At the conclusion of an exhausting year of non-stop touring to defend his Universal Championship on a nightly basis against all challengers, sports-entertainer Brock Lesnar has resolved to take more personal time away from the stresses of work in 2019.
Like millions around the world, Lesnar plans to use New Year’s Eve as an opportunity to reflect on the past year — a year that, in his case, included 323 title defences on four continents, and 174 Make-A-Wish visits — and to initiate positive change for the coming year.
“I just need more ‘me time,’ you know?” Lesnar said in a year-in-review article published today on WWE.com. “I think 2019 will be the year I finally take the time to do some scrapbooking.”
The Beast Incarnate’s spokesperson and life partner, Paul Heyman, said his “client is taking a much-deserved break from the hubbub of WWE, though he will hang on to his Universal Championship for safe keeping.”
According to Lesnar’s current contract with WWE, he is required to defend the Universal Championship in 2019 “at least zero times.”
