Brock Lesnar Addresses Claims That He’s Only With WWE For The Money WWE

Brock Lesnar has addressed claims that he’s not passionate about wrestling anymore, and is only with WWE for the money.

It is no secret that WWE treats Brock Lesnar matches as special attractions. Despite being one of the highest earners on the WWE roster, The current WWE Champion has only wrestled four matches in 2022, including his 2 minute stint in the men’s Royal Rumble, and his short run in the men’s Elimination Chamber bout.

In an interview with Newsday, Lesnar noted that he’s very passionate about pro-wrestling, pointing out that his character has been a prizefighter for most of his WWE career.

Believing that wrestlers can only give great performances if they’re passionate about the business, Lesnar said:

“I’ve put on some great (expletive) matches in my day. And you don’t do that without having a passion for the squared circle. I’m a man that for the last 25 years of my life just wanted to be left the [expletive] alone. I didn’t prostitute myself and put myself out there to be vulnerable to the media and be vulnerable to the next person that wanted to stick their claws into me.

“I just found out that it was easier for me to go and recharge my batteries and go be who I really wanted to be and hide that from the world. It’s just who I am. I’m a private person. I approach my life and fighting and wrestling like this is a job.

“It’s a career. I’m a prizefighter. I get into the octagon or the ring, I do my business, and I do it well, and I get paid for it. And so I’m very passionate about the business. But that was my character. For a long time, I had Paul Heyman speaking on my behalf.

“I didn’t have to participate on the microphone. I was just a demolition man. I think people, if they could see through all of it, would understand that I’ve had some really great matches in my career with a lot of different people. You don’t go to work, and put out a product like that if you don’t have passion for it.

Lesnar is set to face Roman Reigns in a WWE vs Universal Title Winner Takes All match at WrestleMania 38.
