Brock Lesnar apparently isn’t the most popular performer in the WWE locker room.
It’s no secret that Lesnar is a polarizing figure and a massive draw. From his part-time WWE shenanigans to his antics post-UFC 226, Lesnar has proven to get a significant amount of leeway due to his appeal. It’s more true than ever before as Lesnar will be getting a UFC heavyweight title shot despite not officially winning a fight since 2010 and being popped by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) following his last return.
A trip to the WWE “Universe” reveals that Lesnar is the Universal Champion despite not having a title defense since The Greatest Royal Rumble back in April. It has even turned into a storyline, but the talent doesn’t appear to be too thrilled. One of those names allegedly is Seth Rollins.
Speaking to Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, Cormier revealed a text message from the former two-time WWE World Heavyweight champion:
“Maybe that’s why he’s (Lesnar) mad at me because I’m friends with Seth Rollins. I got a text message from Seth right after the fight, he goes, ‘congratulations now go kick Brock’s ass.'”
Cormier himself did enjoy his confrontation with Lesnar. After his first-round knockout win over Stipe Miocic, Cormier called out Lesnar. “The Beast Incarnate” hopped inside the Octagon and shoved “DC.” Cormier wasn’t upset in the least:
“I was really thinking, ‘I’m having a WrestleMania moment.’ That was going through my head. I was like, ‘I am having a real WrestleMania moment,’ and it was awesome. I was having so much fun being in there from the fight, getting the two belts. The only way Dana could stop us was by handing me a second title. Because now it was time for pictures and he did that and I was like, ‘okay Brock, get out.'”
Do you think Brock Lesnar will ditch the WWE again in favor of fighting?
