Brock Edward Lesnar is a professional wrestler who is currently in a contract with the World Wrestling Federation (WWE). He is also a former Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) artist with a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. One of the biggest names in world wrestling, the current WWE champion has been ‘a ferocious beast’ in the ring, knocking out countless opponents in his quest to be the best wrestler ever to step into the ring. Brock Lesnar biography facts, childhood, net worth and personal life present the profile and life of the pro wrestler from childhood to date, as well as his journey to the centre stage of the WWE.

Brock Lesnar was the third of four children born in Webster, South Dakota on the 12th of July 1977 to his father Richard Lesnar and mother Stephanie Lesnar. He and his siblings grew up in a dairy farm owned by his parents in Webster. By the time he was 17, he was already in the National Guard. He wanted to work with explosives, but was assigned a desk job because of his colourblindness to red and green. He was soon out of a job for failing a typing test, so he started working for a construction company instead.

While in Webster’s High School, he played football and by his senior year, he was already competing in the Amateur Wrestling States Championship, where he came third. In his Sophomore year in Bismarck State College, he won a gold medal for the NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) Heavyweight Championship. He was later transferred to the University of Minnesota for his junior and senior year, where he became roommates with a future colleague ‘Shelton Benjamin.’ Lesnar ended his amateur wrestling carrier as the Champion of the NCAA 1st Division Heavyweight Championship of 2000.

Martyn Ford in an English bodybuilder who gained media attention for his transformation from an “11-stone teenager to a 23-stone giant”. Starting out as an emerging cricketer, he survived an injury that crashed his professional dreams, and recovering from a deep depression, has successfully rebuilt his career around fitness training. His popularity as the ‘real life Hulk’ has also bagged him a number of movie roles with high profile actors, starting with ‘Boyka: Undisputed’ in 2016, in which he played the role of a fierce fighter named ‘Koshmar the nightmare’. His other appearances include ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ (2017), ‘Redcon-1’ (2018) and ‘Accident Man’ (2018). He also has a series of upcoming movies under his belt, including ‘Robin Hood The Rebellion’, ‘Kill Ben Lyk’ and ‘Final Score’, which stars Pierce Brosnan and Dave Bautista. He recently portrayed an Orc in the ‘Shadow of War’ official TV spot ‘Not Today, Brian’. He is also a social media influencer and has over 1.1 million followers to his Instagram account. He is a confirmed athlete for the upcoming 10 year anniversary event of Bodypower Expo at his home town Birmingham in May 2018.

Martyn Ford was always interested in fitness training and began exercising at the age of 11. He then channeled his enthusiasm towards a career in sports and joined the Warwickshire cricket team as a bowler when he was a teenager. He dreamed of becoming an international cricketer representing the English national team one day. However, he suffered a serious injury at the age of 19 that shattered his dreams of playing professional cricket. The injury was followed by a severe case of glandular fever which took nearly a year for him to recover from, a period that was crucial for advancing his career in cricket.

With his career dreams crushed, he fell into a deep depression which, combined with lack of training, adversely affected his body by making him lose weight rapidly. During this time, he determined to pull himself out of his skinny frame by exercising regularly. While initially he only wanted to get back in shape and gain the weight he had lost, he soon found out that fitness training could fill up the void left by the untimely end of his cricketing dreams. It gave him a sense of achievement to be able to rebuild his body and gain control over it. As a result, even after achieving his primary goal, he kept on going for years to come, and 12 stone later, he is still continuing.

His hard work has all paid up in the end as he not only has made a name for himself in the field of weight training, but has also become a star with several films in his kitty and three businesses under his name. He is now focused on staying in good shape for his upcoming film opportunities. Interestingly, at 6 feet and 8 inches, he is just one inch shorter than Hafþór Björnsson, who plays The Mountain in the HBO television series ‘Game of Thrones’.
