Brock Lesnar was absent from WWE television after dropping the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. That changed at WWE SummerSlam last year, where he made his shocking return to WWE television and confronted Roman Reigns. Brock officially came back as a babyface, much to the delight of fans.

Brock Lesnar made his WWE debut back in 2002 and he was immediately booked as an unstoppable force who ran roughshod over talents in the company. This includes legends such as Ric Flair.

Ever since his initial return to the company in 2012, Brock Lesnar has been paid a ton of money as part of his contract. This has led to a lot of criticism from fans, who believe Lesnar’s sporadic appearances do not warrant the hefty salary he earns.

While speaking on the Wooooo Nation UNCENSORED, Ric Flair talked about Brock Lesnar’s performance at the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view. Flair gave massive props to Lesnar for his character and stated that he more than deserves the massive salary he gets.


They like to believe in somebody. I mean, as a babyface, you can look at Brock Lesnar, not only because he’s a phenomenal athlete. They know when he’s [Brock Lesnar] gonna kick someone’s ass, and that’s what the fans like.

You look at Brock, and he’s real. Roman Reigns, and he’s real. You look at Randy Orton, and he’s real. These guys are big, muscular; they’re larger than life.

So when people are b*tching about him getting paid a lot, don’t make it don’t mistake. The fact that he earns it and he deserves it.”

Brock Lesnar is set to make an appearance on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown as well. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for The Beast Incarnate.
