** Despite trouncing the trope in his return run after ending The Undertaker's undefeated streak at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania'', downright embarrassing John Cena at ''Wrestling/SummerSlam 2014'', making Kofi Kingston look like he didn't belong in WWE at ''The Beast in the East'' event in Japan, and squashing then-WWE-Champion Seth Rollins at ''Battleground'' as much as a halfway-legitimate champion can be squashed without actually beating him, 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 the 2017 Royal Rumble 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.

* HumiliationConga:
** First he gets tackled by Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} at the 2004 ''Wrestling/NoWayOut'' during his title defense against Wrestling/EddieGuerrero. Then Guerrero performs 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 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.
** Perhaps appropriately, Lesnar has inverted this trope as of late 2015. He ended The Undertaker's undefeated streak at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania'', he downright embarrassed John Cena at ''Wrestling/SummerSlam 2014'', made Kofi Kingston look like he didn't belong in WWE at ''The Beast in the East'' event in Japan, and he squashed then-WWE-Champion Seth Rollins at ''Battleground'' as much as a halfway-legitimate champion can be squashed (although he didn't win).

HumiliationConga: Brock can usually be counted on to play the part of the ultimate asskicker, but whenever [[Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} Bill Goldberg]] is involved, things tend to go awry for the Beast and ''very badly'':

** Proved that he's for real about it (at least in {{kayfabe}}) when 3MB (a {{heel}} stable) called out The Shield (a {{face}} stable) due to a confrontation that the two groups had a week prior. Everyone watching was probably anxious to see The Shield lay the ass-kicking of a lifetime on 3MB, but who comes out instead? Brock fucking Lesnar, who was himself a heel at the time. Heel-on-heel violence is rare in WWE, but so is someone with Lesnar's blood lust and killer instinct. Long story short, Brock Lesnar showed up during a promo of a mini-feud in which he was in no way involved, and ripped three other heels to shreds for almost no reason (the commentators pointed to his previous-night loss to Wrestling/TripleH as having pissed him off enough to lash out at anything in his way).

** 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.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: In the UFC, of all places. Brock didn't have true enmity for any of his opponents (save [[ArchEnemy Frank Mir]], but after defeating MMA legend and fellow Olympic-Caliber wrestler Randy Couture, Brock invited him to [[https://youtu.be/pzLZ7EOJdeI train at his Minnesota home]] in preparation for his heavyweight title defense against Shane Carwin.

** Keep in mind that this is for MMA only. It is outright ''defied'' in wrestling, where he has a good deal of respect in the locker room but few actual friends.

* CharacterTic: Lesnar has a tendency to hop in place while flexing his arms and shoulders if he's not too busy booking trips to Suplex City. This trait is completely absent in UFC, however.

* FourIsDeath: [[spoiler: Lesnar's [[CurbStompBattle victory]] over Cena at Summerslam 201'''4''' earned him his ''fourth'' reign with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship (he previously hold the WWE Championship three times in his first run) in the company. Also, during that match, he also delivered 16 suplexes before finishing with the [[FinishingMove F5]]. Square root of 16 is, you guessed it, '''4'''.]]
