Published 2 Comments

Brock Lesnar has said he brings ‘credibility’ to the WWE in a recent interview.

Speaking to ESPN’s Mike and Mike yesterday promoting SummerSlam according to WrestlingNews.co, The Beast Incarnate spoke about being a heel in the WWE, on whether UFC 100 or WrestleMania is bigger, and whether Vince McMahon welcomed him back.

On the last point, Lesnar said McMahon did welcome him back, and that he is glad he did because their relationship has got better as they ‘see eye-to-eye’ more.

He said: Absolutely, it was good. It was really good. We see eye to eye a little better now. Our relationship I think is better than it has been. I left the company and basically made my own brand, made Brock Lesnar and went to the UFC. I just didn’t come in there lightly. I rocked the cage and won a championship.

“And leaving there, there’s a lot of credibility to that, and it brings a lot of credibility to WWE.”

He does bring a lot of credibility to the WWE. His sheer presence is exemplified in the ring every single time he steps between the ropes.

One of the best examples of this I think is the SummerSlam match he had last year against John Cena, where he deliver 16 German suplexes, truly demonstrating to the world that he is The Beast Incarnate.

His credibility also personifies his heel character as well. On being heel, he said: It comes very natural to me. Now they’re digging it. When I first came back, they weren’t digging it. Now I’m getting cheered out of the building.”

UFC 100 or WrestleMania?

Does Lesnar think UFC 100 is bigger or WrestleMania? The answer will not surprise wrestling fans. He said: “Honestly, last night at Raw in Minneapolis, Target Center, I had a great homecoming. I haven’t been in front of my hometown crowd in a long time. It’s been about ten years. It was a great experience.

“But UFC 100 or WrestleMania? WrestleMania, I mean last year we had 80,000 people. It’s all electrifying, but when you’re in competition in UFC, I wasn’t able to absorb any of that ever because you’re going out to hurt somebody. It’s a whole other mindset. My years in UFC, I don’t remember anything other than being a stone cold, barbarian killer.”
