WWE Didn’t Want to Sign Brock Lesnar Initially

Brock Lesnar has been a superstar in his entire WWE journey.

It would be hard to imagine WWE without him.

WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco recently said that the company was a bit hesitant to sign him.

Brisco said that this was because of the payment Lesnar demanded.

He said, "There was resistance. I don't know... Brock was asking for a lot of money. And looking back it seems kinda silly with the numbers."

Brisco mentioned that Lesnar asked for a six-figure payment.

During that time, Lesnar had just won the NCAA Division I Heavyweight Championship.

This made him high on demand.

Later Brisco introduced him to WWE and the rest is history.
