Former UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier interviewed WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar for ESPN after WrestleMania 39: Night 2. Lesnar defeated Omos in the opening match for Night 2 of the two-day event.
During the interview, Cormier asked Lesnar if he has an interest in a matchup against Gunther and challenging Omos. Lesnar responded by saying he likes the challenge and the matchup.
However, one of the more interesting questions Cormier asked was if Lesnar wants to be champion again. Lesnar seemed open the idea but pointed out that he really doesn’t need a championship title run at this point in his career.
“We all want to be a champion, but I don’t think at this point in my career that I really need it. I would like another opportunity at it. If things worked out that way, yeah. But things are crazy in this business.”
This statement from Lesnar may come as a surprise to some fans who have seen him dominate the wrestling scene in the past. However, it’s worth noting that Lesnar has been focusing more on his personal life and business ventures in recent years. He also hasn’t been a regular presence on WWE programming, only making sporadic appearances.
It will be interesting to see if WWE decides to book him in a championship feud in the coming months or if Lesnar will continue to focus on other endeavors outside of the wrestling ring.
