• Paul Heyman Responds To RAW Star Calling Brock Lesnar “Lazy”
During a recent Inside The Ropes event, Paul Heyman talked about RAW wrestler Dean Ambrose’s appearance on the Stone Cold Podcast, Ambrose calling Brock Lesnar lazy & more.
Below are the highlights:
On Dean Ambrose’s attitude during his appearance on the Stone Cold Podcast:
“Ask Steve Austin how he feels about Dean Ambrose. I’m sure he’s ‘that kid came on my podcast and I don’t know what the hell, I ask him a question, and what the hell he’s half asleep on me’. If Steve Austin could have come out of retirement at that moment, I’m sure he would have b*tch slapped Dean Ambrose all over his face.”
On Ambrose calling Brock Lesnar “lazy” after their WrestleMania 32 match:
“Anybody who thinks Brock Lesnar is lazy is not taking a look at the right circumstances. Come on, lazy? Lazy got him to an NCAA Division I Heavyweight championship? Lazy got him to knock out Randy Couture in his fourth MMA fight? The greatest heavyweight champion of all time, and Brock Lesnar didn’t grapple Randy Couture, take down, tap him out. He knocked out Randy Couture!”
On Vince McMahon not wanting Ambrose to change:
“That’s what Vince McMahon wants Dean Ambrose to be, and that’s what Dean Ambrose is. If Dean Ambrose had done something so egregious that Vince McMahon didn’t like it, then he wouldn’t be working here anymore, so obviously he’s doing something that Vince McMahon likes.”
