Brock Lesner Biography
Lesnar dominated Big Ten collegiate wrestling like no other athlete had from late 1998 to mid 2000. Dominating opponents left and right, he earned a reputation for disposing oppenents as quickly as they came, earning nicknames such as "Terminator" or "RoboCop", or insert your favorite indestructible force, 'cause it's been used.
Lesnar grew up on a farm near Webster, South Dakota. He took up wrestling and went from a 3rd place finish at the South Dakota prep championships to a 33-0 record in his senior year of high school. Choosing minute Bismarck Junior College in North Dakota, Brock first earned his keep by winning the Heavyweight bracket in the North Dakota State University's annual Bison Open Tournament by beating Brent Boeschans of Minnesota, a school that was/is a major force in the world of NCAA wrestling. In 1998, Brock won his 2nd straight Bison Open title, and became the Heavyweight (285 lbs.) bracket champion in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), just before BJC discontinued its wrestling program due to financial cuts following the 1997-98 school year. Minnesota wrestling coach J Robinson watched Brock in awe at the Finals of the NJCAA and managed to sign him to transfer to Minnesota. In just 2 years at BJC, Brock had accumulated a 56-3 record.
Now as a member of the Minnesota Gophers, Brock seized the attention of Big Ten and NCAA wrestling fans with his chiseled, ripped physique and a Bill Goldberg-like dominance of opponents, going 24-1 in his first year, with his only loss coming from Iowa State's Trent Hynek). Wading through the competition, Minnesota won the Big Ten wrestling title in 1999, ending a 25 year win streak of arch-rival Iowa. Unfortunately, Lesnar lost in the finals of the NCAA Championships to Stephen Neal of Cal State-Bakersfield in a 3-2 decision that cost Minnesota a chance to be National Champions; arch-rival Iowa won instead.
In 2000, Brock and company wanted to prove that 1999 was no fluke. As he had in the past, Lesnar tossed aside all opponents, coasting to a 26-1 record (with his defeat at the hands of a close 5-3 decision from Iowa's Wes Hand) and ranked as the #1 heavyweight in the Big Ten. Brock avenged his loss by destroying the Heavyweight bracket at the NCAA finals, then defeating Hand with a 3-2 decision in overtime with an escape in the final match, achieving a lifelong dream by becoming an NCAA heavyweight champion. Overall, his career wrestling record is 106-5 (56-3 at BJC, 50-2 at Minnesota).
Now the WWF came calling. Recalling his many trash-talkings of Iowa and other various schools, and with the fast success of former Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle, Brock was signed to a training deal with the WWF. He is currently in Kentucky, training for seasoning and character development work in the Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVH) organization, a WWF farm federation headed by Jim Cornette. He has begun to get in the WWF ring now, and had increased his body size and mass. This man is going to go places!
