Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar took part in a UFC conference call on Thursday to promote UFC 200 on July 9 and was quite vocal according to The Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online.

During the call, Lesnar was asked about a comment by WWE’s Stephanie McMahon in a recent interview with Business Insider where she was asked about Lesnar returning to UFC adding, “We are not supporting the fight necessarily.”

Lesnar, in response, didn’t seem to take too kindly to her comments.

“I don’t care what she says. I really don’t give a sh*t. This isn’t about my fans. This is about me living my life, being the person I want to be. Granted, without the fans and everything, none of us would be able to do this. I get that.  But I don’t sit up at night wondering, ‘is my drawing power gonna be hurt’ or ‘are my WWE fans gonna tune in and watch me do this.’ I don’t give two sh*ts about that. This is about me. I want to get in there and be an athlete again. That’s what this is about.”

  1. Yeah, go on overpaying this guy to wrestle 4 or so matches a year and put him on your current videogame cover WWE. Continue to spit on the other guys & girls who bust their asses 300+ days a year and risk injury to be overworked by your pathetic company to give the keys to the kingdom to a greedy, odious man who has no problem saying he doesn’t give a sh*t about your company other than the money he gets from it.
    As a wrestling fan I was going for Brock at UFC 200 but ever since comparing himself to Bo Jackson, I hope Mark Hunt Holly Holms his ass to pop his over-inflated ego because Ronda Rousey is Miss humble compared to him.

  2. Yeah continue the pay the guy who draws more on shows,than everyone on your roster…. Continue to put the multi cross platform athlete that will actualyl sell your game to none wwe fans on covers
    Whilst your points on his ego might just be valid if you don’t understand why they do it and the marketing behind it.. You are an imbecile my friend. No no wwe 2k17 would get as many buys with Kevin owens on the cover right. Get a brain cell

  3. not sure why everyone’s getting bent out of shape about this, all his points are valid. he may not be the most tactful person in the world but the fact is this is what he wants to do, his contract allows for it, and he’s totally right to go for it without caring what some internet trolls think. those who are his fans are fine with it, those who don’t like him will whinge, welcome to the internet.

  4. Since you have so many brain cells tell us; does WWE really get their money’s worth out of him? I’m not sure they do. Does he really bring in enough money to make up for what they pay him minus all the PPVs no one bought when the WWE title wasn’t on the line while he was champion? Do non-Lesnar PPVs, aside from Wrestlemania, in general get more buys/Network subscriptions vs those he’s there for. Do the Raws he shows up for get on average higher ratings then when he’s not there? And how many fans go to events just to see him anyway? I’d like to see some hard numbers on that. Produce them if you can “mr. commissioner.”
    As for who should be on the cover of WWE2k17, oh I don’t know, someone who actually works there on a regular basis? Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, even Roman Reigns despite the mixed reactions he gets, or someone from WWE’s past or present who doesn’t publicly spit on the company. Maybe WWE should try harder to build on the talent it already has instead of always relying on part-timers or nostalgia acts to carry the company. How’s that for a multi brain cell strategy, “mr. commissioner”?

  5. WWE should not renew the contract with Lesnar or WWE should allow Undertaker to win against Lesnar at HIAC- this guy is just taking big money with limited appearances – WWE should invest that money for some other Wrestling Talents. Lesnar doesn’t care about Wrestling anymore. I hate him. Boooo..

  6. It’s called dyslexia being an imbecile is regardless of one’s spelling and grammar perhaps you should learn that spelling and grammar do not measure someones mental ability so unless you’re about to tell me you are special then you have no excuse. And clearly they do or they woukdnt have resigned him twice? Lol Vince and hhh both spoke about his marketing appeal on their buisness conference calls and what he adds to the buisness perhaps you should take the time to listen to one mate it may make you better informed. The statistics they have spoken about can not be denied. It seems you a random iwc fan boy is sat doubting Vince and the wwe on buisness. You can slag off his creative all you want champ but when it comes to the wwe you can’t doubt his buisness sense…..but keep trying. But honestly without joking or snide personal insults seriously catch one of those quarterly shareholders calls 90% boring stuff but if you want to learn more about the inner workings it’s a real eye opener to what the wwe sign people for. For example the social media market the wwe get almost double the amount of tweets and mentions when brock is in a segment or match.

  7. Why do they have to put it on TV? The wrestling websites are carrying it. Free publicity and it looks like WWE isn’t happy about it. They win without ever mentioning it.

  8. But WWE has very low regard for the “IWC”. For them, if it’s not on Raw, SmackDown, or WWE Network it doesn’t exist.

  9. Plenty of people can and do doubt WWE’s & Vince’s current business sense including past wrestlers & various other personalities like Mick Foley, the guy you’re pretending to be, who have all voiced their discern about WWE’s creative direction for the past 3 years or so. So industry insiders are also questioning WWE’s business decisions, not just “iwc fan boys.” And they’re not wrong. Various wrestling sites have all reported that general interest & TV ratings are at their lowest since 1997.
    So the only hard evidence you can point to about Lesnar’s mass appeal is that WWE gets more tweets during his segments. That makes them money how? Lesnar creating social media buzz isn’t tangible proof of his positive effect on WWE’s bank account. Since you have nothing better to do with your life than supposedly listen in on these long conference calls, let’s hear some specific details & hard evidence then about if WWE really gets their money’s worth out of him other than vagaries about marketing appeal. Or, once again, how about WWE tries harder to build on the talent it already has instead of always relying on part-timers or nostalgia acts to carry the company. It worked for the Rock & Wrestling Era, it worked for the Attitude Era, it even worked for the Ruthless Aggression Era. Then they won’t have to overpay millions of dollars to some arrogant, money-grubbing @sshole who 1) barely works for them, 2) can’t even hold his own microphone, and 3) publicly disrespects the company paying him all that money.
    It’s also my experience that only special people use the term “IWC”. The IWC doesn’t exist in a vacuum separate from “real” wrestling fans. Realistically every wrestling fan has access to the internet so the internet wrestling community and real fans who watch & go to wrestling events are all one in the same.

  10. i stopped reading after your totally retarded first paragraph when you compared people moaning about creative to business decisions……. that ends this conversation because you aint got a f***** clue they are 2 totally different things…. please god shut up

  11. When it comes to wrestling, business & creative decisions go hand in hand when it comes to who gets signed for how much and onto TV. If you don’t realize that then you don’t know what you’re watching. I also see you couldn’t cite even 1 concrete example if WWE is getting their money’s worth out of Lesnar and if he’s worth the disrespect he shows them. Go suck Brock’s cock, loser. Don’t get mad because all you know how to write are totally retarded paragraphs.
    And stop pretending to be Mick Foley! You soil his good name with your belligerent drivel.

  12. well keep ur money hungry ass in the UFC and don’t come back to WWE since ur sensitive to opinions u squash more ppl than u actually put over i don’t even know why everyone believes this man is far better than Roman in skill hell Roman may have flaws in his mic skill and his ring skill isn’t the best but hell we are witnessed to see the same german suplexes ended with a F5 with a Kimura Lock thrown in maybe everytime Lesnar is in a ring
