Brock Lesnar was absent from WWE television after dropping the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. That changed at WWE SummerSlam last year, where he made his shocking return to WWE television and confronted Roman Reigns. Brock officially came back as a babyface, much to the delight of fans.
Brock Lesnar made his WWE debut back in 2002 and he was immediately booked as an unstoppable force who ran roughshod over talents in the company. This includes legends such as Hulk Hogan.
At the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view, Brock Lesnar won the WWE Championship after defeating Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Bobby Lashley. It seems he has now tied with two WWE legends for a huge record.
WWE took to their official Twitter and revealed that Brock Lesnar now has the fifth-most WWE Title reigns in history and is tied with ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan.
“With his win at #WWEDay1, @BrockLesnar is now tied for the 5th most WWE Championship reigns of all time
Lesnar also broke a record held by Hulk Hogan as well. We will have to wait and see how Bobby Lashley vs Brock Lesnar will turn out to be at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 29th this year.
