Overview

"Brock Lesnar: The Unauthorized Story Behind Brock Bringing The Pain Back to the WWE" goes inside the rise, fall, and return of Brock Lesnar. Bestselling author Michael Essany chronicles Lesnar's controversial departure from UFC and what lured the ultimate fighter back to the WWE after an eight year absence.

Featuring exclusive interviews with sources close to WWE's biggest comeback since The Rock's 2011 return, wrestling fans will gain fascinating and exclusive insight into:

- The deal that brought Brock Lesnar back to the WWE Universe
- The real life rivalry between Brock Lesnar and Mark Calaway ("The Undertaker")
- The rumored plans for Lesnar at WrestleMania 29 that you haven't heard yet
- How John Cena may spend months at the mercy of Brock Lesnar
- Does Brock Lesnar have a "no-pin" provision in his new contract?
- All this and much, much more.

Go behind the scenes of WWE's biggest developing story with this comprehensive, compelling, and completely unauthorized account of Brock Lesnar and his quest to bring the pain back to World Wrestling Entertainment.

CHAPTER 1 EXCERPT:

It was April 1st, 2012 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.

The occasion was WrestleMania 28, an epic event in sports entertainment that arguably featured the greatest attraction in the annual spectacle's storied history.

Before a record crowd of 78,363 fans who drew an equally momentous gate of $8.9 million for World Wrestling Entertainment, "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson battled John Cena to a stirring finish in the main event twelve months in the making.

For the capacity crowd in attendance and millions more watching all over the world, The Rock's long awaited showdown with John Cena resulted in a WrestleMania match the excitement and drama of which can never be replicated.

Or can they?

Given how plans are taking shape ahead of 2013's presentation of WrestleMania 29, WWE fans who believe they've already seen the "best" may, in fact, be stunned at the WrestleMania WWE officials are now putting together - a WrestleMania that could truly be the greatest of all time.

For the WWE, being in a position where fans are once again viewing today's programming, pay-per-views, and live events as some of the best the company has ever produced is a very healthy sign for the lone power in professional wrestling.

And it’s an achievement that few believed was possible just a few short years ago.
