The current MAXIM Magazine on newsstands right now features an interview with Brock Lesnar, where the former WWE champion-turned UFC Heavyweight champion discusses the lifestyle in WWE.
Lesnar said, "You get so brainwashed. You’re on the road 300 days a year, and that’s why guys get so messed up."
He continued, "This life just becomes a part of them. It’s not real, but some guys who are still in the business think it is. You look at Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler – he just couldn’t let it go. You live a double life. I was tired of trying to be who I was in the ring and then coming home for two days to be normal. They didn’t allow you to be. The guys who get out are the smart ones, really and truly."
