Brock Lesnar spoke with The Wrestling Press regarding his run in WWE and what it has done for his MMA career.
“These guys, they just don’t have another life. When they go home, they really canâ€™t get out of tune with their on-stage persona. Thereâ€™s really no time. I think the biggest thing is thereâ€™s really no downtime for the human body to recover, and more importantly, for their mind to recover where youâ€™re constantly on the road, and in a program where you canâ€™t get outside to take an outside look at whatâ€™s going on â€” guys resort to all kinds of extracurricular activities.”
On MMA after the WWE:
“I’m not stupid â€” without the WWE, the WWE made me a household name and increased my value tenfold before I even pursued the UFC. Could I be where I am today without the WWE? Probably not. Could I be drawing the same numbers that Iâ€™m drawing? Probably not. I brought a lot of fans over, a lot of crossover fans that I brought, just from the general public and WWE fans, I believe.”
Nice to see him tip his hat to his roots.
