WWE's Brock Lesnar Plans To Continue Wrestling For "As Long As Those Dollar Bills Keep Coming In"

Lesnar is enjoying himself

20 years on from his WWE debut and Brock Lesnar still finds himself at the top of the card, having recently held the WWE Championship and won the 2022 Men's Royal Rumble. 

The Beast Incarnate is now 44-years-old but he doesn't plan to stop wrestling anytime soon, saying on the Pat McAfee Show that he plans to keep performing for "as long as those dollar bills keep coming in."

Lesnar is currently one of WWE's highest earners, reportedly taking home over $5 million per year. He is currently in his third run with WWE, having returned at SummerSlam 2021, 17 months on from his loss to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36.

While Lesnar was a heel upon his departure, he has since reinvented himself as a cowboy-like babyface and Lesnar admitted he is having a "great time" during his current run. 

"I'm having a great time. I think (I'm smarter). I'm more relaxed. I have 20 years in and I'm having fun. I don't give a sh*t if I f*ck up. I don't have to do this. I've been really wise. I'm doing it because I want to. I'm not gloating. I've just been good with my money. I was almost bankrupt my first run. I just signed a big deal with Vince, a big deal, back 20 years ago. A lot of guaranteed money," Lesnar began.

"Six months later I'm like, 'Yeah, go screw yourself Vince.' He was a little chapped. I had to do that. He understood that. I had to leave and go out. If I didn't leave, I wouldn't have been in the UFC and all that stuff. I made my own and paved my own road. Came back and established that this is what I want and this is how I'm going to do it and I'm very fortunate. I'm having a good time and I want to portray and show a different side."
