World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is not honoring Brock Lesnar with the respect he deserves, according to his ringside manager and promoter Paul Heyman. WrestleMania 32 was filled with moments which erupted the crowd at the AT&T Arena in Arington, Texas but Lesnar was devoid of the spotlight he deserves, Heyman feels.
The night saw the return of various past WWE legends which included the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley returning to decimate the League of Legends. It also saw NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal take part in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
The Rock made an amazing entrance at the event and also worked the crowd brilliantly. He made fun of the Wyatt family and also showed glimpses of his past wrestling brilliance. When he was attacked by Bray Wyatt and his honchos, John Cena made a special WrestleMania return to help The Rock defeat them.
Shane McMahon stole the show when he threw himself off the 20 foot tall Hell in a Cell against the Undertaker. The main event of the match featured champion Triple H vs. Roman Reigns. After a grueling 27 min. encounter, Reigns walked away as the new WWE world heavyweight champion.
Brock Lesnar’s feature match of the night was against Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose. Desipte it being a quality match, Lesnar dominated the proceedings and the bout failed to live up to the hype it generated.
Heyman however doesn’t feel that Lesnar gets the respect he deserves from the company. The 50-year-old believes that the fans are so engaged to the past, they fail to see what’s actually in front of them. He boasted of Lesnar’s achievements in NCAA, UFC and WWE, specially highlighted breaking the Undertaker’s streak in WrestleMania a couple of years ago.
Heyman also spoke of Lesnar getting his rematch for the WWE world heavyweight title but having a hard time finding true opponents for The Beast Incarnate. He pointed the reason for it being no one wants to get humiliated by Lesnar in the ring.
