• Brock Lesnar’s Former Opponent Calls Pro-Wrestling ‘Lame’ & ‘Bad Acting’
During an interview with Ariel Helwani, UFC Legend Alistair Overeem talked about the sport of professional wrestling, but he does not seem to be a fan at all of the current product.
Here’s what Overeem said:
“The thing is with that whole wrestling thing, I watched it when I was 8, 9, 10 years old. Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, huge fan of those guys. Honky Tonk Man. Great, funny. Andre The Giant. I stopped watching after that, so I’m not watching since [1992, 1993, 1994].
And just recently, I started looking again on YouTube, and oh my God, this stuff is lame. It’s just lame what these guys are doing. It’s fake. It’s lame. It’s stupid. It’s gay. It doesn’t make any sense.
It’s lame, it’s not even a sport, it’s lame, it’s bad acting, it’s just lame. Sorry to all the fans of WWE. I’m just being honest, I’m giving my opinion. Free country right? I think it’s lame. I hadn’t seen it for 20 years, I knew it was there.
Never watched Brock fight, I never watched CM Punk fight, why did nobody warn CM Punk what he was getting into? Of course, he can’t fight in the UFC. Of course, he can not do that. You should’ve been more honest. You should’ve warned that guy about what he was getting himself into. That man got mentally destroyed in the octagon.
If you look at his WWE stuff, I never watched his WWE stuff, but if you look at it you can already predict it beforehand. This man is going to have a bad experience in the UFC. He could have gotten really hurt.”
Alistair Overeem defeated WWE Legend & former UFC Heavyweight Champion ‘The Beast’ Brock Lesnar at UFC 141 on December 30, 2011. Lesnar retired from MMA after this fight, but ended up returning for one last fight in 2016 at UFC 200.
