If Brock Lesnar’s career were to end right now, he’d have the unique distinction of being an NCAA, WWE and UFC World Heavyweight champion, as well as having been the one superstar to also halt the Undertaker’s legendary WrestleMania winning streak.
For what it’s worth, the “Beast” also enjoyed a deep run in the Minnesota Vikings’ training camp, proving his freakish, almost 1-of-1 athletic ability.
However, if you think that Brock is the type to sit at home and bask in all his dominant glory, think again. Appearing on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Monday, Lesnar said that he holds cash to a higher value than his legacy.
“I’m not much for legacy,” Lesnar said on SportsCenter, as reported by Fox Sports. “I guess people have their way of remembering what I did. I’m not about accomplishments. I don’t have a trophy room. I don’t have any symbolic things. I’m not a sentimental guy. I couldn’t even tell you where my UFC titles are or my WWE championships or my NCAA plaque, my heavyweight plaque. I don’t even know where that is right now. But I do know one thing — how much money’s in my bank account.”
Whether it was Lesnar’s original run with WWE, his splashy jump to the UFC or re-signing with WWE, Lesnar has put his money first. How else would you be able to explain the catered and limited appearance-laden deal that Brock was able to strike with Vince McMahon and the sports entertainment company?
Despite not caring much about leaving a legacy behind, Lesnar will be part of the main draw this Sunday night at WrestleMania 32, when he faces the “Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose in what’s bound to be a thrilling no holds barred fight before a possible 100,000-plus fans at ATT Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Although he’s clear about putting cash over legacy, Brock did mention that he’s “not a sentimental guy.” He wasn’t sentimental dropping the Undertaker with three F5s to finally put an end to his WrestleMania winning streak, and he won’t be sentimental against Ambrose, either.
Arlington should be the site in which Ambrose gets taken on a nonstop tour through Suplex City.
