I write this column knowing full well Lesnar has signed a new two year deal with the WWE, Brock reportedly got a hefty sum of money for his last few appearances, very few appearances that is. We still have Mania coming up and of course Lesnar will make a few more Raw appearances up to the "grand daddy of em all" WrestleMania. There is a question though of, was Brock worth the money?
His run was actually a bit strange to me this year, if you could call it a run. We had a storyline of him getting fired, what was it two or three times? Then quitting. Yeah, it was getting a little old. I mean what is the WWE going to do for the next two years, how many times can a guy get fired? Brock is an extremely talented wrestler and he could of been one of the all time greats if he stuck around WWE. Lesnar of course made a big name for himself in the UFC world and was able to demand more money with less appearances.
I don't know what Lesnar's contract negotiations where for the next two years but I hear it was about the same as this past year. I'm not so sure the WWE is making the right move with Lesnar, I actually wonder if they would be better off without him than doing these ridiculous very unbelievable storylines about him always getting fired or quitting. There could be another guy in Lesnar's place who could get over if they're going to use him less than part time. I don't know if it's Triple H getting more power behind the scenes or what but the WWE has been doing things more differently in the last year than we've ever seen in the history of the dominant wrestling company. We've seen a WWE champion for over a year but rarely main eventing for a year, and most of the main-eventers wrestle less than part time. Maybe it's time for the WWE to go back to the old school way of doing things?
Lesnar is good for business, there is no doubt about that but is he worth the big bucks he's demanding? I would personally have to say the WWE should sign Lesnar for more dates or just go without him, it becomes insulting to us wrestling fans after awhile that he main events Summerslam and he wrestles once a year. This goes back to the old school way of doing things, yes the WWE is entertainment but you have to show respect to the guys that show up ready to play 24/7. What do you think?
