Mark Madden Says WWE Won’t Pay Lesnar More, WWE Doesn’t Consider Daniel Bryan A Star

Mark Madden, former WCW announcer and current radio DJ, spoke with Jim Ross and had some biting statements, here are a couple highlights:

On How WWE Looks at Daniel Bryan:
I look at Daniel Bryan and I look at the way he was treated at the Rumble (on Sunday) and really barely being in there, and no matter how many times the fans cheer him and chant ‘YES’…they (WWE) don’t believe in him. That’s obvious and i’ve heard that from the inside as well. WWE management doesn’t believe in him and they’ve convinced themselves that Bryan isn’t what’s over…that the ‘YES’ chant is what’s over and that’s obviously insane.

On WWE Not Wanting to Pay Lesnar For More Dates:
One thing I would do if I were WWE is…I don’t know what it would take to keep Brock but i’d pay him. I know for a fact that Brock would be working more now if they just pay him his ‘per date.’ They’ve been hesitant to do that. He’s told them that he would be available for more work if they just paid him the same per date. They need to do that because I think what the Royal Rumble showed is he is by far their most over performer….maybe right there with Daniel Bryan.
