Eric Bischoff Says He Doesn't Understand Brock Lesnar's WWE Universal Championship Run

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 07/05/18


Eric Bischoff appeared on Sky Sportsí Lock Up podcast and discussed Brock Lesnarís WWE Universal championship run. Bischoff was asked about Lesnarís part-time status in relation with his holding the championship and said he didnít get why it was being done.

ďIím ambivalent about it,Ē said Bischoff (per Wrestling Inc). ďI donít understand it. And I like Brock Lesnar. I think heís an amazing performer, heís an amazing character. As an athlete, I donít think thereís anybody, other than perhaps Kurt Angle, thatís anywhere near his stratosphere. So thereís a lot of things I like about Brock Lesnar, but his presence in WWE to me is almost a non-issue. I hate to say irrelevant, but the title doesnít really mean all that much. Brockís character, the way it is being positioned, doesnít really mean anything to me as a fan or a viewer. I donít feel like thereís any real focus on him or his title. So, it seems to be a convenient afterthought more than anything else.Ē

Bischoff did note that Hulk Hogan had a similar part-time deal in WCW, being contracted to appear in four PPVs a year, and that he understands the idea of Lesnar being used more as a special attraction, but that Lesnar is ďneither here nor thereĒ in terms of storyline.
