Lesnar Speaks Out Against The WWE Lifestyle Again

Posted by Tim Brown in WWE News

was recently featured on the front page of the Star Tribune out of Minneapolis, Minnesota in an interview which touched on his life with WWE. The article notes that Lesnar was paid $450,000 by the UFC for his fight with Randy Couture, and by the next day he was back on his 40-acre ranch in Alexandria, Minnesota where he farms corn. The article says he doesn’t own a computer and dislikes attention. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On deciding to sign with WWE: “Here I was wondering how I was going to buy myself a beer and a steak after the national tournament, reaching down and pulling out lint. It was pretty easy. Go with a sure thing. And the sure thing at the time was becoming a pro wrestler.”

On the WWE lifestyle: “You’re in a different city every night. You can be whoever you want to be. You can sit in your hotel room and rot to death or you can go out and … just use your imagination. And I didn’t use my imagination, I was living it. Really, I was a young man, 22 years old. Bank accounts overflowing and everything else.”

The article notes that Lesnar lives an extremely private life, and most locals know to leave him alone. The UFC champ reiterated this by saying “Our dream is just to go home and shut our gate.”
