10 things you didn’t know about Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar grew up in Webster, S.D.

He’s been billed from Minneapolis since his WWE debut in 2002, but Brock Lesnar actually grew up on a dairy farm in Webster, a South Dakota city with a current population of less than 2,000. Eager to spend time outdoors in the area that’s described as “A Place for All Seasons,” young Lesnar was known to sleep in his parents’ hayloft and treat his rural surroundings as his own personal jungle gym. Already athletic at a young age by being so physically active and eager to help out on the family farm, Lesnar began amateur wrestling when he was only 5 years old.
