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 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 Ric Flair.

Ever since his initial return to the company in 2012, Brock Lesnar has been paid a ton of money as part of his contract. This has led to a lot of criticism from fans, who believe Lesnar’s sporadic appearances do not warrant the hefty salary he earns.

While speaking with Alfonso Castillo of Newsday, The Beast Incarnate talked about his passion for pro wrestling and stated that he treats wrestling like he is a prizefighter.


“I’ve put on some great matches in my day. And you don’t do that without having a passion for the squared circle. (…) I just found out that it was easier for me to go and recharge my batteries and go be who I really wanted to be and hide that from the world. It’s just who I am. I’m a private person. I approach my life and fighting and wrestling like this is a job. It’s a career. I’m a prizefighter. I get into the octagon or the ring, I do my business, and I do it well, and I get paid for it. And so I’m very passionate about the business.” 

We will have to see if Brock Lesnar will end up becoming both the WWE and Universal Champion at WrestleMania 38 in his match against Roman Reigns or not.
