Jeffrey Michener Gets Kidnapped | An Unnaturally Muscular Brock Lesnar

I forgot all of my dreams from last night except for barely part of the end of my last dream, part of the dream took place inside a dimly lit house, and strange paranormal-like things were happening inside the house; but that is all that I can remember of that part of the dream.

The next part of the dream took place inside a house, possibly the same house from earlier, and a group of people were trying to capture / kidnap the character Jeffrey Michener who became The President Of The United States on the television show The Last Ship; and eventually they caught him, and they tied him to a chair in a room.

They had a video camera set up to record him, they were going to reveal his identity and his secret to the world but I am not sure what that was all about, and he begged them to not do this; but they explained why they were going to do it, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

The last part of the dream possibly involved my brother GC and I watching an outdoor professional wrestling match on television that was taking place outside during a nice sunny day as a crowd around the wrestling ring watched, and the professional wrestler Brock Lesnar was wrestling against another male wrestler who(m) I can not remember.

Brock Lesnar and the other wrestler were more muscular and more toned than they are now, it looked like they had been working out a lot and taking steroids again and/or like they had some muscle implants and/or something like that because it did not look natural, and I noticed that Mr. Lesnar had two strange possible bone structures poking up behind his neck oddly; and I wondered what that was, and when he would move a certain way some longer and pointier/sharper bone-like structures would poke up from his upper back higher than his head pushing the skin up too and it would move back down.

This looked very strange and dangerous, like it could easily get broken and/or tear through his skin and/or his opponents body, and I wondered what in the world were those strange bone-like structures on his body; and at some point Mr. Lesnar’s opponent slammed him on the mat, the two bone-like structures were not damaged, but his opponent pushed down on them and blood shot into his eyes.

This temporarily blinded him and it allowed Mr. Lesnar to get up and take advantage of the situation, this was pretty nasty and dangerous/unhealthy in my opinion, and I was even more confused; but I woke up.

The end,
