The Star Tribute in Minneapolis-St. Paul has an interview up with former WWE star and current UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar. Lesnar faces current interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir this Saturday at UFC 100 in a championshiup unification rematch from Lesnar’s first fight in the UFC back in February of 2008. Here are some of the highlights.
On not being a big fan of being in the “spotlight”:
“I’m not a big spotlight kind of guy, and if I was, I was probably faking it before. I’m content with my family and my life right now and the way my career is going. Nothing more, nothing less.”
On being offered a $250,000 multiyear contract with WWE:
“Here I was wondering how I was going to buy myself a beer and a steak after the national tournament, reaching down and pulling out lint. It was pretty easy. Go with a sure thing. And the sure thing at the time was becoming a pro wrestler.”
On the lifestyle of a pro wrestler:
“You’re in a different city every night. You can be whoever you want to be. You can sit in your hotel room and rot to death or you can go out and…just use your imagination. And I didn’t use my imagination, I was living it. Really, I was a young man, 22 years old. Bank accounts overflowing and everything else.”
