• Hall Of Famer Claims Brock Lesnar’s Recent Return Could Be A Bad Thing For WWE
On a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, Old School WCW Legend Eric Bischoff claimed that Brock Lesnar’s WWE return as a babyface at SummerSlam might not be a positive thing after all.
Here’s what the 2021 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“I have nothing but respect for Brock, admiration for Brock. He is one of a kind. There are not enough superlatives, we don’t have enough time to cover all the little superlatives that I can throw Brock’s way.
But if Brock’s approach to the business doesn’t change, in other words, if he’s that unbeatable mountain, just destruction machine and there’s nobody that’s really competition for him, I’ve been there and done that and seen enough of it. Now if he’s coming back and there’s more depth to his character and more range to his stories and he gives a little? Because Brock was a taker, Brock just ate everybody up. Brock Lesnar vs. Kofi Kingston in 7 seconds? I’m sorry, that’s not interesting.
That’s just moving the chess pieces around the way you think the chest pieces need to be moved around. That kind of thing doesn’t interest me at all. Give me great competition, give me Brock selling, give me Brock beginning to doubt Brock and having some internal struggles as a character? Put Brock Lesnar in a situation where there’s some doubt as to the outcome and the end of a story?
I’m all in because Brock is clearly capable of doing anything he chooses to do as a performer. If Brock’s approach – because Brock’s approach will be WWE’s approach. He has that much stroke.
If the approach to storytelling with Brock and his character is essentially the same as it was before he left, I don’t think it’s a positive thing [for WWE]. I really don’t.”
WWE has announced that Brock Lesnar will return on next week’s episode of Super SmackDown from Madison Square Garden.
He’s scheduled to face Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel 2021 in Saudi Arabia in October.
