Brock Lesnar has dominated WWE every time he’s been a part of the company throughout his career. Lesnar's first run lasted from around 2002 to 2004, where he spent most of his time in the world title picture. Following a long absence, Brock returned with even more star power in 2012, primarily thanks to a stint in UFC as one of the biggest draws in the fighting world.
WWE made Lesnar the face of the company despite his part-time status. Brock usually runs through everyone on the entire roster with relative ease. Getting the most money to deliver the least amount of work has made him a polarizing figure. Lesnar’s entire career has been full of horrible moments, both kayfabe and real, that have earned him a controversial reputation. Find out just which ranks the lowest when looking at the ten worst things Brock Lesnar has done in wrestling.
10 Attacking Dominic Mysterio
The most recent instance of Brock Lesnar’s dastardly actions featured him destroying Rey Mysterio and his son Dominic. Lesnar ruined Mysterio’s opportunity for the Universal Championship by interrupting him and delivering a brutal beatdown.
Things got worse when Brock grabbed Dominic in the first row and dragged him over the guardrail. Rey's son received a vicious attack by Lesnar to send a statement in the season premiere episode of Raw. Cain Velasquez debuted the following show to avenge the Mysterio family following such a horrible attack.
9 Heath Slater's kids
Heath Slater’s 2016 push saw him trying to get signed to Raw or SmackDown after no one picked him in the brand split. One episode of Raw featured Slater confronting Brock Lesnar to hopefully earn a contract.
Slater cut a heartfelt promo about doing whatever was necessary to provide for his kids. Lesnar responded by saying he didn’t care about Slater’s kids, along with a big expletive to add a more ruthless tone. The aftermath saw Brock deliver a few F5s to further humiliate Heath.
8 Throwing A car into the audience
The feud between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins in 2015 featured the heel Rollins trying to sneak his way out of having to face Lesnar. Upon the match being booked, Lesnar decided to send a message to his opponent by targetting Rollins' brand-new expensive car.
Rollins stood in the ring as Brock destroyed Seth’s car with an ax. At one point, Lesnar flung the car door off the stage and almost into the audience, which could have injured someone. Luckily, no one was hurt, but WWE could have been hit with a huge lawsuit.
7 Ending John Cena's Mystique
John Cena was the most protected star in WWE for almost a decade. The end of Cena’s time on top came when he faced Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam 2014.
Lesnar essentially squashed Cena in a one-sided contest to win the title and start his reign of dominance. The match was originally expected to see Daniel Bryan get squashed in the role, but his injury forced him to relinquish the title. Cena was the sacrificial lamb as Brock ended the mystique WWE spent a decade cultivating.
6 Getting physical with Braun Strowman
Braun Strowman was booked as a rare credible threat against Brock Lesnar, but the matches never showed that. One specific moment in a triple threat between Lesnar, Strowman, and Kane basically spelled the end of Braun's time as a genuine challenger for the title.
The Royal Rumble triple threat match saw Brock delivering stiff shots to the face of Braun. Strowman confirmed things got real between the two after Lesnar felt Braun was getting too physical. Brock probably could have handled the situation better.
5 Breaking Triple H's arm
The feud between Brock Lesnar and Triple H was quite disappointing, with their three matches all failing to live up to the dream match expectations. WWE tried establishing Lesnar’s kimura submission as deadly by having him “break” Triple H’s arm on multiple occasions.
The injury wrote Triple H off television twice in as many years at the hands of Lesnar. It was done to make Brock look strong and take out a legend with his vicious submission. This angle may not have succeeded in the way WWE wanted, but it allowed Lesnar to deliver some of his worst actions in the ring.
4 Destroying Hulk Hogan
Lesnar's early push featured him getting quite a few statement victories over relevant talents. Hulk Hogan put Lesnar over in impressive fashion shortly before Brock’s eventual WWE Championship title shot against the Rock.
Lesnar put Hogan in a bear hug submission that destroyed him. The match saw Hogan getting bloody during Brock’s various attacks. At the end of the match, Lesnar smeared Hogan’s blood over his chest like a bear over his prey in the woods.
3 WrestleMania match with Dean Ambrose
The WrestleMania 32 match between Brock Lesnar and Dean Ambrose was expected to be a classic. WWE gave it the No DQ stipulation, possibly hoping the duo could steal the show in front of the all-time biggest wrestling crowd.
Lesnar easily defeated Ambrose in a disappointing match that featured zero moments where the latter looked like he stood a chance. Interviews have revealed Ambrose felt Brock was lazy and had no interest in putting together a compelling match. The end result was a disappointing WrestleMania performance.
2 Brutally bloodying Randy Orton
Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar had a rare dream match at SummerSlam 2016. Despite both men starting at the same time in 2002, they never faced off and, by the time the match took place, both had already reached legendary status.
WWE allowed it to main event the show, but the contest was just uncomfortable to watch. Lesnar decimated Orton in one of the bloodiest matches in recent WWE history. The elbows to the head from Brock had Orton bleeding buckets. Chris Jericho even confronted Lesnar backstage for working so recklessly regarding the results.
1 Ending The Undertaker's streak
Wrestling fans all over the world will always remember where they were when The Undertaker’s undefeated WrestleMania streak ended at the hands of Brock Lesnar. WrestleMania XXX remains an all-time memorable event due to the stunned silence of the audience after the streak ended.
Lesnar broke the heart of every longtime wrestling fan with a connection to Undertaker’s storied history. It started the run of Brock dominating WWE for the next five years and ended Undertaker’s time as the top attraction at WrestleMania. Nothing else done by Lesnar could match the pain fans felt at this moment.
