• “Vince & Brock have a strange love affair” – Chris Jericho On If Brock Lesnar Will Leave WWE
While speaking to Gary Cassidy, AEW wrestler Chris Jericho discussed Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract expiring and if he thinks Lesnar will leave the company.
Below is what he said:
“The only reason why the rumor is there is somebody said ‘free agent’. I don’t think he’s really a free agent at all. I think it would take so much money to pry him away from Vince McMahon on Brock’s end and then for Vince to approve that…I mean, Vince has two billion dollars in the bank. What are you going to spend on Brock Lesnar that Vince isn’t going to match? And Vince and Brock have a strange love affair, to begin with.
I think it’s just another one of the dances that Vince and Brock like to have where Brock’s contract expires, Vince lets it expire, and then they stay away from each other until the next Saudi Arabia show or the next show that has people in the crowd, or WrestleMania, whatever it may be. So I don’t think Brock is really a free agent in the sense of the word, I just think he’s like currently not under contract right now.”
