The Undertaker and Lesnar had fought in great WWE matches when the latter was a part of the company in the 2000s.

However, before he would return to the WWE ring, Lesnar met Taker at one UFC show and the two challenged each other.

Arrest

Lesnar's controversial arrest that should not have happened

Lesnar has a huge built and unlike many buffed-up professional wrestling guys, he's never taken the help of steroids to achieve his size and built.

Lesnar has been tested by organizations like NFL, UFC and WWE and always came out clean.

He was arrested in 2001 by Kentucky Police for steroid use, but later they realized it was a mistake and charges were dropped.

Lawsuits

WWE and Lesnar filed lawsuits against each other

After Lesnar left WWE in 2004, the company had a clause in the contract which prevented Lesnar from working for any other competing organization.

However, he went ahead and started wrestling for the New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

This resulted in WWE filing a lawsuit against him and Lesnar filing one back to counter their no-contest deal.

Later the two parties reached an agreement out-of-court.

Hunting

Lesnar was facing charges for hunting in Canada

During one of his trips to Canada, Lesnar found himself facing police charges.

He was charged with leaving meat in the open to rot, possessing wildlife illegally and others.

He was fined an amount of $1,725, and the charges levied against him were later dropped.
