NEWS… BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
Brock Lesnar has undergone a complete image change and the WWE star is now rocking a ponytail.
As if the past 14 months haven’t been strange enough, new photos of the Beast Incarnate have surfaced online showing the former UFC Champion looking almost unrecognisable.
In picture shared by The Bearded Butchers, Lesnar – who filmed with hunting and cooking duo Seth and Scott Perkins for an upcoming video on their YouTube channel – looked totally different as he sported longer hair and a goatee.
They teased: ‘Brock Lesnar returns with a NEW LOOK and he’s hanging out with The Bearded Butchers! Full Youtube video coming soon to our channel. (sic)’
WWE fans haven’t seen Brock for a long time, with his most recent TV appearance coming in April 2020 when he lost the world championship to Drew McIntyre in the main event of WrestleMania 36.
Ever since that night, everyone’s been clamouring for a return – but now fans aren’t too sure about his new look.

‘Cursed image,’ one Twitter user simply wrote.
Another questioned: ‘Is this real?’
While a different fan described it as ‘traumatising’, someone else compared Brock to Buddy Murphy after the recently released WWE star seriously beefed up following his recent departure.
And one very imaginative Twitter user quipped: ‘He looks like a Dwarven blacksmith.’
Maybe if Brock doesn’t return to WWE this summer, he could get working on a role in Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series? Surely they have the budget!

Meanwhile, Bobby Lashley has been gunning for a dream match against Lesnar for years now – and returned to the company for that very purpose – but there’s another potential challenger for the Beast.
Former NXT North American Champion Bronson Reed could be in line to move up to the main roster after dropping the title recently, and after initially winning the gold he admitted Brock is in his sights.
He exclusively told Metro.co.uk: ‘I would love to do that! He’s someone that, whenever he’s involved he’s such an attraction! Any match he’s in, you just don’t really know what he’s gonna do. I’d love to do it.’
