Brock Lesnar: Advocate Paul Heyman says Lesnar is better than John Cena and Daniel Cormier. Calls his client a once-ever athlete.
In a recent interview with CBS, Paul Heyman the advocate to Brock Lesnar spoke about his client and compared him with two of the greats of WWE and UFC. John Cena is a 16-time World Champion in the WWE and is considered one of, if not, the biggest Star in the Promotion. Daniel Cormier is the current UFC heavyweight champion and the no.1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC. However, that didn’t bother the charismatic expounder as he proudly declared Lesnar a once-ever athlete.
“Brock Lesnar, as I’ve said forever, is the only being in history to hold the NCAA Division I Championship, the UFC Heavyweight Championship, and the top titles, whether it’s the WWE Title or Universal Title, in WWE. When you take a look at that, there’s a reason for it: Brock Lesnar is a once-ever athlete. If Daniel Cormier could be WWE Champion, I assure you he would be. But he can’t pull them both off. If John Cena could have been UFC Champion, I assure you he would have been. Be he couldn’t pull both off.”
“Brock Lesnar can walk seamlessly between those two universes, dominate each of them at the same time if he chooses. And there is no one else on the face of the planet that can make that claim, with the possible exception of Ronda Rousey if she were so inclined. To have someone like this on your roster is something that WWE has in its hip pocket that trumps all. There’s no one else out there that can make the claim that they have an athlete the caliber of Brock Lesnar.”
“UFC may have the best MMA fighters in the world, but they can’t also be the best sports entertainers. There may be other sports entertainment properties out there, and they can claim to have great in-ring performers, but none that can walk into UFC and become a champion. WWE has the one being on the face of the planet who can do both.”
Paul Heyman went on to compare him with even more legends from other sports:
“I think the general public has always been aware of what a unique athlete Brock Lesnar is and how rare it is to have the opportunity to see Brock Lesnar in action. It’s the equivalent of understanding the greatness of Michael Jordan while he was playing. It’s the equivalent of understanding the greatness of a Babe Ruth or Ty Cobb while they were playing. Roger Federer, while he’s playing at his peak. Bjorn Borg. People who not only change the game, but dominate in a fashion that no one else could dominate. That’s Brock Lesnar.”
Brock Lesnar is the current Mr. Money in the bank, having won the ladder match coming out as the surprise entrant. His participation was so heavily guarded that it is reported that except Ali, no other participant knew that Lesnar was going to win.
His victory was met with a huge groan and sigh. However, Lesnar has slowly become one of the most entertaining acts in the WWE with his BeastBox gimmick. It is still currently unknown when and against whom will the Beast Cash in but as long as he continues the Beatbox gimmick, the fans won’t mind him holding on to the briefcase for a little while longer.
