Eric Bischoff Talks Brock Lesnar's Title Reign, Says There's No Focus On Him Or The Title

Eric Bischoff Talks Brock Lesnar's WWE Title Reign, Says There's No Focus On Him Or The Title
Former Raw GM and WCW President Eric Bischoff was asked about Lesnar's current title run on Sky Sports' Lock Up podcast, and shared his thoughts on the subject.

"I'm ambivalent about it," said Bischoff. "I don't understand it. And I like Brock Lesnar. I think he's an amazing performer, he's an amazing character. As an athlete, I don't think there's anybody, other than perhaps Kurt Angle, that's anywhere near his stratosphere. So there's 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 doesn't really mean all that much.

"Brock's character, the way it is being positioned, doesn't really mean anything to me as a fan or a viewer. I don't feel like there's any real focus on him or his title. So, it seems to be a convenient afterthought more than anything else."

Bischoff added that Hulk Hogan had a similar deal with WCW, as he was originally contracted for four pay-per-views a year. He understands the logic that Lesnar is being used more as a special attraction in the WWE than a regular character, but Lesnar is "neither here nor there" from a storyline perspective.
