The Beast, as he’d later go on to be known, would start wrestling training during his high school days before making it into the WWE.
He made his television debut on the March 18, 2002, episode of Raw as a heel, and as they say, the rest is history.
Since then, he would go on to achieve many things whilst stepping foot inside the ring.
It’s fair to say he is one of the most iconic and marketable names in the history of the sport.
Elsewhere, Conor McGregor will go down as one of the biggest stars in the history of MMA, but would the two ever cross paths?
With Lesnar weighing well over 200lbs and McGregor weighing around 155lbs, there’s no way the pair would fight, right?
In a video posted online, a reporter asked Lesnar about the prospect of facing the Irishman in the WWE.
Lesnar wasn’t particularly impressed by the question, saying: “I take s**** bigger than that kid, alright?
“I know you guys all play f****** video games, and you live in this false sense of f****** reality and s***,” Lesnar continued.
“I’m 200 and ninety f****** pounds. Alright, this guy is 145 pounds, that’s if he’s lucky and gets up and eats his f****** wheaties, okay.”
Due to the fact that McGregor is such a big star, the WWE would welcome him with open arms. However, a fight with Lesnar is never likely to happen.
Predominantly a WWE Superstar, Lesnar plied his trade in the sport of MMA, making his debut back in 2007.
In just his fourth professional fight, he would go on to win the heavyweight belt against Randy Couture.
All in all, Lesnar will always be well-known for the way he would catch the eye of many fans across the globe.
