Brock Lesnar is one of the most feared wrestler in WWE. Brock Lesnar was not only a WWE Champion but also a UFC Champion. Brock Lesnar usually doesn’t have lot of interaction with fans. It is rumoured that Brock Lesnar walked out of SmackDown when he heard about Vince McMahon stepping down as Chairman.

Brock Lesnar quits WWE in 2004, his last match was against Goldberg at WrestleMania 20. Brock Lesnar returned to WWE in 2012.

Kurt Angle in an interview with Inside The Ropes talked about Brock Lesnar, and how once Brock thought of quitting WWE because of travelling around the world.

Oh the tortuous match between Goldberg and Brock. How would you like to be in that f*cking match, when everyone in the arena is booing you and tell you that you are f*cking boring and go home. Wow man! Ok, this is what happened. We were in South Africa, and Brock comes up to me and says, Hey, I hate f*cking travelling. I can’t take this anymore, I can’t travel overseas all the time. I like to be home and I like to hunt and fish.

I’m like well, Brock you are a simple man. He said, Listen, I think what I’m gonna do. I said what are you going to do Brock? He said, I’m going to try out for the NFL. I said, Why are you going to do that? You have a job with the WWE. He said, Because I hate f*cking travelling. In the NFL, you only travel 8 weeks of the year. So every weekend, you go to another city, but it’s only 8 times. The rest of the dates, I’ll be at home, fishing and hunting.

I said, Okay, so what are you going to tell Vince? He said, I don’t know, that’s why I am asking you. I said, Well I would tell him after WrestleMania. He asked why and I said well because you’re going to have to do the f*cking job at WrestleMania if you are quitting now, and you are wrestling Goldberg. If you want to win at WrestleMania, don’t tell him until after WrestleMania. He goes, Gotcha.

We go back, we go straight to SmackDown. He goes up to Vince and he says, Vince, I want to try out for the NFL. I was like oh f*ck man, he just f*cked himself. So, next week is WrestleMania, and what happened? Brock Lesnar did the job against Goldberg. It would have been the other way if Brock Lesnar had smartened up, but he didn’t because he is an idiot.
