Number Ten

His prior issues with addiction. And speaking of things Brock Lesnar kept quiet about you’ve probably heard of some fighters depending on some form of painkiller as a crutch to push themselves through parts of their career in professional wrestling where you’re performing over 300 times a year traveling and rushed form from city to city on a nightly basis that need for relief is pretty high.

[Dialogue]:

Brock Lesnar:

“There’s like two years I don’t remember my life.”

NFL Reporter:

“Why don’t you think you remember that period very well?”

Brock Lesnar:

“Vodka and pain pills.”

There’s been plenty of notable wrestlers to deal with and eventually squander their addictions or unfortunately fall tragically to them. But one of the lesser-known victims is Brock Lesnar. At his peak of pain during his initial run with the WWE the Beast claims he had been downing an entire bottle of vodka a day, while also mixing them with painkillers whenever necessary. Apparently taking a few hundred vicodin per month. It’s a terrifying thought just how much potential damage the man was doing to his insides, but if you know how intense the pro wrestling grind can be, you might understand where he was coming from.

Brock Lesnar:

“I wrestled with my MCL blown out and three broken ribs and I wrestled that way for six months because I was just became the champion.”

Number Nine

He’s partially colorblind did you know that 8% of all men in the world suffer from color blindness and that only about 98% of all color blindness cases are simply an inability to the colors red and green. Well Brock Lesnar already falls in the smallest possible percentile of men when it comes to athleticism, only makes sense he’s in the vision minority as well. As he indeed suffers from this partial color blindness. Just something to keep in mind the next time he pops up and you see him batter a man until blood comes out – Brock maybe it just looks like excessive sweat.

Number Eight

He joined the National Guard at age 17. Brock Lesnar didn’t just randomly get into the grinds during his 20s… he’s had this fighting spirit burning inside of him as long as he can remember. And at the age of just 17 he enlisted himself into the National Guard. His intent was to be one of the noble fighters out on the frontlines, but due to the aforementioned color blindness he was deemed a potential liability on the frontlines and hazardous for the field that he really wanted to work with explosives and ended up being assigned to a desk position in an office instead. unfortunately for Brock working on computers was never really a strong suit and he lost his job after failing a typing test.

Number Seven

He was in the NFL. Brock Lesnar didn’t just amateur wrestle, professionally wrestle and professionally fight, he also professionally played football. Jesus that’s a resume. No wonder everyone is paying on the big ones. After leaving the WWE in 2004 Brock decided to pursue his former dreams of making it to the NFL citing that wanting to turn 40 and wondering whether or not he could have made it. He made an impressive showing in the NFL Combine but unfortunately was crashed into by a minivan while riding on his motorbike, giving him a few injuries notably a groin injury that would persist throughout and ultimately ruin his NFL career. Despite this he still put on impressive showings and multiple workouts and caught the attention and eventually made his way to the Minnesota Vikings. Lesnar played multiple preseason games but within just half a year was released from the team. Still made it onto the training cards.

Brock Lesnar:

“Tough to get my hands dirty, always fight here, oh he pushed me off him and next
thing you know, yeah.”

Number Six

Just how insane his athleticism really is? I know we’ve gone over his resume already and you’re probably thinking yeah D Wickett we get it the dude is an insane talent. He can play ball, he can fight, he can fake fight, the dude’s got it all. What you might not realize especially if you’ve only seen him in the UFC is just how unfathomable that athleticism really is despite his immense size Lesnar was always one of the most shockingly quick professional wrestlers on WWE’s roster and was so talented that he was able to perform a move called a shooting star press. Never heard of it? Looks a little something like this. Unfortunately he mainly used that move in WWE’s developmental territories and when it came to the big stage people pretty much only remember this instance where he sort of lands directly on top of his head. Can’t fake that.

Number Five

He won his first match via knockout. It’s common knowledge that pro wrestling matches end one of two ways.Either with both shoulders pinned to the mat for three seconds or tapping via submission. Brock Lesnar must have been predicting his own future career in the UFC during his debut, because his first match ended in neither. No he wasn’t disqualified, counted out or killed; instead he beat up his first opponent a man named Jeff Hardy so badly that he legit could not compete anymore. Deeming it a victory by a knockout something I genuinely don’t think has ever happened since in the company.

Number Four

He was the biggest box-office draw for three years. And that’s in the UFC not WWE. When Brock Lesnar made another pivotal transition from sport to sport in 2008 and decided to sign his name to the UFC’s dotted, it had everyone talking. Not only was his contract one of the most lucrative and highest paying in the company’s history, but Brock would go on to also heavily help Dana White rake in the cash.

Brock Lesnar:

“They are athletic and those guys were in great shape, but I wouldn’t call it competition. Coming over to mixed martial arts it’s a big jump.”

In fact if it weren’t for an Irishman by the name of Conor McGregor, he just might wipe the floor when it comes to dominating the charts when it comes to the highest-selling pay-per-views in UFC history. But even in an era with more fans eyes on the product than ever and a man like McGregor dominating the media as insanely as he did, Brock Lesnar’s main event title bout against Frank Mir over a decade ago still sits as the fourth highest selling UFC pay-per-view of all time with all of his other bouts drawing in very high ratings as well.

Number Three

Hunting fines. Brock lesner is an active member of the National Rifle Association and as such is a big ole fan of hunting. Even showing up at one of their meetings in 2011 which given his stance on public appearances and the media especially, shows just how much he’s into it. That makes sense. He grew up on an open farm in South Dakota, after all it’s what he grew up loving. But in December of 2011 Lesnar was charged on multiple hunting infractions during a trip to Alberta from the year prior. The charges were dropped but Lesnar ultimately pleaded guilty to the illegal tagging of an animal. In the end Brock paid off a seventeen hundred twenty five dollar fine and was given a six-month hunting suspension.

He nearly died of diverticulosis. Throughout his initial year fighting for the UFC, Brock Lesnar was experiencing some random pain even when he wasn’t fighting. Confused about the odd sickness he kept on feeling, Lesnar checked in with doctors multiple times and even after a year nothing was really coming of it. Finally he snapped and went to a professional doctor and was diagnosed with a severe case of diverticulosis. For those who don’t know about it this infection can lead to inflammation of pouches that’ll form inside of the intestines; explaining why Brock’s stomach had randomly started having so much pain . According to the doctors only a few more weeks before being diagnosed and treated and Brock might have just been dead.
