• Old School WWF/WWE Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF/WWE Veteran “The Next Big Thing” Brock Lesnar celebrates his 43rd birthday today.
Brock Lesnar was a World Wrestling Federation developmental wrestler, who in 2000 started to wrestle for their developmental promotion Ohio Valley Wrestling down in Louisville, Kentucky, before having his official WWF debut on Monday Night RAW in 2002.
His biggest time came after the WWF/E name change during the Ruthless Aggression Era, where he became a multiple time WWE Heavyweight Champion and by far the #1 Heel of the SmackDown! brand, before leaving the WWE after WrestleMania XX to pursue a football career in the NFL, playing for the Minnesota Vikings in 2004.
When that didn’t work out (as he only played in several pre-season games), Brock got into the sport of mixed martial arts and eventually became the UFC Heavyweight Champion in 2008.
Lesnar ended up returning to the WWE in 2012, though this time as a part-timer / special attraction.
Despite popular misconception, he’s still considered a huge box-office draw these day, thus clearly justifying the millions of dollars Vince pays him for his stints.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROCK LESNAR!

The two wrestlers were very unhappy about their booking on the WWE main roster, which is why they had asked for their release.
While speaking to Inside The Ropes, Harwood explained why WWE CEO Vince McMahon apologized to them in their last meeting.
Below is what Hardwood said:
“We talked with Vince. Our last meeting with Vince, he apologized because we had been sending all these pitches in and he had never seen them because the writers were too afraid to approach him with different ideas and he apologized for the system being broken.”
