UPDATE: It would appear that the new Instagram account created by Luke Lesnar is fan created and not Luke Lesnar’s official site. Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet has uncovered the original photo and it is indeed not Brock Lesnar’s son.
Brock Lesnar‘s oldest son, 17-year old Luke Lesnar, has opened a new Instagram account to document his journey into training to become a pro wrestler. While children of wrestlers getting into the “family business” is nothing new, it’s interesting where Luke tagged himself in his Instagram post – the WWE Performance Center.
At 17 years old, he’s already 6’4″ and over 200 lbs., and definitely has the physique of a pro wrestler. In another post, on Brock’s birthday, Luke stated “(L)ife’s about to change pops, I promise you. All because you had faith in me. Thank you for allowing me to follow in your footsteps and make you proud.” Luke is the twin of Brock’s only daughter, Miya Lynn, and Brock’s children from his ex-girlfriend, Nicole McClain. Brock also has two more sons, Turk and Duke, with his wife and former WWE Superstar Rena “Sable” Lesnar.
While his passion for pro wrestling has always been a thing of locker room talk, Brock Lesnar’s work ethic and determination have never been in question, starting from the teenage years that made him an amateur wrestling phenom. A collegiate wrestling juggernaut, he was a highly scouted prospect when he signed with WWE in 2000, after winning the NCAA Division I Heavyweight championship. Brock spent two years in WWE’s developmental system before debuting on WWE television in 2002. His fierce competitive drive led Brock to try out for the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL and enter the world of MMA fighting in 2007.
