Eric Bischoff reveals if Brock Lesnar will ever wrestle again. The beast incarnate hasn’t been seen on WWE TV since Wrestlemania 36.
Brock Lesnar’s last appearance in a WWE ring was back in Wrestlemania 36 when he relinquished the WWE title to Drew McIntyre in an empty arena. He hasn’t been seen or mentioned on WWE television since and many have wondered if they’ve already seen the last of him.
The former UFC and WWE champion has only wrestled 11 times since January 2019. This has led many to believe that it is not too farfetched to imagine that he may never return to the promotion. Eric Bischoff has now chimed in with his opinion on the matter.
Eric Bischoff reveals if Brock Lesnar will ever wrestle again
On a recent episode of the 83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff podcast, the former manager of WWE Raw addressed Brock Lesnar.
“If there’s anybody that’s qualified to say never say never, that would be me,” Bischoff said.
“I just can’t allow myself to think there’s a situation where he’s never going to come back. I don’t think he wants to. Let’s start out with the reality of it: he certainly doesn’t need to. Then it comes down to want to.
“We’re looking at headlines now that Mike Tyson is talking about coming out of retirement. None of these people need to, they want to. They miss the action, they miss the rush. You can’t get the high that you get as an athlete or performer.
“Do I think there will be a point where Brock Lesnar wants to come back? I do, because Brock Lesnar has been an athlete his entire life, been a competitor his entire life. His entire life he’s had a goal, a match.”
“When you get that bug, that desire to perform, it doesn’t go away no matter what your situation is.
“I wouldn’t expect we’ll see him back anytime soon because I know it takes a while for that want to begin to grow in your soul, but I think he comes back.”
Lesnar adds credibility and believability to WWE
Bischoff added that the former UFC champion adds to the WWE’s credibility and has been worth the huge investment by the promotion.
“You have to know how much money WWE has invested in Brock Lesnar over the years; and the other part of that equation if you’re being honest and not just being a hater regardless of how you feel about Brock, if you don’t know how much money Brock has generated for the WWE.
“The answer to my question is you can’t. Then it really breaks down to have I enjoyed watching Brock Lesnar over the years? I think for the most part the answer is yes. I have always enjoyed the intensity and believability Brock brings to all of his matches.”
“He allows me to put my guard down; not feel a little silly for being interested in the product in the first place so for me yeah, I’ve enjoyed watching Brock and he’s added credibility and believability to the product. None of us other than the financial floor in WWE can really answer this question.”
