• UFC Legend, Who Is Set To Face Braun Strowman In His Pro-Wrestling Debut, Called Wrestling ‘Lame’ & ‘Fake’ Last Year

Former WWE RAW Tag Team Champions Authors Of Pain (now known as Legion Of Pain) have started their own promotion – Wrestling Entertainment Series (WES).

Their first pay-per-view will take place on June 4th at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham, England.

The main event of this show will feature UFC Legend Alistair Overeem (who defeated Brock Lesnar at UFC 141) squaring off against former WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman.

Below is the poster for this event:

An interesting thing about Overeem coming to the world of pro-wrestling is that he called it ‘lame’ and ‘fake’ last year.

Below is what he said on The MMA Hour in August 2021:

“The thing is with that whole wrestling thing, I watched it when I was 8, 9, 10 years old.

Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, huge fan of those guys. Honky Tonk Man. Great, funny. Andre The Giant. I stopped watching after that, so I’m not watching since [1992, 1993, 1994].

And just recently, I started looking again on YouTube, and oh my God, this stuff is lame. It’s just lame what these guys are doing. It’s fake. It’s lame. It’s stupid. It’s gay. It doesn’t make any sense.

It’s lame. It’s not even a sport. It’s just lame. It’s bad acting. It’s just lame. Sorry for all the fans of WWE, but I’m just being honest. I’m just giving my opinion. Free country, right?

I think it’s lame, and because I hadn’t seen it for 20 years. I never watched Brock fight. I never watched CM Punk fight. I knew they were from WWE.”
