In 2000, after ending college, Lesnar signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment and Lesnar was sent to its developmental territory at the time, Ohio Valley Wrestling. There, he groomed his wrestling skills, which led to him getting called up to the main roster and winning the WWE Championship on three occasions.
OVW commentator Kenny Bolin sent out the following statement regarding Lesnar’s upcoming appearance.
Hello Every Body!
As many of you may already know,,,,i was quite critical of Brock Lesner a few weeks ago on my # 1 Rated Radio segment @ “Who’s Slamming Who” a few weeks ago. I may also have mentioned that i had got the better of Brock Lesner a few times in his days at OVW and a few other stories he may not have wanted me to tell. Well,… to my surprise and by special arrangements made by OVW owner Danny Davis, Brock Lesner is returning to the Davis Arena for a one night special appearance and meet and greet Jan 7th. Doors open at A SPECIAL 3pm start time for the meet and greet.
Go to www.OVWrestling.com for details of the Historic Event and where to get tickets. Ticket prices are $30 in advance and $40 the day of the show. Tickets will go very fast and we are expecting an all time record breaking crowd due to his limited appearances in this area.
I will also add that i can assure you i will have a HUGE surprise for Brock Lesner if he even thinks of looking my way in a negative fashion.
We hope to see ya there for this once in a life time night at Davis arena @ 4400 Shepherdsville Rd. Louisville Ky. You will NOT want to miss this!!!
