BROCK LESNAR is one of the biggest Superstars to ever grace the WWE – both in terms of size and his legendary status. The Beast Incarnate is a hugely divisive character, with fans mixed on whether they love or hate the former Universal Champion.
In the ring, he’s a Colossus, a Hulk who tosses his opponents around like a rag doll before finishing them off with a brutal F5.

But outside, he is a quiet family man, married with children and living a secluded lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of city life in the forest.
One of the most striking features about Lesnar is his tattos, which he has inked from his neck down to his legs.
Here SunSport takes you through what they are, what they mean and what the man himself has to say about them.
The 43-year-old has a large sword on his chest, running from his stomach to his neck.
In his 2011 autobiography titled Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination and Survival, he explained what he meant.
He wrote: “I felt like life was holding a sword to my throat, so I went under the ink gun because I never wanted to forget how I felt then.
“The tattoo on my chest means a lot to me.
“In some ways, it’s funny, because the period of my life I’m talking about is the time I want to forget.
“But I know I can use that memory as motivation.”
Lesnar was referring to the period when he was in a bitter legal dispute with WWE.
He left Vince McMahon’s company in the mid-2000s, but a non-compete clause in his contract prohibited him from competing with rivals New Japan Pro Wrestling.
It is understood that he felt the boatman symbolically holding a sword to his throat, and, on a drunken night out, began tattooing.
Back: Satan and letters
The WWE Champion has a large demonic skull on his back, as well as spiked fists.
He has never revealed the true meaning behind the tattoo, but it is assumed to be a reference to himself and his own personality.
His character can be vicious, powerful and borderline sadistic. He is known for his prowess in the wrestling ring and inside the UFC Octagon.
Lesnar also has lettering on his lower back, which is covered by his trunks, so is often not seen by spectators.
It has a message of ‘Kill ‘Em All’ – which may again be a nod to the man himself, but others have a different view.
Metallica’s hit ‘Enter Sandman’ was his UFC entrance music, and also the title of the band’s debut album in 1983.
Arms: Yautja and skull
On his left shoulder, Lesnar has a photo of Yutja from the blockbuster movie Predator.
He is a huge fan of the hit flick, about a fictional species that hunts aliens on Earth and in space.
The WWE icon also has a skull inked on his right, upper arm, and has had it for many years.
In general, tattoos are a symbol of strength, protection, power and overcoming death.
It may also be a nod to what happens to their opponents in the wrestling ring and MMA Octagon.
