Brock Lesnar keeps showing up unbeatable inside a professional wrestling ring, cutting his way past opponents in last month’s Royal Rumble en route to a title showdown at WrestleMania. However, he claims that the reality of being a WWE performer has a mental toll on him.
Lesnar told The Pat McAfee Show, “I suffer a huge crash after being in front of audiences.” “I go hibernate in Saskatchewan, for example.” It takes me a few days to recover from my downers – like, the anxiousness that comes with it. It’s been like that for a long time. Like, in high school, I used to be on – have big wrestling battles, and when I get out of those large venues, I become anxious around people and I’m awkward as f*ck.
Lesnar continued, “Like I’ve got to go through all of this, and that’s just who I am.” “And I like to go somewhere quiet to get away from the crowds.” It’s not as if I despise people. I mean, it hasn’t always been that that, but there are some people who I dislike. I just want to be left alone, and because I’m in front of an audience, it exhausts me. As a result, I’m going to have to go recharge.”
Brock Lesnar claims to come from a fighting family. He grew raised in Webster, South Dakota, with two elder brothers and often followed in their footsteps.
Lesnar recalls, “The Lesnar family were fighters.” “As a result, I grew up six years younger than my two older brothers, who were coming out of jail on Monday mornings to go to school due of street fights and things like that.” As a result, I grew up with that stigma attached to me. We went to street dances, and I went to fight there. That is exactly what we did. At least, that’s what I did. After that, it was girls, and I might have a couple of drinks.”
