• Big Show On Who Could Be The Next Breakout Star In WWE
During a recent appearance on The Steve Austin Show, Big Show talked about who he thinks could be the next breakout star, women’s division and Charlotte Flair, the subject of Brock Lesnar passing the Universal title & more.
Below are the highlights:
On who he thinks could be the next breakout star:
“I think Elias has a lot of good things in the future ahead of him. He’s a good kid and he’s a hard worker. They always say, ‘he’s got a hell of a body on him.’ He [has] done a lot of things right. They built him along the way. They haven’t had him beat a lot of people. He [has] earned his wins. He [has] done his losses. Like, he’s building a good, solid foundation. But I think Elias is a good pick. He is. That’s a good call.”
On women’s division and Charlotte Flair:
“I’d look for a lot of breakout stars also, now, I know you’ll probably think I’m crazy, but if you look at the women’s division. I mean, they have stepped up the competition. Have you seen the matches that Charlotte [has] been having and the stuff that she’s doing? I mean, thank God I’m not following her right now. She is just laying it down. Talk about a complete change from when I knew her in her teens and when she was in college. And now, the commitment that she [has] made, and I’m just blown away by the talent she has.”
On the subject of Brock Lesnar passing the Universal Title:
“That’s where we’re at now. Who can beat Brock Lesnar? Brock Lesnar is no joke, no comedy, no ha-ha, no fun and games. He’s a legit champ. Whoever beats Brock Lesnar is going to be made and that’s what you want out of somebody that drops the title, not passing the title like you’re passing a volleyball back and forth across the net. Now, whoever becomes the champion is somebody that is going to have really earned it through trial and fire.”
On who has the best backstage game since Hulk Hogan:
“Brock Lesnar scares everybody in the arena and backstage. He has got the best backstage game since Hulk Hogan as far as freaking everybody out.”
