• “I was almost bankrupt in my first run” – Brock Lesnar

During his appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, current WWE Champion Brock Lesnar talked about being wise with his money now, but that wasn’t the case 20 years ago when he was “The Next Big Thing” in WWE.

Below is what The Beast said:

“I don’t have to do this. Okay? I’ve been really wise and I’m doing it because I want to. And I’m not gloating, I just, I’ve been really good with money. Yeah, so it hasn’t always been that way though. I learned from a lot of people. I was almost bankrupt in my first run.

I just signed a big deal with Vince. I mean a big deal. Back then, 20 years ago was a lot of guaranteed money. And so then I’m like, 6 months later I’m like, ‘yeah, go screw yourself, Vince’. He was a little chapped. I get it now. Made an investment here.

So, but I had to do that and he understood that. I had to leave. I had to go out and, I wasn’t done yet. You know, if I wouldn’t have left I wouldn’t have been, you know, in the UFC and all that stuff.

When I made my name, I paved my own road. You know, so, came back and established, this is what I want, this is how I’m gonna do it, and I’m very fortunate.”
