Brock Lesnar Doesn’t Care About What Stephanie McMahon Says

The relationship between the WWE and Brock Lesnar took an interesting turn this week. Lesnar was asked about recent comments in regards to the WWE promoting his UFC 200 fight and his response is making headlines.

This whole Brock Lesnar fighting in UFC while under a WWE contract story is getting more bizarre by the day. It’s been a couple of weeks since the fight was announced and yet media and fans still can’t figure out why it’s happening and what’s in it for the WWE. Stephanie McMahon was asked about it earlier this week and says that the WWE really has no promotional interest in this fight.

In Brock Lesnar’s case it was really a special case that we are allowing him to do this fight. But like you said it’s not really a cross-promotional opportunity, but we are allowing him to participate in that fight.

We are not supporting the fight necessarily but, again, it’s not a competitor to us and the more that our superstars, that’s how we refer to our talent, the more they do outside of WWE, the more awareness it generates and the broader the audience can be that is then brought back into our properties. So we recognize the value of that.”

Brock was asked about the WWE not supporting his UFC fight, Stephanie McMahon’s remarks in particular, and he pulled no punches with his response.

I don’t know, I don’t care what she says.

Lesnar was further asked about how a loss may affect his drawing power as a WWE superstar and probably offered the best response I have heard to a question in years.

I really don’t give a sh*t.

Brock was also asked about the fans interest in him returning, which was a pretty dumb question if you know anything about Brock’s relationship with his fans which is non-existent.

This isn’t about my fans. This is about me living my life, being the person that I want to be. Granted, without the fans and everything, none of us would be able to do this. I get that. But I don’t sit up at night wondering is my drawing power gonna be hurt or are my WWE fans gonna tune in and watch me do this. I don’t give two sh*ts about that. This is about me. I want to get in there and be an athlete again. That’s what this is about.”

Candidly, I am fascinated to see how this whole thing plays out. Does Brock’s dismissive comments about remarks made by the CEO’s daughter strain his relationship with the WWE? Win or loss, there are still questions to be answered. The UFC will be red hot on Brock if he wins and how does that play out? If Brock loses, how is he promoted by the WWE when he does return?

As exciting as this fight will be, I am more excited for the aftermath.
