• Brock Lesnar Turned Down A $45 Million WWE Contract In 2004

As we all know, Brock Lesnar was “The Next Big Thing” in WWE back in 2002, but he soon left the company to pursue a career in NFL in 2004.

Vince McMahon obviously wanted Lesnar to stay as he was the top guy in WWE back then. Vince offered Lesnar a big money contract, but Lesnar still rejected it.

According to ESPN, Lesnar turned down a 7 year contract for a total amount of $45 million back in 2004.

Lesnar returned to WWE in 2012 and is the highest paid wrestler in the company. Below is what his current WWE deal looks like:

“Re-Signed a 12 month licensing and image rights contract for $500,000 plus $100,000 per appearance, $500,000 per PPV and $1.5 million per Saudi show. Expires May 2020.”
