautiful words for Brock Lesnar: “The Beast is one of the most fearsome opponents I've ever faced. We are talking about an athlete who is capable of destroying any rival who gets in front of him.
There has never been anyone more dominant than him in this business. He is a dangerous individual. He wears you down with Suplexes and – if you get caught in his grip – you have no escape. I was always trying to counter his suplexes with my own suplexes.
I succeeded in most cases. I beat Lesnar for the world title at SummerSlam 2003, if I remember correctly. He took his revenge at WrestleMania 19. Brock Lesnar is one of the best wrestlers he's ever worked with." The former Olympic gold medalist ruled out a return to the ring: “I really don't think I'll go back to fighting.
I had major knee surgery a few months ago and have to be very cautious. Although I hate to say it, I have to admit that I'm not the athlete I used to be." Brock Lesnar was once heavily influenced by WWE legend Mr. Perfect's five-word career advice.
"Curt taught me something that sticks with me to this day—in the wrestling business, you have to 'Get in to get out!' I can still hear him say the line. Curt knew the pro wrestling business was built on a pile of people who had been used for everything they were worth, and then dumped on the side of the road.
I’m not saying that’s right or wrong. I’m just saying that’s how it is. Since that’s the score in pro wrestling, Curt came up with the idea that the only way to keep your sanity, or your health, was to 'get in to get out.' "
