• “I think he was the best wrestler in the world” – WWE Title Holder On Brock Lesnar
In a recent interview with TalkSport, WWE NXT UK Champion WALTER was asked whether he would like to wrestle ‘The Beast’ Brock Lesnar and ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe at some point in the future.
Here’s what the Imperium leader had to say:
“Brock Lesnar is like, I think – I don’t know how long he doesn’t wrestle, two years? – for the years before that, I think he was the best wrestler in the world.
Nobody was smarter, nobody drew more money, nobody knew how to protect themselves [like he did]. He wasn’t there all the time [and] I love that presentation about him. I think he’s fantastic.
Some of the best matches in WWE in the recent years have had Brock involved because he’s fantastic. He’s going to look like a million bucks, but everybody who wrestles him is going to look like that as well, when they have a competitive match with him.
Obviously, that would be great to do [face Lesnar].
I’d love to wrestle Joe. We kind of filled the same spot, just in different generations. I think that makes it interesting.
When I was growing up and I was watching wrestling and started to look out for other wrestling to study and stuff like that, Joe was the man everywhere. He was the record champion in Ring of Honor.
He had the great match with [Kenta] Kobashi that I watched 10 times or something like that – I loved it. Joe did so much great stuff in wrestling, it would be my pleasure, obviously.”
