WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray says he thinks WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has a soft spot for one of the men he defeated in the Elimination Chamber, Austin Theory.
At Elimination Chamber, Brock Lesnar captured his seventh WWE Championship when he defeated AJ Styles, Riddle, Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins, Bobby Lashley, and Austin Theory. Before that match took place, Lesnar pulled no punches against his opponents on Raw, specifically welcoming Theory to Suplex City.
Now Bully Ray has discussed Lesnar’s attack on Theory on Busted Open Radio and says he thinks it was evidence that The Beast Incarnate likes the selfie-loving star:
“He had a pretty moment last week [on Raw] when Brock [Lesnar] was German-ing him, throwing him all over the ring. I’ll tell you this: Brock likes Theory. Yeah, you know how I know? By the way he was throwing him. Brock can throw anybody he wants, at any given time, and there’s not a f*cking thing you can do about it. And that’s a shoot, brother.”
“There’s only one person Brock cannot throw at will in the WWE, and that’s Shelton Benjamin. If you go back and watch the Germans that Brock was giving Theory, [it was] nice and easy. He could’ve been dumping him if he wanted. ‘Pay your dues, kid,’ boom, right on your head. But, no, nice and easy. That’s how I know [he likes Theory].”
Theory was the last man standing in the Elimination Chamber match as Lesnar tore through his competition in Saudi Arabia. Brock Lesnar won the WWE Title after he launched Austin Theory off the top of a pod with a frightening F5.
