Brock Lesnar: God, not steroids, built me "like a black man"
Brock Lesnar, the former University of Minnesota All-American wrestler and current Ultimate Fighting Champion heavyweight champ, had a stellar interview with Maxim where he talked about being built like a black man, steroids, disliking President Obama, and ripping WWE.
The random interview, chock-full of money quotes, is worth the read, even if it's a month old.
Our personal favorite in the list of many: Lesnar assures us he got his "black man" physique from God, not steroids.
Check out some of the best quotes below.
On his black-man bod:
"I bet you I've taken over 60 steroid tests... I must be pretty good at masking steroids. God gave me this body: Are you jealous of it or what? Give me a break. I got the genetics of--not to get into racism or anything--but I'm built like a black man. Would you say so?"
His rip at President Obama:
"When you get money and you've never had it before, maybe you want to show it off," Lesnar stated. "I acted foolishly." He noted that he owned four homes, a private plane, two Hummers, and a Mercedes. When asked if he had put money away and if he could retire today, he replied, "That's private. But if Obama keeps spending our money like this, I'll have to fight till I'm 50."
Why he got out of WWE:
"You get so brainwashed... You live a double life. I was tired of trying to be who I was in the ring and then coming home for two days to be normal. They didn't allow you to be. The guys who get out are the smart ones, really and truly."
