** 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 (although Cena returned the favor later in ''Night of Champions 2014'' and would've claimed back the World Heavyweight title from Lesnar if it weren't for Rollins attacking him).

* AttackAttackAttack: His main strategy. And with his [[LightningBruiser speed and strength]], he doesn't need to use any other strategy, although it can come back to bite him on occasion, such as against Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez and John Cena (at Extreme Rules in 2012-- against Cena in 2014, this strategy actually led to [[HeroKiller Cena's destruction]] in a [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu frighteningly one-sided]] match).

Lesnar returned to the WWE on the April 2, 2012 episode of ''Wrestling/WWERaw'', when he came out and hit Wrestling/JohnCena with the [[FinishingMove F5]]. In 2014, Lesnar defeated Wrestling/TheUndertaker at ''[[Wrestling/WrestleMania WrestleMania XXX]]'', ending 'Taker's previous 21-0 streak at the show. Four months later he decisively and cleanly beat Cena (for the ''fourth'' time) at ''[[Wrestling/SummerSlam SummerSlam 2014]]'' to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, winning his first championship at WWE in over ten years. Two and a half years later, he would again become a heavyweight champion, defeating Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} at ''[[Wrestling/WrestleMania WrestleMania 33]]'' to win the WWE Universal Title.

** Lesnar's pro-wrestling character has always been sort of a {{jerkass}}, but in the early 2000s, he would help out fan favorites like Rey Mysterio if they were getting mugged by a group of heels or something. In late 2015, though, despite being at the very least a de facto face (the crowd cheers for him and he beats up heels), [[LonersAreFreaks he has no friends except Paul Heyman]] (by choice-- hell, he doesn't interact at all with anyone other than Heyman unless he's using his fists), he openly (through Heyman) does not care about the "sport" of pro wrestling as much as his paycheck, and [[https://youtu.be/qNwJ3PsHQXw?t=21 he respects absolutely no one]].

** An even bigger one is against Reigns and Rollins in ''Wrestlemania 31''. Although this doesn't happen right away, when Lesnar shows up again in ''RAW'' after that, he's '''royally pissed off!!''' Some fans must wonder if Cena is laughing his ass off in the backseat for that.

** After his 2012 return, The Big Show, Dean Ambrose, John Cena, Mark Henry, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Triple H, The Undertaker, etc., have all failed to stop him and even been brutalized repeatedly for their efforts. Cena and Rollins are the only ones to subvert this: the former AA'd him on the steel steps after being hit in the face with a ''steel chain-wrapped fist'' (although Heyman claimed that Lesnar was suffering with WorfHadTheFlu at that time) and the latter using constant DirtyCoward tactics instead of actual prowess.

** It's pretty much impossible to get an autograph from him outside a WWE/UFC event. He's been known to completely ignore fans who approach him in public, although he has repeatedly said that he is an intensely private person outside the ring, and has no tolerance for people bugging him when he's not working.

* TakeThatCritics: Came from Wrestling/PaulHeyman on the October 23, 2017 episode of Monday Night Raw, in the form of a {{downplayed|trope}} StealthInsult. At one point during the promo, Heyman praised Lesnar for dominating what he described as the most stacked WWE heavyweight division of all time; a frequent criticism of Brock's UFC career is that while he was active, the UFC's heavyweight roster was not at its strongest.

* 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.
