Becky Lynch and Brock Lesnar returned to WWE at SummerSlam and offered an enormous injection for the corporate in the way in which of star energy.
Nevertheless, former WCW head honcho Eric Bischoff believes that whereas Lynch might have an excellent impression on WWE, Lesnar might not.
Talking on his podcast 83 weeks, Bischoff waxed lyrical about Lynch’s success.
“I’m actually enthusiastic about the place Becky Lynch can go, I actually, actually am. I’m not simply saying for the WWE Ladies’s Division, I imply as a expertise male or feminine. It doesn’t matter.
“I feel she’s one of many hottest properties in WWE proper now, and if she will come again and recapture among the identical power and connectivity to the viewers earlier than she obtained pregnant and had a child, if she will recapture that – I’m positive she will – I feel she’s going to be an enormous a part of WWE’s success story going ahead.”
Nevertheless, he doesn’t share the identical optimism for Lesnar if WWE sticks with the presentation they’ve had for The Beast since his preliminary return in 2012.
“Brock, I don’t really feel the identical approach about Brock,” Bischoff stated. “I’ve nothing however respect for Brock, admiration for Brock. He’s one among a sort. There will not be sufficient superlatives, we don’t have sufficient time to cowl all of the little superlatives that I can throw Brock’s approach.
“But when Brock’s strategy to the enterprise doesn’t change, in different phrases, if he’s that unbeatable mountain, simply destruction machine and there’s no person that’s actually competitors for him, I’ve been there and executed that and seen sufficient of it. Now if he’s coming again and there’s extra depth to his character and extra vary to his tales and he offers just a little?
“As a result of Brock was a taker, Brock simply ate all people up. Brock Lesnar vs. Kofi Kingston in seven seconds? I’m sorry, that’s not attention-grabbing.”
Bischoff wish to see Lesnar discover his character extra and undergo some turmoil.
Many wrestlers have praised Lesnar’s mind for the wrestling enterprise and the way sensible he’s at defending his character. Bischoff, who labored on SmackDown as lately as 2020, believes sample will probably be to WWE’s detriment ultimately.
“That’s simply shifting the chess items round the way in which you suppose the chest items must be moved round. That sort of factor doesn’t curiosity me in any respect. Give me nice competitors, give me Brock promoting, give me Brock starting to doubt Brock and having some inside struggles as a personality?
“Put Brock Lesnar in a scenario the place there’s some doubt as to the result and the top of a narrative? I’m all in as a result of Brock is clearly able to doing something he chooses to do as a performer.
“If Brock’s strategy – as a result of Brock’s strategy will probably be WWE’s strategy. He has that a lot stroke. If the strategy to storytelling with Brock and his character is actually the identical because it was earlier than he left, I don’t suppose it’s a constructive factor [for WWE]. I actually don’t.”
