* UnderestimatingBadassery: Lesnar severely underestimated {{Wrestling/Goldberg}} during the weeks leading up to ''Survivor Series 2016'' by constantly mocking him and threatening Goldberg's family, thinking that since Goldberg hasn't been in the ring for 12 years that he would be an easy win and paycheck. Goldberg proved Lesnar wrong by [[CurbstompBattle decimating Lesnar in 86 seconds]] come the event.

* RealityEnsues: ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 2016''. [[spoiler:After taking his first bump, he tried to psyche out Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} by slowly standing back up with a SlasherSmile... and then immediately ate a Spear before he could even blink.]]

** Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} is the only wrestler Brock has not been able to defeat in his entire WWE career. Worse, their second encounter didn't just ended with Lesnar's loss -- [[CurbStompBattle he also got squashed flat]].

* '''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 ''Wrestling/SummerSlam 2014'' to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

** He was, however, on the receiving end of one at Survivor Series 2016 when he was completely by decimated by Goldberg, returning for his first match in 12 years, after a pair of Spears and a single Jackhammer.

* InvincibleVillain: The Big Show, Dean Ambrose, John Cena, Mark Henry, [[spoiler:Randy Orton (as of ''Wrestling/SummerSlam 2016'')]], Roman Reigns, Triple H, The Undertaker, etc., have all failed to stop him and even been brutalized repeatedly for their efforts. Seth Rollins has been the only one to subvert this -- and even then, only via constant DirtyCoward tactics instead of actual prowess.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: One of his few losses as an amateur wrestler [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oazcXMVVpU came in the 1999 NCAA Division I wrestling championship]] to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Neal Stephen Neal]], who later went on to live Lesnar's dream of playing in the NFL, and played for the New England Patriots from 2001 to 2010. Although Lesnar did win the championship the following year, and became much more famous and accomplished by going into pro wrestling and MMA, he admitted in a March 2011 interview that the loss to Neal still stuck with him.

* HandicappedBadass: He kept fighting in UFC even when suffering from diverticulitis. YMMV on the claims by Wrestling/PaulHeyman, but Lesnar was supposedly only at "50 percent" because of his continued issues with diverticulitis even while ''devastating'' Wrestling/JohnCena for 20+ minutes at Extreme Rules 2012, only to narrowly lose the match after two hits.[[note]]To be fair, while Heyman the character is a pathological liar, he's generally pretty straightforward when it comes to his association with Lesnar. Plus, Brock's diverticulitis was used as part of the match psychology between him and Wrestling/TripleH months later at that year's ''[=SummerSlam=]'', so it's pretty likely he's not lying here.[[/note]] Going into ''[=SummerSlam=] 2014?'' [[OhCrap He was allegedly at 100%]]. He decisively beat John Cena.
* HandshakeRefusal: Big Show offered Lesnar a congratulatory handshake after being defeated soundly by Brock at a special WWE Network-only event in late 2015. As if thinking that Lesnar would actually shake his hand wasn't already less than logical, Big Show then decided to taunt Lesnar in return by bringing up the fact that Undertaker beat him at 2015's ''[=SummerSlam=]'', which earned Show a trip to Suplex City.

** First he gets tackled by Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} at the 2004 ''No Way Out'' 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 ''[=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 ''[=WrestleMania=]'', he downright embarrassed John Cena at ''[=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).
