The Brock Lesnar saga continues. An Extreme Rules match has been announced between Lesnar and WWE golden boy John Cena for the WWE’s April 29 Pay-Per-View. Lesnar gave the following interview last night on Monday Night Raw talking about his time with the UFC, explaining why he returned to the WWE and why he wants to put the smackdown on John Cena:
“I’m not a superstar, I’m an ass kicker. I am Brock Lesnar, that’s it. I left the WWE, everybody thought, here’s a guy, there’s no way in hell he’s gonna make it in the UFC, but I climbed that mountain and became UFC Heavyweight Champion of the world and I proved everybody wrong.
“Why did I come back to the WWE? This isn’t a feel-good moment. This isn’t ‘Oh I miss coming through the curtain, I miss all the fans.’ At the end of the day, I don’t care about anybody but Brock Lesnar. For me this is strictly business. We need a guy to legitimize this company and Brock Lesnar is that guy.
“We’re tired of John Cena’s bullcrap. John Cena is not the real guy. The only reason John is in the spot that he’s in is because I left. If I was still around for the last eight years, John Cena’s the guy that’d be carrying my bags into the building. There’s nothing about Brock Lesnar that’s fake. It was very evident last week when I took John Cena down and busted his mouth open. This is real.
“What’s running through John Cena’s mind? I don’t give a crap what’s running through his mind. What’s more important is what’s running down his leg. Piss. The guy’s scared. Sh***ting his pants is what he’s doing.
“This isn’t a wrestling match on April 29, this is an ‘Extreme Rules’ match. I got one objective in mind: Utter freakin’ chaos. Bring the pain to John Cena. I’m comin’ for a fight John Cena. What makes me happy? Beatin’ people up, that makes me happy.”
Lesnar is so good you might actually start questioning yourself if just maybe this is real. I mean he says it’s real. We saw Cena’s bloody mouth. Brock sure looks angry and intense. And it’s an “Extreme Rules” match — that must mean for this type of match they really fight, right?
Sadly, no. Technically, it means there are no-disqualifications and no-countouts. There are virtually no rules and the only way to win is by pinfall or submission. Lesnar has always been a captivating character and I’m sure it will all be quite entertaining on April 29, but any last vestige of interest he had in real combat was literally beat out of him on Dec. 30, 2011, by a 6-foot-5-inch 265-pound Dutchman who turned that sword on his chest into a butter knife.
