Vince McMahon and Dana White are both polarizing figures, but Brock Lesnar knows them both well.
Brock Lesnar recently appeared in an Interview with Pat McAfee ahead of his WWE Elimination Chambers match on 19th Feb. During the Interview. The WWE icon talked about his humble beginnings to the criticism of the current WWE roster.
Lesnar was asked to compare Vince McMahon to Dana White, the president of UFC.
“I really can’t compare the two guys. Honestly, my relationship with Vince is so different than it is with Dana over the years. Vince and I have had a love/hate relationship for the last 20 years, but it’s been good. We got a lot of water under the bridge. I have a lot of respect for both men.”
“I met Vince when I was younger. I look at Vince more as a father figure because I’ve learned a lot of things from him, and I was able to carry those things over and handle business with Dana. Vince is a self made person. So is Dana,” Lesnar added
Lesnar shades some contrast between the differences in his relationship with the two, Dana and McMahon. On his relationship with Dana, “Um, yeah, Dana’s alright. I mean, I got a lot of money from him. … I probably should’ve got paid more.” Lesnar pointed out it’s just a different business approach when interacting with either of them.
Lesnar considers Vince McMahon a father figure to him, and given how young he was when McMahon found him, it does makes sense that he shares that type of view of him.
