When it comes to wrestling, there are few names as notorious as Brock Lesnar. He is known as “The Beast Incarnate,” and for good reason. With his unbeatable strength, incredible agility, and raw determination, Lesnar has become an icon in the world of wrestling.
Within the squared circle, the former University of Minnesota standout has achieved everything there is to achieve, and more. He is a ten-time world champion and still holds the record for being the youngest WWE Champion of all time, some 21 years after the fact. He is also a two-time Royal Rumble winner and a five-time WrestleMania main eventer, but he has a plethora of accomplishments outside of the ring as well.
Brock Lesnar is as legitimate as it gets. He is a former NCAA Division I heavyweight amateur wrestling champion. He then crossed over to the Ultimate Fighting Championship and became the UFC Heavyweight champion after just three fights.
But there is more to this famous wrestler than just his fighting skills. In this article, we are going to take a closer look at Brock Lesnar – his net worth, height, age, wife, bio, lifestyle, and accomplishments. Whether you are a die-hard fan or curious about this larger-than-life superstar, you will not want to miss this.
First, let us talk about Brock Lesnar’s net worth. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Lesnar is estimated to be worth around $25 million. That is certainly nothing to sneeze at. Lesnar has earned his fortune through his impressive wrestling career, as well as his time in the UFC.
He stated on the Pat McAfee show in February of last year that he was extremely savvy with his investments. Sometimes, gambling on American roulette games with websites like Bovada can be a smart investment, and one may come up trumps when playing. Lesnar did not invest in the casino industry however, he invested in land, and lots of it.
He currently lives on a 43-acre farm in Saskatchewan, Canada, many miles away from civilization. We will expand on why a little later.
Next up, let us talk about Lesnar’s physical attributes. The man is an absolute monster, standing at a towering 6’3″ tall and weighing in at around 280 pounds, his sheer size and strength make him a formidable opponent in the ring, in the Octagon, and on the mat.
He has proven repeatedly that he is not to be underestimated, even though some mixed-martial-arts pundits wrote him off following his debut defeat to Frank Mir in the UFC. Lesnar would go on to avenge that defeat at UFC 100 back in 2009 in what was at the time the highest-grossing event in company history. At 45 years of age, he has confirmed that his days in the UFC are finished forever, but within Vince McMahon’s wacky world of WWE, the Beast Incarnate is still one of the top stars, and has defeated newly-minted Hollywood star John Cena on numerous occasions.
When it comes to Lesnar’s personal life, he notoriously likes to keep himself to himself. It has been well documented that the 10-time world champion “doesn’t like people,” and he has said as much himself on the Steve Austin Podcast, which is available for viewing on the WWE Network. But we can provide you with some information as to the off-camera life that Mr. Lesnar leads.
He has been married to Rena Greek (aka Sable, a former WWE performer herself) since 2006, and the couple has two sons together, Turk and Duke. They generally keep a pretty low profile when it comes to their family life however, on the aforementioned Pat McAfee show, Lesnar stated that he is trying to raise his sons in a similar way to which he himself was brought up, by putting them to work on his farm, teaching them discipline and strength. Unfortunately, though, they will not be following in his footsteps, as the South Dakota-born star stated that neither of his sons is interested in wrestling, neither in an amateur sense nor professionally.
Outside of his personal life, Lesnar is known for living a pretty simple lifestyle. He grew up on a farm in South Dakota, and he is maintained a love for the outdoors and hunting throughout his life. To this day he still hunts, and he butchers his own meat. He has even partnered with YouTube duo The Bearded Butchers to release his own meat blend.
In Brock Lesnar’s immediate future, he has a ‘Nightmare’ on his hands in the form of Cody Rhodes. The Beast Incarnate will be facing off with the American Nightmare at the upcoming WWE Backlash pay-per-view streaming live from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Following that, who knows what the future holds for the former UFC kingpin.
Speaking to former UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier for ESPN in the build-up to the recent WrestleMania event, he stated that while he is currently enjoying his stint with WWE, he does not know how long he will continue to perform in the squared circle. So, whether you are a fan of professional wrestling or not, you should still appreciate what little time we have left of Brock Lesnar on our screens.
