Alberto Del Rio: "Brock Lesnar is not what you imagine"

On April 6, 2014, Brock Lesnar consecrated himself by beating The Undertaker at WrestleMania 30 and breaking his legendary unbeaten streak. Between 2 April 2017 and 19 August 2018, he held the Universal title for a total of 503 days, resulting in the longest reign in the history of this belt.

The Beast is the only superstar to have won a world title in mixed martial arts, professional wrestling and collegiate wrestling. His extraordinary record includes five WWE Championships, one UFC Heavyweight Championship and one NCAA Division I Heavyweight Championship.

Webster's 44-year-old made his umpteenth WWE comeback at SummerSlam, starting a new feud with Roman Reigns. The two have already clashed in Crown Jewel, Saudi Arabia, where the 'Tribal Chief' came out victorious thanks also to the fundamental help of Jey and Jimmy Uso.

The next chapter of their rivalry will take place at Day 1, the pay-per-view which will be staged on January 1, 2022. During a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Alberto Del Rio shed light on the character of Brock Lesnar behind the scenes.

Alberto del Rio said: "He has always been very kind to us. All the superstars have been nice to me, but not all have been nice to Ricardo Rodriguez. We have talked about it several times in the past. Brock Lesnar was so cute to both of them.

This detail speaks volumes about Brock's character and what kind of person he is. He could have just worked with me and ignored Ricardo, like so many other performers have done. He recognized Ricardo's talent, gave him an opportunity and I will always be grateful to him for that."

A few weeks ago, Ricardo Rodriguez had expressed himself precisely on Lesnar: "He has always loved working with Alberto because of his past in MMA. He was very kind to me too, as he appreciated my commitment and my work ethic.

I never spared myself when I was in WWE."

"The Undertaker got a lot of people fired," said...

One of the most important and best known characters of the entire world pro-wrestling scene, responds to the name of The Undertaker, sacred monster of the discipline who for exactly 30 years worked in the rings of the McMahon company, until his complete retirement arrived in the '2020 edition of the Survivor Series, the same ppv in which it had debuted 3 decades earlier.

After leaving the wrestling world of wrestling, several great protagonists of the WWE and beyond, have sang the praises of the character staged for years by Mark Calaway, among athletes, colleagues, friends and fans who have always loved and idolized him, but with many former members of the WWE crew who lately have also accused the Deadman, who has always been respectful of everyone, but who in the past has had several differences with many in the federation locker room, as he was a very strong character even in the backstage.

In his latest interview with PTM's Vinny Vegas, the well-known wrestler of the old ECW, Sabu, also known for his past in the WWE rings of McMahon, wanted to shoot zero on The Undertaker and the many historical WWE athletes, considered too soft by the legendary extreme athlete.

Referring precisely to the Deadman, Sabu said: "I think it's okay to be a little rough and a little stiff and that should require some respect. I never loved wrestlers who were too light. The Undertaker, he was way too soft, you didn't even feel it.

If you were too stiff with him, he played the victim and got you fired. But if you are stiff with me, I do not get fired, I tell you to take it slower or I will answer you in the rhymes. The top guys in WWE, if you're too stiff, they'll do anything to get you fired."

According to the legendary ECW athlete, therefore, in WWE the unwritten rule would apply that you must never be stiff, under penalty of dismissal by express request of the top athletes of the federation.
