During a recent appearance on “The Ric Flair Show”, former WWF Champion & TNA Hall of Famer Kurt Angle talked about the Brock Lesnar – Randy Orton SummerSlam 2016 match and the finish to that match. Below is what he said:
“Listen, Brock is never going to be known as the greatest UFC Fighter of all time. He has technique, but he is not a polished technician, like Anderson Silva or Royce Grace, or Conor McGregor, but what Brock Lesnar has is athletic ability, strength and his stamina. He is a Beast at 300 lbs, nobody moves like him.
Nobody has the strength like him, or the power he has. So, what he lacks in technique he makes up in athleticism, so Brock is one of a kind, one in a trillion. He can be good in whatever he wanted. If he would have stuck with Football he would have been a ten time allpro. He is definitely a bad a$$.
Thing is, with Brock, he is always going to excel in whatever he does. The thing that happened with Randy Orton at SummerSlam, Brock is a pro, he follows orders, he is not a guy to take things into his own hands. I don’t think Brock opening up his own parameters and say, you know what, I’m going to open this son of a bit*h up and I’m going to beat the hell out of him, screw Vince McMahon, screw the WWE, Brock is not like that. He has always been a pro so I find that very hard to believe that it wasn’t planned.”
