WWE Champion Brock Lesnar might have made a fortune from fighting but he has revealed that his childhood fights with his brothers caused some carnage.
Lesnar was a guest on The Pat McAfee Show where he gave a rare interview, discussing his life and career. During the discussion, The Beast Incarnate discussed his youth and what it was like growing up with two older brothers that enjoyed a fight:
“I was fighting as a kid. The local people from Webster, South Dakota will tell you the Lesnar family were fighters. I was six years younger than my two older brothers who were getting out of jail on Monday mornings and going to school because of street fights. I grew up with that stigma.”
“We went to street dances, I went there to fight. That’s what we did. That’s what I did, anyway. Then it was girls and have a couple of drinks. My mom said, ‘You have to make some money with this stuff.’ It put my mom and dad through hell.”
Brock Lesnar then revealed that when he was old enough to take on his brothers, he destroyed both them and some household furniture:
“We were fighting all the time. My brothers were fighting and it was World War 3. I fought my older brothers, put them through kitchen tables when I finally grew up and had enough of their sh*t. I was probably 18. I put my brother through the china cabinet. My mom and dad just cracked a beer, it was, ‘ah, this needed to happen.”
Lesnar did take his mother’s advice and has made a career of fighting, reaching the top of both UFC and WWE. The seven-time WWE Champion will headline yet another WrestleMania when he takes on Universal Champion Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 38.
