WWE: Paul Heyman and Goldberg reveal admiration for Brock Lesnar

Published 1 Comments

Even though he is not a full-time WWE superstar, Brock Lesnar is often talked about because of his prominence within the company.

During his chat with Stone Cold on his Steve Austin pod cast this past week, Paul Heyman opened up about a variety of topics which Lesnar unsurprisingly being covered.

Heyman explained how torn Lesnar was when making his decision between returning to UFC or continuing his infamous run as a huge name at WWE.

Incredible Shape

Heyman said: "I think Brock was very torn by his decision because this run in WWE truly was so enjoyable.

He continued: "Here he is for the first time in his life, he’s healthy. He’s healthy, what could he accomplish now even at 37 years old? Weighing that against we’ve had a blast here in WWE. He’s enjoying himself in WWE for really the first time. He never took the time to sit back and say, ‘Man, this is enjoyable.'"

An understandable decision perhaps, but it was also revealed that WWE officials were of the belief that Lesnar was going to return the UFC without doubt but despite UFC chief Dana White's doubling of his offer, Lesnar still turned it down.

Another big name of WWE who has also spoken recently about Lesnar choosing to continue working under WWE is his personal friend; Goldberg.

"A Genius"

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Goldberg explained how The Beast and Ernest Miller are the only two wrestlers he has kept in contact with since he left WWE on what were not exactly the greatest of terms.

Despite their differing views of WWE as a company, Goldberg made it clear that he admired Lesnar's current mindset:

"He's a genius, but he's a little younger than me, and he can tolerate a little more than I can. I refuse to do it. The one year that I [joined WWE], I'm so mad at myself for doing it, but I owed it to the fans to try it. I put myself on that platter and I got slaughtered. That's how I feel, and I shouldn't feel like that.

He continued: "The fact is, behind the scenes, there's stuff that goes on that's bush-league. It's laughable. So to see a guy like Brock do what he's doing, are you kidding me? I admire him whole-heartedly, and I like to think that I taught him a thing or two. I'd love to wrestle Brock again."

The likelihood of a Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar match-up though, is highly unlikely given both men's current hectic schedule as well as the WWE's relationship with Goldberg at present. 

With this in mind however, Goldberg did recently reveal that he had been in touch with Authority member Triple H about a possible return to the company, but the idea of what would be an incredible appearance stopped there.
