Brock Lesnar has had some incredible matches over the years, with the Alpha Male going stars such as The Undertaker, Triple H, Kurt Angle, The Rock and John Cena to name a few. Having said that, the Beast has lost to stars including Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre.

Speaking of Brock’s match against McIntyre, the two squared off in the main event of WrestleMania 36 Night 2. Because the event took place at the height of the pandemic in 2020, there were zero fans in attendance. Brock put over Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship that night.


Speaking to Daniel Cormier, Brock Lesnar revealed he thought he had retired at WrestleMania 36. Brock said his contract with WWE was at the height of the pandemic and he truly believed it was the end for him after 20 years in the business at the time.

“In 2020, I retired and was gonna be just done because I had my twenty years in. COVID hit. My contract was up. I had my very first wrestling match in Hamel, Minnesota, in an empty garage. And there I was twenty years later, fighting Drew McIntyre in front of no people for the WWE Championship. And I was like, ‘You know what? It has come full circle. And I was truly done.”

Elsewhere during the interview, Brock talked about his WrestleMania 39 match with Omos. The Beast said he liked the match when it was first pitched to him and he thought it could be his way of giving back to the business.
