The controversial Brock Lesnar made history in his stunning 2nd round knockout of Randy Couture in the main event of UFC 91 in that "The Next Big Thing" is now the only man to have won the WWE (pro wrestling) and UFC (Ultimate Fighting) World Heavyweight Championships. He's also a former NCAA Wrestling Champion. That's some trifecta!
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon made the call for Lesnar to win the WWE Title in 2002 as a "rookie" in World Wrestling Entertainment. His rise to the top saw him crush legends Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair en route to a title victory over Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Lesnar's early WWE days were remarkable for his physical style and his on-air "agent" Paul Heyman's brilliant interviews to hype "The Next Big Thing."
www.mmanewsdesk.comeditor Arturo Collozo Jr continues to update from Vegas:
Brock Lesnar's heel heat in WWE never compared to the vicious reaction he got from the crowd, even post-match tonight. It looked like the only two fans Lesnar had in the whole building were UFC President Dana White and Lesnar's wife, former WWE performer "Sable" (Rena Lesnar).
