Brock was born in South Dakota, where he studied at Webster High School. His personal record in the senior year was 33-0-0. Lesnar’s academic achievements were significantly poorer than his accomplishments in sports. In one of his interviews Lesnar admitted he graduated the last in his class, which consisted of 54 students. As is convincingly proved by the current Brock Lesnar net worth, the lack of education did not hamper his professional career.
After graduation Brock received a full wrestling scholarship at University of Minnesota. His dorm roommate in college campus was Shelton Benjamin. For those who have not heard of this guy, Shelton is also a professional wrestler, best known for his achievements on WWE and currently working for New Japan Pro Wrestling. Despite the relative professional success, Benjamin’s fortune is significantly inferior to Brock Lesnar net worth: he currently holds assets evaluated at some $330 thousand.
Brock’s wrestling career took off in 2000, when a 23-year-old won NCAA wrestling championship. After leaving the University of Minnesota, Lesnar landed a contract with World Wrestling Federation, a privately controlled, publicly treated entertainment company, currently known as WWE. For the curious ones- his wife is also a former professional wrestler, model and actress. By the time he met Rena Marlette Mero, Brock Lesnar net worth was already counted in millions. When the two fell in love, Lesnar was still living with his former fiancée Nicole. He left her and their one-year-old daughter to start relationship with Rena.
The couple is currently raising three children: Mariah (Rena’s daughter from her previous marriage with a boxer Marc Mero) and their two sons together, Turk and Duke. Little more is known about Brock’s personal life, as he is extremely careful in sharing the details about his its details. When asked to describe his daily routine, Lesnar was very laconic: “it’s very basic”, he said, “I sleep, I get up, I spend time with my family, I train, I fight and by the end of the day I go to sleep again”.
