** During the 2004 ''Wrestling/NoWayOut'' ''Wrestling/NoWayOutWrestling'' intro he uttered this epic line:



* HumiliationConga: Lesnar can usually be counted on to play the part of the ultimate asskicker, but whenever Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} is involved, things tend to go badly for him, ''very badly'': First he gets tackled by Goldberg at the 2004 ''Wrestling/NoWayOut'' during his title defense against Wrestling/EddieGuerrero, which Guerrero takes advantage of by performing a frog splash onto his injured body and pins him to become the WWE Champion. ''Then'' Goldberg defeats him in their grudge match at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania XX'' which was, not incidentally, both men's last match in their first runs in WWE and finally, just to twist in the knife, Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin "stuns" both him ''and'' Goldberg to massive cheers from the crowd. Then he attempts to break into the NFL and fails, and then he attempts a return to the WWE but is turned away, and then he tries to wrestle in Japan but can't get out of his no-compete clause. It took awhile for Brock to get back on his feet. Despite turning the trope on its head in his return run after ending The Undertaker's undefeated streak at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania'' and downright embarrassing John Cena at ''Wrestling/SummerSlam 2014'' to win the WWE Championship, Goldberg coming back is once again all it takes for Lesnar to become the butt of the joke, starting at ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 2016'' where Goldberg defeats Brock yet again, this time in a '''[[CurbStompBattle squash match]]'''. It continues at ''Royal Rumble 2017'' where, despite a dominant first impression, he's once again humiliated by Goldberg, who unceremoniously tossed him out after a Spear. Then in their Universal Championship match at ''[=WrestleMania 33=]'', Goldberg once again takes Brock down with a Jackhammer, leaving Paul Heyman openly facepalming before the count is even made. Fortunately for Brock, he kicked out this time and then ended this Conga with a dominant championship victory over Goldberg.

** Since Brock's de-facto HeelFaceTurn when he announced he was re-signing with WWE for three years and officially done with UFC, Heyman has been cleverly using his "Heyman Hustle" website/YouTube channel to promote Brock to the masses by taking advantage of relevant viral moments. This is hardly a friendship that ends when the cameras stop rolling or the alliance of convenience their characters would typically insist it is.

* HeroKiller: His ''entire comeback run'' in WWE appears to be built on Lesnar being exactly this, becoming the most significant hero-killer in professional wrestling history by ending The Streak ''100% cleanly'', and he promptly followed that by giving Wrestling/JohnCena the biggest beatdown of his career at ''[=SummerSlam=] 2014'' to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

* MemeticMutation: "Suplex City," which was born as a result of what was likely just an offhand remark by Lesnar to Wrestling/RomanReigns at ''[=WrestleMania=] XXX'' (Lesnar simply yelled "Suplex City, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]!" after one of his many throws); the commentators played up the concept during the match, including Jerry Lawler warning Reigns not to "Take up residence in Suplex City," which probably helped somewhat with this trope being played straight. His reappearance at Raw post-Money in the Bank saw him [[http://www.thatsclevelandbaby.com/cleveland-is-suplex-city/ wearing the meme shirt]], its design changing based on the city in which WWE is performing, the implication being that Suplex City is wherever Lesnar goes. 2K Sports also [[{{Defictionalization}} defictionalized]] Suplex City into a real (and very dangerous looking) city [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3Tb_9nyKUU for a commercial ad]].

** His match against Wrestling/JohnCena at ''[=SummerSlam=]'' 2014. Suplex after suplex... after suplex. And when Brock was done with that, he delivered - you guessed it - more suplexes. 16 in total. This has since become his gimmick, more or less; the commentators and the crowd often count the number of times he German Suplexes his opponent. It's by far the move he uses most often.

** Subverted in his match against Wrestling/RomanReigns at ''[=WrestleMania=] 31''. Reigns was able to bloody Lesnar up both in the beginning of the match when he madly grabbed and punched at Brock before being put down with an F5, and also when he busted Brock open by sending him headfirst into the ringpost. However, with Lesnar being on the roll of his (or anyone's) life in terms of pure dominance, it took THREE SUPERMAN PUNCHES (usually one suffices) for Roman to finally floor him enough to stand a chance at being able to pin him after TWO Spears.

** Less out-there than most of them, but there isn't really any other way to justify the way he completely [[NoSell no-sold]] weapons used by, among others, [[Wrestling/MattHardy the]] [[Wrestling/JeffHardy Hardyz]] Wrestling/{{Matt|Hardy}} and Wrestling/JeffHardy during his rampages (most memorably when he remained standing after Jeff Hardy swung a chair at Brock's head as if it were a baseball bat). Lesnar is an especially notable case in that he doesn't have any supernatural or otherwise gimmicky effects to his character: his sheer physical prowess and attitude alone causes this trope.

He then returned to wrestling and went on to win Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling's [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/japan/newjapan/iwgp-h.html IWGP Heavyweight Championship]].

** Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} is the only wrestler Brock has not been able to defeat in his entire WWE career. Worse, their second encounter not only ended with Lesnar's loss -- [[CurbStompBattle he also got squashed flat]].
*** Lesnar finally [[spoiler: got his win over Goldberg at Wrestlemania 33]].

** By 2017, now once again a de facto face, he made a new interview to prepare his match against heel hitman Samoa Joe where he kinda retconned his previous statements about the business and claimed what he actually cares about is being the best.

*** None of the commentators said anything, but Lesnar did the same thing to John Cena at Extreme Rules in 2012, and also at one point nonchalantly licked Cena's blood off of his hands while [[SlasherSmile smiling]] about it.

* BookEnds:
** Debuted in WWE on March 18th 2002, the night after ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} [=X8=]'', and made his final appearance for the company at ''[=WrestleMania=] XX''.

* BoringButPractical: Lesnar's SignatureMove after his return in 2012, the Kimura Lock, would be more suited to the days of Bruno Sammartino and Bob Backlund (and probably has been used by one of them) and looks out of place beside flashier moves of today. However, it can cripple someone in real life and is a nice nod to his MMA days (even though Lesnar, being a former wrestler, wouldn't be very likely to attempt a submission in which Lesnar himself is on his back).

** Actually integrated into his feud with Wrestling/{{Goldberg}}, where he was unexpectedly [[CurbStompBattle decimated]] by the returning star. [[Wrestling/PaulHeyman Heyman]] did his best to play it off as a fluke and that ''maybe'' Brock had become unfocused after sitting on top of the mountain for so long. This is also TruthInTelevision for Brock's "real-life fighter" gimmick, as even brilliant MMA fighters are always one bad break away from a loss.

* CurbStompBattle: He's notorious for dishing these out in his pro wrestling persona, sometimes just for fun. None were more impressive, however, than the one he handed to '''JOHN CENA''' in 2014.
