Brock Lesnar was given bad backstage advice

Brock Lesnar created an intimidating image of himself in the eyes of fans and peers during his long career in professional wrestling. We are undoubtedly talking about one of the most prominent figures in the modern era, having amassed a myriad of awards in WWE and beyond.

'The Beast' was destined from the start to make a splash in the sports entertainment business, but that fate came at a price. Despite his sudden rise in the early 2000s, Lesnar's run suddenly sold out in 2004, which led to his departure from the scene after WrestleMania 20.

During the latest edition of his famous podcast, Hall of Famer Jim Ross recalled the factors that contributed to Brock’s abandonment.

Jim Ross on Brock Lesnar

“Well, Brock Lesnar was really exhausted. He had received bad advice from some people close to him and his desire to play in the National Football League had manifested itself.

He has been cultivating that dream for many years ”- explained JR. “Curt Hennig and Kurt Angle contributed a lot to the backstage misinformation, sending out misleading messages that may have also played a role in Lesnar's choice.

It was obvious that Brock did not have cracks in his armor on the physical plane, but if others noticed that he was emotionally fragile and that he was in a world for which he was not prepared, here they crept into his weaknesses"- he added.

he. Everyone knows how the former Universal champion has never enjoyed spending too much time away from home. "He had some family problems at the time, he wanted to see his daughter grow up and spend more time with his wife.

The other guys were aware of how sensitive Brock was in that respect. I believe that some colleagues have taken advantage of his naivety by convincing him to leave," ruled Jim Ross. The Beast is now a long way from the ring since WrestleMania 36 ​​when he relinquished his title to Drew McIntyre and disrupted a reign of more shadow than light.

Ross made it clear to Brock Lesnar that WWE was not messing around with him regarding the payment, but the Beast Incarnate responded by hanging up on him. Ross stated that WWE officials were stunned that the situation had gotten so bad.

"Look, I didn't have a problem with him hanging up on me. He heard his answer - 'You are not getting any more money. We think we paid you fairly.' But it was not the phone call; I was thinking, thank god he was on the phone and not staring me down the gullet (laughs).

He is a little intimidating. So, that's how that worked out. We were really shocked that it had come to that."
