Paul Heyman believes Brock Lesnar is the most under-appreciated WWE superstar of all time

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman

The WWE Universe was sent into a state of shock last Sunday as Brock Lesnar captured the Money In The Bank briefcase in his first appearance since WrestleMania 35.

It doesn't happen very often, but Lesnar will appear on Raw tonight for the second time in as many weeks as the build-up continues to Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia on June 7.

Lesnar will be getting a huge pay-packet to travel there and compete, and it's more-than-likely going to be against Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship.

That was the word going around last week, and although plans can change, Lesnar and Paul Heyman's segment where they reveal his plans for his Money In The Bank briefcase are probably going to be directed at Rollins.

Lesnar isn't so much a popular figure to many WWE fans anymore due to the part-time nature of his appearances and his flip-flopping between WWE and UFC.

Speaking to Yahoo Sports, Heyman thinks that The Beast Incarnate goes under the radar far too much for someone that is as talented as he is.

“I think the general public and even those who aren’t fans of Brock Lesnar but admire his greatness, don’t truly have the mindset of understanding how unique and how rare and how once-ever Brock Lesnar truly is,” Heyman said of his client.

Paul Heyman's comments on Brock Lesnar being underrated and under-appreciated are bound to cause a stir with WWE fans

“Brock Lesnar is so important to WWE because no-one on the face of the planet can match up against Brock Lesnar.

"There is no one on any roster in mixed martial arts or sports entertainment that can compare to the resume, the accomplishments or the ability of Brock Lesnar. He’s a once-ever athlete and a once-ever performer.

"I think Brock Lesnar is the most underrated, under-appreciated talent in the history of WWE," Heyman continued.

"I think Brock Lesnar deserves credit for being the best in-ring performer in this or any other generation. No one moves like him, no one has matches like him.

"There’s nothing standard about a Brock Lesnar match. It’s a completely different style than anyone else is employing.”

Lesnar seems to be firmly committed to WWE in the near future after 'retiring' from MMA competition

Heyman does make some interesting and valid points, but many would say the full-time Brock Lesnar of 15 years ago was better than the current guise.

It's very rare the Brock of 2019 does more than a few suplexes and F5's during a match, whereas 2003/04 Lesnar could have many different types of matches.

Heyman's comments are bound to cause much debate on who really is the most under-appreciated superstar of all-time, so let us know who you think deserves that title in the comments.
