Brock Lesnar has made it clear to the world, the place, where he actually belongs. It has been over two decades that he has dedicated his life to a world of action sports and signed for the two biggest brands – UFC and WWE. Once he stepped inside the ring, he never turned his back ever again. With the pace that he is going, he seems to have no plans to stop.
Brock started wrestling while he was in his college and excelled beyond everyone’s expectations. This made him one of the top names in mature wrestling and his credibility was soon realized by the WWE ring announcer Jim Ross. WWF then signed him and sent him to their developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). Within a year, Lesnar made his television debut leaving everyone jaw-dropped.
However, he didn’t feel very comfortable with the environment the company had and quit the company to join New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). However, this wasn’t the ultimate destination for him since the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welcomed the great talent with open hands. His performance was highly recognized by the company and fans and took him to the pinnacle of success in a short span of time.
Brock Lesnar’s time in UFC helped him attain massive popularity. He went ahead to become the UFC Heavyweight Champion quite quickly and raised the bar for his future performances. The push that he got from the company was enthralling. The audience started demanding much more from him. However, he couldn’t fulfill all those and was soon back inside the WWE ring.
How did he come to WWE?
The demand for Brock Lesnar knew no bounds and there were constant negotiations between WWE and UFC to keep him signed. Brock took his first retirement from UFC and got back to WWE who offered him full-time pay with part-time work. This was a tiebreaker for Lesnar who chose WWE over UFC. However, he was granted a one-day off opportunity by WWE to make a special appearance at UFC 200.

His popularity had gained so much pace that the management made him responsible to break the iconic streak of The Undertaker.
