Top journalist discusses Brock Lesnar's impact

Brock Lesnar played his last WWE match at Crown Jewel, where he was defeated by Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Interference from Jey and Jimmy Uso was instrumental in allowing the 'Tribal Chief' to claw victory in Saudi Arabia.

In the post-pay-per-view episode of SmackDown, the Beast attacked several roster members, including Adam Pearce, from whom he was suspended indefinitely. Last week, it was announced that the suspension was lifted and that Lesnar will be returning to SmackDown on Friday night.

All that remains is to wait a few days to know the further developments of the affair. In a lengthy interview with Sportskeeda, wrestling expert Bill Apter said Brock Lesnar would be even more successful in the 1970s and 1980s.

Bill Apter reflects on Brock Lesnar

“When I watch Brock Lesnar, legendary characters like Bruno Sammartino and Pedro Morales come to mind. A match between Brock Lesnar and Bruno Sammartino would have generated a hype that you cannot even imagine” - confided Apter.

"Lesnar would have been even more incredible if he had fought in the 70s and 80s. Imagine him against Billy Graham, they would have given birth to a crazy show ”- he added. Speaking of the Beast on his YouTube channel, former UFC star Chael Sonnen made some vitriolic statements.

“The truth is that Brock Lesnar is not a great wrestler, in fact, he has never had Olympic aspirations. In the NCAA Finals, he was awarded an opponent who weighed much less than him. There was over 25 kg of difference if I remember correctly.

I know my words won't please Brock, but I'm just describing reality”. Throughout his career, Lesnar has often been accused of being too selfish and of picking on rivals smaller than himself. A lot of talk has been made lately about the new WWE contract Brock Lesnar received to return to the company at SummerSlam.

Becky Lynch's current WWE contract was brought up last night on RAW as the reason other talents have been recently released. In a world where WWE cites budget cuts as the reason for all of the releases in the past couple of years, it's sad to think that people working there aren't making what they deserve.

Meltzer went as far as to say that an unknown player in the NFL still makes more than someone like Drew Gulak on the WWE roster.
