• Booker T Comments On Brock Lesnar Getting A UFC Heavyweight Title Shot
During a recent appearance on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T talked about Universal Champion Brock Lesnar returning to UFC, some similar cases like Brock’s where the controversies brought more eyes and his next fight against Daniel Cormier.
Below are the highligths:
On controversy bringing more eyes to the sport:
“I think MMA fans need to realize that it is entertainment, first and foremost. Every sport, I don’t care what it is, controversy always seems to bring more eyes to the sport. Whether it is because of steroids in Baseball that caused Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire to hit more home runs, or whether it was Muhammad Ali talking about Joe Frazier, there was eyes on him, same with Brock Lesnar.”
On Brock fighting Daniel Cormier next:
“With him coming to UFC and causing havoc, I know a lot of fans aren’t wanting it. I am sure that the UFC is eating it up. To bring CM Punk into the UFC it was all about buyrates. Giving the fans from the pro wrestling world to get into the UFC world because right now the UFC is struggling for stars. Let’s just get it out there. Daniel Cormier wouldn’t have had to move from Light Heavyweight to Heavyweight if he had someone to fight.
That is just clear to me. With Brock Lesnar coming over, who better to fight DC than Brock Lesnar? I mean, come on. It’s one of those chances there again to make the professional wrestler look back, but Brock Lesnar is the real deal and is capable of going there and beating Daniel.”
• Top NJPW Star Mocks Roman Reigns
Top NJPW star Tama Tonga and top WWE star Roman Reigns have been feuding on Twitter these days. The leader of the “Firing Squad” sub-faction of the Bullet Club was quite brutal with his jabs that were aimed at The Big Dog.
Tonga pointed out that Reigns’ hand gesture is quite hilarious. He copied the gesture and mocked Reigns during his entrance at the G1 Classic Tournament.
