– Bill Goldberg recently spoke with Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald, and during the interview Goldberg had the following to say about Brock Lesnar at UFC 200:
“If you look at the UFC business model, they’ve always professed that they put the best fighters out there, and I’m not saying this because we’re talking about Brock. I’m saying this as an example. The best fighters out there on the planet are the ones they want to put in front of the cameras for people to see. If you look at what [Scott] Coker does at Bellator, they’ve been getting some unbelievable ratings, but those rating aren’t for the guys who have the best records.
So we’re seeing Dana White pull a little Vince McMahon, pull a little swerve, untraditional programming for himself, realizing that Brock Lesnar is the biggest draw in [MMA] pay-per-view history I would imagine. So I think it’s a very smart business move. I think it’s great for [UFC] and WWE. I think it’s a cool cross-promotion that people never saw coming.”
– At a recent WWE live event, Kevin Owens took a shot at Brock Lesnar during his match against Sami Zayn. When Owens spotted a fan wearing a Lesnar shirt, Owens exclaimed “why don’t you take off that Brock Lesnar shirt and get a shirt of somebody who’s actually a professional wrestler?”
