When Brock entered WWE, he brought with him a championship amateur career and an overwhelming physique. The impressive
combination caused many to believe they were looking for "The Next Big Thing." Over the course of his WWE career, Lesnar
proved those predictions to be correct.
Under the tutelage of Paul Heyman, Lesnar made an immediate impact upon his 2002 debut. A mere three months into his career,
he defeated Rob Van Dam to win the prestigious King of the Ring tournamnet. Two months after that, he beat The Rock
for the WWE Championship. In short, Lesnar accomplished more in half a year than most Superstars do during an entire career.
Over the next two years, Lesnar continues to shine, especially against Undertaker. At No Mercy 2002, he defeated
the "Deadman" inside the demonic Hell in a Cell. At the following year's event, Lesnar beat Undertaker in a Biker Chain
Match. He even last eliminated the "Deadman" to win the 2003 Royal Rumble. With his victory in the Rumble,
Lesnar earned the opportunity to challenge Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania XIX.
With visions of making it big in the NFL, Lesnar left WWE in 2004. While fans never saw him on the gridiron, he soon
announced he was starting a career in mixed martial arts. Before illness derailed his career, fans were treated to a
taste of his past in October 2010, when Brock engaged in a chilling staredown with the Undertaker after a bout.
On April 2, 2012, Brock made a shocking return the night after WrestleMania XXVIII and attacked John Cena.

Like the The Rock during his various stops with WWE in recent years, there is some resentment backstage toward Brock Lesnar.
Wrestler resentment toward "The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment" was based on myriad of reasons, including
his part-time status, acting too "Hollywood" backstage, believing he returned just to promote his movies, and his
overwhelming muscularity. In the case of Lesnar, many of the complaints stem from Lesnar appearing on a part-time basis.
Unlike most all WWE talent, Lesnar isn't on the road on a weekly basis, never works house shows and to a degree, comes
and goes as he pleases. While this has been the case since his return to the company in 2012, the heat is greater now than
in the past when business was stronger.
The WWE is a business first and foremost, and whether the Superstars backstage like it or not, he will continue to be
billed in the main event and featured on a limited basis because it's "best for business," as Triple H often says. If he
appeared on Raw and SmackDown every single week, it would not be long before became "just another guy,"
with his value diminished.
What many WWE Superstars also fail to see is that the numbers should ascend with Lesnar drawing more attention to the
product. More interest in WWE means more money will be spent on the WWE Network, which means greater paychecks for everyone
