– Jim Ross Comments On Rumors Of Brock Lesnar vs. Jon Jones Happening In WWE
As we noted before, UFC star Jon Jones failed an USADA drug test and might be facing a 4 year suspension, which would most likely lead to a Brock Lesnar – Jon Jones Super Fight in the UFC never happening.
Below is what WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross wrote about this situation on his blog:
“It is hard to remotely find any positive light at the end of the tunnel on this Jon Jones failed drug test fiasco that UFC has to deal with at this time. The anabolic steroid that Jon Jones apparently took is an old school steroid that some are questioning if it is even mass produced any longer. If that is accurate info, that might indicate that the is particular steroid was sought out. I’m told that is is a ‘roid that the East German’s used illegally years ago in Olympic competition because at that time it was extremely difficult to detect.
It is a legit head scratcher as to how this train wreck of a development could occur in a fighter’s camp who has already had multiple brushes with authorities. Many insiders are expecting Jones to be suspended for two years but the penalty could be longer. A four year suspension would essentially be the death penalty for Johnny Bones Jones’ MMA career as we know it.
How those running the camp and that are responsible for managing Jones have a great deal of explaining to do and let’s hope that the truth comes out on this matter sooner than later.
Rumors, and I stress rumors, have been casually discussed about Jones’ interest in a WWE appearance for quite some time and that might open the door for a pro wrestling bout versus Brock Lesnar in WWE and not a fight in UFC. Obviously, this potential match up would be a huge attraction and seems as if it’s is worthy of WrestleMania consideration if all the stars were aligned. Stay tuned.”
– Braun Strowman Says He’s Going To Take The Universal Title From Lesnar With No Mercy
During a recent interview with Omaha World Herald, #1 contender for the Universal Championship “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman talked about his upcoming match with Brock Lesnar at No Mercy 2017 & more. Below are the highlights:
On what’s next for him:
“Next is taking that title from Brock Lesnar. With no mercy. It’s no difference from any match to this. Give the crowd everything I have. The Monster will prevail.”
On getting a big reaction from the fans:
“Oh man, that’s the whole thing. That’s everything. I talked with some of the older guys, the veterans and stuff. I can see why no one ever wants to leave this business. When you hit a big move or your music hits and you go out and 12,000 people lose their minds. I just gave myself goosebumps thinking about it. There’s no feeling that can match that. The power that you feel. I’m in control. Everyone’s looking at me. This is my time. It’s one of a kind.”
On who he wants to face:
“Everyone. Send ’em all at the same time. I’m here to fight and here to put on a show.”
