Almost makes the football team, the Minnesota Vikings. Then he says hey, I’m going to fight in the UFC and become the UFC Heavyweight Champion and then go back into the business He is still, after more than 20 years, the biggest draw, him in Roman, in the business today. So Brock Lesnar has had one of the most amazing, distinct runs in the company’s history, and no one will ever do it the way Brock Lesnar did, whether it’s Suplex City or the Octagon, or whatever it is that Brock does. babyface run he had right before Wrestlemania 38, when you have this big mass of an alpha male and he shows that vulnerability and people just yell at him. So just a charismatic force of nature.”
