Former WCW executive and WWE on-air performer Eric Bischoff recently appeared as a guest on the Sky Sports “Lock Up Podcast” for an in-depth interview.
During the interview, Bischoff shared his thoughts on the current title run of Brock Lesnar, who is in the middle of an interest contract situation with WWE.
“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.”
Bischoff continued, “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.”
