Brock Lesnar is an unstoppable, unbeatable, immovable force in the WWE right now.
No one has really been able to stop Lesnar in recent months and he only doesn't have his hands on the WWE's crown jewel thanks to a Money in the Bank cash-in from Seth Rollins and the return of The Undertaker at Battleground.
However, it has been revealed that things could have been oh so different.

According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, here via SEScoops, before he made his debut some members of the WWE Creative Team had plans for Lesnar to be a gay hero.
No, you read that right, The Beast Incarnate was nearly an icon for the LGBT Community, which is absolutely mind-boggling.
The idea apparently came from two WWE magazine writers, one of whom was Brian Solomon. The idea - which was pitched toStephanie McMahon - was the notion of a wrestling character that was an unstoppable and masculine hero, who would go on to reveal himself to be gay after winning the title.
Lesnar would be a mega babyface hero, breaking down the negative stereotypes of homosexuality that previously existed in the pro wrestling business.
In this writer's humble opinion, this idea would have sunk like a stone; and probably taken Lesnar's career with it.
First of all you have the WWE fans, who will openly boo wrestlers simply for being from another country or like Muhammad Hassan, who was simply a Muslim wrestler that was tired of all Muslim's being treated badly by the American populace in this post-9/11 world.
And there is the WWE Creative Team who come up with terrible storylines like they're paid to be terrible. The WWE writers would have made Lesnar a joke, using the homosexuality part as a joke or a way to create comedic moments.
Darren Young has proven that gay wrestlers don't need to have gay characters, sexuality shouldn't come into storylines at all.
