Brock Lesnar shared his regrets

In one of the excerpts of the book, he wrote, “I was the third of four children, and I feel bad for my siblings because most of the time I was the center of attention. My two older brothers, Troy and Chad, were standout athletes in their own right but chose not to pursue sports as a career.”

My poor little sister, Brandy, was a very good athlete too, and she excelled at basketball, volleyball, track, and any other sport she decided to play. But no matter how well she did, she still had to live in the shadow of her big brother Brock.” further wrote the 6-time world champion.
