Brock Lesnar is a multi-time World Champion who dominated the world of professional wrestling and combat sports. Lesnar broke into the WWE main roster scene in 2002 and wasted no time in asserting his dominance. Now it appears footage of Lesnar flying his parents to watch him beat The Rock at the 2002 SummerSlam has resurfaced.

Back in 2002, Brock Lesnar made his main roster debut on RAW after WrestleMania X8. He became the #1 Contender for The Rock’s Undisputed WWE Championship and challenged him at SummerSlam.

Brock Lesnar would go on to defeat The Rock in the main event of SummerSlam 2002. On the September 7, 2002 episode of WWE Confidential, it was disclosed that Brock Lesnar actually flew his parents to the event in order to watch Lesnar defeat The Rock. Naturally, his parents were elated when their son beat The Rock to become the new champion.

As Ringside News exclusively reported, Brock Lesnar did not appear for the Payback Premium Live Event. It is likely he will be back in time for WrestleMania 40 in 2024 as he’s being featured in the advertisements for the event, so we’ll have to see how WWE will plan his return next year.
