Making his debut in 2002, Brock Lesnar changed the landscape of sports entertainment to a huge extent. No other sportsman in history had this much impact on the MMA and WWE circuit, simultaneously. If that’s not all then, he also tried hands by playing football in the NFL in his emerging days.
Named Brock Edward Lesnar, the six-time WWE Champion was raised at a dairy farm in Webster, South Dakota. He had two younger brothers named Troy and Chad and a younger sister in Brandi. All the children worked on the farm as their daily routine and hence Brock has been a born farmer.

Brock Lesnar was commissioned into the army of the National Guard at the age of just 17. He was assigned to an office but then his red-green color blindness was deemed hazardous to his duties and he got relieved after serving in the military for a short tenure. He also failed a computer test during the initial procedure.

Brock Lesnar once worked as a demolition man
Before getting his big break in the WWE, Brock Lesnar attended different types of jobs and one of them is working as a laborer at an REA power company. He ended up working in the company after arriving at home during his summer break from Bismarck State College.

Afterward, Brock Lesnar captured a wrestling scholarship from the University of Minnesota. After moving to the city, he had to pay rent for his staying and hence he applied for a job at a construction company as a demolition man. After graduating with the WWE, he already ended up signing with the WWE.
Being a mainstream sporting lover at heart, Brock Lesnar was tired of professional wrestling within just a couple of years. After wrestling Goldberg at Wrestlemania 20 in 2004, he quit WWE and started playing NFL for the Minnesota Vikings. After playing a few pre-season games, he was released after just a month.
After enjoying a short stint at NJPW, UFC signed him to a contract in 2007 and the rest is history. He is one of the most dominated UFC Heavyweight Champions in history who retired in 2011 and eventually came back to WWE in 2012. (info courtesy Ringside News)
