A former WWE name has recently given their opinion on the “perfect” use of a WWE star in the Royal Rumble.
Speaking on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, the legendary former promoter, manager and booker said:
“Number 12 was Brock Lesnar and here we go. And I figured that they were as I said, three people earlier they were starting to line up some cannon fodder for a star.
“And that spot in the Royal Rumble goes back to Pat Patterson, you know, first laying the first ones out, you always try to have, Diesel had a moment, one year and whatever.”
Lesnar would, as pointed out by Cornette, eliminate Santos Escobar, Angelo Dawkins and Chad Gable, then suplexing Drew McIntyre and Sheamus before encountering Gunther for a moment.
Cornette would then go on to say:
“Lashley comes in and spears Brock and Drew and Sheamus and slams Gunther and Brock goes for the F5 and Lashley drops out of it and clotheslines Brock over the top and eliminates him and that got a pop, and also that’s the best use of Brock.
“In the Royal Rumble, he can’t be in there doing the spot with all the other normal guys where he sits on his ass in a corner and you know acts like he’s kind of selling and keeps an eye on what everybody else is doing or disappears for a while or gets beat down by some schlub for a minute. You can’t do that with Brock Lesnar, it kills him.
“So he came in, destroyed a bunch of sh*t, or destroyed a bunch of people, or dumped a bunch of people.
“And then, you know got lucky clothesline by Lashley. This is obviously continuing.
“And then he stays around ringside, tearing the desk up and shoving manhandling referees and the next guy coming out is Baron Corbin and he meets him at ringside, Brock goes and gives him an F-5 on the floor and then f*cking wanders around and stalks off. That was perfect for Brock.”
Following his appearance in the Royal Rumble, it was recently reported that Lesnar is “supposed to be” at Elimination Chamber.
The next WWE Premium Live Event takes place on February 18 in Montreal, Quebec in Canada.
