It's been a long journey for Brock Lesnar during his second spell with WWE, and while many fans would rather see him fade off into the distance, it doesn't appear as if the veteran is going away anytime soon.
At this point, we have more answers than questions regarding his time with the company, but instead of delving too deep into his storylines, we want to take a look at something else.
That 'something else' is who the Beast Incarnate, for better or worse, likes and dislikes within the business. Some of these are a bit tongue in cheek, but such is the world of professional wrestling.
Back at WrestleMania 32, there was a lot of hype behind the Dean Ambrose vs Brock Lesnar match. In the end, though, it didn’t quite live up to the hype.
Dean clearly still has a chip on his shoulder about it, claiming that it was mostly due to Brock not being all too interested in putting any effort into the bout.
Over the years there have always been a few queries as to whether or not there’s been any major beef between Chris Jericho and Brock Lesnar.
While they’re probably pals when they see each other, the fact that they threw down backstage after Lesnar cut Randy Orton open hard at SummerSlam 2016 raises a lot of questions.
Any man that gets the best of Brock Lesnar, in any capacity, isn’t going to be in his good books.
Back in the day, at WrestleMania XX, Goldberg and Lesnar had one of the worst Mania matches of all time – in the eyes of many fans and pundits alike.
Brock claims not to care all that much about the business, but we’re pretty confident in saying that stung. It is should be noted they're on good terms today.
There were many reports a few years back that Brock Lesnar requested to work with Samoa Joe, and we can believe that.
The title match they had with one another was one of the best of Lesnar’s second run, and the segments between the two were absolute gold – and even that may be an understatement.
These two came up during the same era and they never exactly seemed to be the best of friends. Oh, and there was that incident that we referred to briefly in which Lesnar quite literally caved Randy’s skull in.
Orton may have signed off on it, but it’s still a bit dodgy.
Cain Velasquez is now officially a professional wrestler following his recent stint with AAA, and that’s incredibly exciting.
However, prior to his days inside the squared circle, he was one of the most feared heavyweights in the history of the UFC. How do we know? Because he beat Brock Lesnar senseless and gave him a scar under his eye.
These two men have beaten each other up for a good few years now, but the defining moment of their rivalry came when Braun accidentally kneed Brock Lesnar in the head. In response, Lesnar laid one right back on him with a stiff right hand to the head.
That isn’t the kind of thing you forget overnight.
Brock and Shelton go back a long time, all the way to the University of Minnesota. They went on to spend time in OVW together, and by all accounts, they have been able to maintain a strong relationship ever since.
Benjamin is incredibly underrated, and Lesnar will be the first one to tell you that.
You just can’t go through as many wars as these two did without having some form of resentment towards one another.
After all, Brock bust Cena open on more than one occasion throughout the course of their encounters, and while you could argue that it was scripted we aren’t so sure Lesnar even knows the meaning of that word these days.
Matt Riddle has been making a song and dance about the fact that he wants to be the one that retires Brock Lesnar and we’re all in on it.
The story writes itself given that both of them have an established mixed martial arts background, and we’ve just got a feeling that Lesnar isn’t a big fan of this kid mentioning his name every two minutes.
All you need to do is go back and watch Brock Lesnar’s reaction following the end of WrestleMania 34 to know that he isn’t Roman Reigns’ biggest fan.
While they had a great match at WrestleMania 31, the repetition of their feud seemed to wear everyone down – and when we say everyone, we’re including Brock himself in that.
The two have posed in photos together, shared some great matches with one another, and have always had fantastic chemistry in the ring.
There’s not a doubt in our mind that Brock is a big fan of Kurt, especially given that they both possess an amateur wrestling background from their younger days.
Aside from the fact that he stared Hulk Hogan down during his ‘birthday’ episode of Monday Night RAW a few years back, we also get the feeling that Brock was never a big fan of the Hulkster back in his prime.
He certainly made him pay for it back in 2002 when they had a match, but it wasn’t a match they particularly blew people away.
Seth, like many others on this list, has said a lot of negative stuff about Brock Lesnar since their feud began to escalate in the build-up to WrestleMania 35.
While Seth was able to come out on top and capture the Universal Championship, you just know that the Beast isn’t going to let it go.
Why else would he whip him around like a rag doll every single time he was in the ring with him?
Lesnar always seemed to go a little bit harder in the paint in regards to putting Jeff Hardy down, and while Jeff did sell it well and was convincing in doing so, we still believe there was something else buried beneath the surface.
While some could suggest that Taker and Brock clearly didn’t like each other once upon a time, we choose to believe that was a work.
Even if it wasn’t, the clips and images of them together, acting pretty friendly, seems to indicate that as time has gone on, they’ve become closer than they were in the past.
Triple H going over Brock Lesnar back at WrestleMania 29 was a mistake and just about everyone within the world of professional wrestling was aware of that fact.
Lesnar likes to pretend he doesn’t care about the ins and outs but we all know that to be false, and given that The Game is often involved in the backstage politics of WWE, they’ve surely had more than a few run-ins.
Daniel Cormier loves professional wrestling, wants to get into commentary and was an amateur wrestler back in his day, so we’re going to go ahead and say that he qualifies here.
Back at UFC 226, these two men went at it and while it felt like a scripted moment, nobody can deny that there was some real tension in the air.
Mutual respect is a hard thing to come by when you’re talking about Brock Lesnar, but Daniel Bryan was able to claim that respect when the two went head to head at Survivor Series 2018.
Beyond that, they’ve always wanted to face off against one another, and it was great to finally see it happen.
