Brock Lesnar discusses Daniel Bryan's retirement and says he has also suffered a high number of concussions, comments on Paul Heyman's role in his career
2016-02-16 22:25:03


Brock Lesnar appeared on ESPNews SportsCenter with Jonathan Coachman on Tuesday. The following are the highlights of the interview.

Lesnar on the most difficult of his accomplishments: Lesnar said everything has been difficult, but the NCAA Championship was the most difficult. He said he started training at five and it took him until he was 22 or 23 years-old to become champion. "All of my accolades, everything I've done, none of them have been easy," Lesnar said with a laugh.

Lesnar on his favorite WrestleMania moment: Lesnar laughed about his failed shooting star press. "I really don't have one. I'm looking forward to the future. I've never really looked behind." Lesnar said he's looking forward to winning the Triple Threat at Fastlane and then main eventing WrestleMania.

On the failed shooting star press: "It was one of those things where I never should have attempted or done the move. I hadn't done the move for a long time. And when you're a man of my size and athletic ability, do you really need to do something like that. At the time I thought it was a good WrestleMania moment. I guess it turned out to be one of those, not in my favor."

On Paul Heyman's role: "Without Paul Heyman, I don't think my career would be where it is. We're like bread and butter. We've been successful for a lot of years and it's just worked. You've got a guy who can talk the talk and then you've got the guy who can walk the walk. Form day one, Paul took me aside and talked with Vince McMahon about this character that he wanted to manage and things just kind of snowballed from there."

On Daniel Bryan's retirement: "I think he made a wise choice. Over the years, I can't even count on both my hands the amount of concussions I've probably had and didn't even know just because of the business that I've been in. When you can step away and put your health before your pride and the things that you love to do and understand that there's more to life that wrestling or fighting or football... you have to take a step back and understand that if you want some longevity, you have to make the right decision. I tip my hat to Daniel and I think he made the right decision."

Powell's POV: The number of concussions that Lesnar has suffered during his career is alarming, yet not at all surprising. One can only assume that WWE officials won't be thrilled that he put his own loose count out there, but it is a reality and something that played a part in Lesnar's decision to leave UFC. Speaking of which, Lesnar also commented on Rousey stating in an interview that she was temporarily suicidal after losing to Holly Holm. Lesnar said he learned from a coach long ago that you have to learn how to lose before you can actually win. Brock said he was a bad loser at one time, but you have to get back on the horse. He said one fight isn't going to make or break her career. Lesnar also said that he is a fan of Rousey and feels she will be successful in whatever she wants to do.
