Brock Lesnar was undoubtedly one of the most controversial athletes in the modern era of WWE. Beyond fan approval, 'The Beast Incarnate' is the only superstar in history to have won a world title in mixed martial arts, professional wrestling and ultimately collegiate wrestling.
His last appearance in the ring dates back to the 36th edition of WrestleMania, which took place last year when he was forced to hand over his title to the rampant Drew McIntyre. In a long interview with Alex McCarthy for 'talkSPORT', current SmackDown star Daniel Bryan spoke highly of the former Universal champion.
The leader of the 'Yes Movement', had the opportunity to take on Lesnar at the Survivor Series in 2018, helping to make more thrilling a pay-per-view that had been quite fluctuating until then. In particular, Daniel wanted to take apart one of the main labels associated with Brock, which is that he does not love wrestling and only gets into the ring to collect the money.
Daniel Bryan was 'thrilled' to face Brock Lesnar
“I think few people appreciate how great Brock Lesnar is and how important he is to the history of this business. I also think Brock loves putting on his character, even though many are convinced otherwise.
Wrestling is a job for him, so it's clear he needs to be paid, I don't find anything wrong with that. You can be sure that his eyes light up when he enters the scene. This is the crux of the matter," Daniel Bryan explained.
Bryan then recalled his fight with the Beast: “I was absolutely thrilled, I have wanted to face it for a long time. We all knew it was a really weird match, but maybe it's that weirdness that made it even more fun and enjoyable ”- he commented.
Fans and insiders have often wondered if we will ever see Lesnar on the square again, a question that has given rise to conflicting opinions. WWE has now accustomed us to sensational twists and WrestleMania is just around the corner.
Lesnar as the match was always on his wishlist. Bryan, however, had envisioned a different setup for his dream clash against The Beast Incarnate. Daniel Bryan was the 'Planet's Champion' and a heel when he took on Brock Lesnar.
The Leader Of The Yes Movement said he would have loved to have been a babyface in the match. Brock Lesnar might not show up on WWE TV all that often, but that doesn't mean he isn't invested in the business. The former WWE Universal Champion has not been seen since WrestleMania 36, and we currently have no updates on WWE's creative plans for the veteran.
