Brock Lesnar breaks Hulk Hogan’s impressive WWE record

Brock Lesnar is one of the most successful WWE stars in the last 20 years as he has wrestled some of the biggest names in the business, won plenty of championships, and is still a top star to this day.

Lesnar has the record of being the youngest WWE Champion in history at 22 and being the first man to beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania.

Lesnar set another record when he won the WWE Title at Day 1 where he went over Big E, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, & Bobby Lashley in a fatal-5-way match after his scheduled bout with Universal Champion Roman Reigns was snapped.

Dave Meltzer noted in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Lesnar has surpassed Hulk Hogan for winning the WWE Title over the longest period of time between title reigns. Hogan first held the title in 1984 and later won it in 2002, an 18-year gap. Lesnar first won the title in 2002 and his gap was 20 years. Bob Backlund also did this at 17 years (1977 to 1994).

Lesnar is a 6-time WWE Champion and a 3-time Universal Champion. “The Beast Incarnate” will make his first defense in this WWE Title reign against Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble.
