After a long hiatus, Brock Lesnar made his return to WWE television last year during the SummerSlam event. He wasted no time in starting a feud with Roman Reigns as well. Heyman also commented on Lesnar’s current character.
Brock Lesnar came back as a babyface, which certainly surprised fans. Lesnar has been displaying a lot more personality since his return and fans have been enjoying his new side of The Beast Incarnate.
While speaking on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Paul Heyman talked about Brock Lesnar’s current personality in WWE. Heyman then proceeded to explain why it took so long for Lesnar to show off his personality.
“Brock Lesnar has a great sense of humor. It is simply the fact that Lesnar never really found the time in WWE to display it. He displayed some of it in UFC, and this is just a part of his personality; this is what he’s like on his farm. This is what he’s like, when Brock hunts. This is offseason Brock, and he brought offseason Brock to fight season this time around because he was gonna have to show a different side of his personality because I was attached to the hip of Roman Reigns.
He didn’t need to. It wasn’t time yet. It’s the same reason why you didn’t see The Tribal Chief in 2012. You had to see the Samoan badass of The Shield. You had to see The Big Dog, and you keep on elevating and enhancing and upgrading until finally, Roman Reigns was ready to reveal The Head Of The Table. This is part of Brock Lesnar’s personality. Brock Lesnar is not a one-dimensional human being, barely a human being at all. He is a beast.”
Gable Steveson also believes Brock Lesnar’s good guy character is truly how he is. We’ll have to see whether Lesnar will be able to defeat Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38 or not.
