Oh come on, to think that the majority of beefcakes that used to be the norm in wrestling in the late eighties-nineties-early 2000 didn't use steriods is pretty naive. Especially since they didn't check for steroid use until the late nineties.

Thank god people are looking a bit more normal these days.

yes, but if you compare those pics you can see that he has lost a pretty siginificant amount of muscle. And that was a good thing when he competed in MMA.

People, its pro wrestling. Its not like his physique or cardio is going to determine the outcome of a match because it is fake.

What we do know is Lesnar is going to make a lot of money.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

exactly, and personally, I can't wait to see it.

and I do think he will look better in a few months once he gets training again.

brock had a lot more of a normal athletic background than most guys in the WWE. He bulked up quite a bit back when he was in high school, he wrestled for a long time and was tested many times while he was still extremely big. I think he was just a giant man that worked very hard, the most indicative thing is the size of his shoulders and his lats. He never seemed to have any of the symptoms of steroid use either, no back acne, no gynecomastia, no noticeable rage issues (yeah he gets worked up when in action but day to day he seems very calm).

Chael Sonnen with his his acne and his naturally low testosterone is a candidate for performance enhancing drugs, Brock is a giant guy that has never exerted a single sign of steroid use and has passed many many steroid tests. He was a monster of a man in college and didn't really look much different when he joined the WWE. It's easy to point the finger at him because he is so big, but I think he's just a genetic outlier and he used to work insanely hard. And I think if anything his decrease in size is more indicative that he doesn't use steroids because testosterone decreases naturally with age and so will muscle mass and it looks like Brock is just past his athletic prime and starting to lose muscle while not supplementing it with any form of testosterone or steroid.

Brock was a special athlete pre-injury. There's a reason he only lost 5 times in his entire college wrestling career. He hasn't ever failed a drug test, and never showed any clear signs of steroid use. He was just a unique athlete physically that was ruined by a horrible illness. Wrestlers like Triple H are guys who are prime candidates for steroid use, as he was no bigger than 180 pounds when he was in his late 20's and now is 260 pounds of muscle in his early 40's.

Brock Lesnar was roided up to the max in wwe and u have to be pretty stupid not to know that, he was probably even using growth which would explain his massive hands. Your saying that Brock shrinking in size is a sign he wasn't using when in fact it was a massive sign he was. If Brock was clean then why didn't he keep that wwe build in UFC? Brock shrunk and lost muscle because he came of steroids and that's the bottom line. Use are making comments that he was tested and passed, when? In Wwe ? So your telling me Hhh, Batista, cena and the rest all pass aswell don't make me laugh,

Not saying Brock did or didn't use, but Brock weighed easily around 300 pounds if not more in the WWE and had a very low body fat %, it'd be extremely hard for him to cut weight and fight if he stayed in his WWE shape.

changing workout programs. Brock worked out to bulk, once he hit the UFC he worked out to fight. I went from 210 to 170 by changing from powerlifting to cardio/plyometrics, does that mean I was on steroids?
