Brock Lesnar is a multi-time world champion in WWE who has main-evented numerous WrestleManias. He is best known for his work against stars like The Undertaker, Triple H, Goldberg, and Roman Reigns.
But what’s not commonly known is that The Beast Incarnate suffers from a condition known as ‘cauliflower ear’ due to which his right ear looks different. In medical terms, this condition is called Auricular Hematoma. Pooled blood gets collected under the skin of the external ear, which sometimes leads to permanent disfigurement. It is pretty common among fighters and wrestlers due to punishment to the outer ear.
Lesnar was an amateur wrestler in college before getting hired by OVW in 2000. That was when he sustained the injury. The disfigurement can be corrected by an otoplasty surgery. However, the majority of fighters do not surgically repair it as it serves as a ‘badge of honour’.
Brock Lesnar is one of the most accomplished wrestlers in WWE’s history. The Conqueror has won a total of eight world championships throughout his WWE career. He’s the 2002 King of the Ring tournament winner, a Royal Rumble match winner and a 5-time Slammy Award winner. He is also a former UFC Champion.
Lesnar is one of the highest-paid WWE wrestlers of all time. At SummerSlam 2021, he debuted a new look with long hair. Big E commented on Lesnar’s new look and his lifestyle while being featured in an episode of Talking Smack.
“Well, the hair was a choice. It really was a choice, but I don’t have Brock money. You know, you get to a level of wealth where you just do stuff because you’re bored, I think he’s at that level of wealth. So congrats to him,” said Big E.
