WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray would love to see Brock Lesnar’s latest feud take a different approach to The Beast Incarnate.
Brock Lesnar walked into WrestleMania 38 as the WWE Champion, but after Roman Reigns was crowned Undisputed WWE Universal Champion with his victory over The Beast Incarnate, Lesnar disappeared from WWE television.
That is, he disappeared until the aftermath of Reigns’ title match against Riddle on June 17th. The Original Bro has been on a mission to avenge his friend in recent weeks, ever since The Bloodline took out his partner Randy Orton.
Once again, Roman Reigns was able to hold onto his title, but he was met with an unexpected surprise when his long-time foe made his shock return and laid out the Tribal Chief with an F5 before also delivering the move to The Usos for good measure.
After the show went off the air it was announced that Lesnar will challenge Reigns one more time at SummerSlam in a Last Man Standing Match.
During an appearance on Eric Bischoff’s 83 Weeks podcast (available early via AdFreeShows), WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray gave his opinion on the renewal of the Reigns vs. Lesnar feud, and said that he’d like to see The Beast humanized this time around to add a different dimension to their story.
“I would love to see them go either even farther in the opposite direction with Brock Lesnar. I would like to see Brock Lesnar humanized for the first time ever, because I think it would be a considerably different, different aspect of his personality. And we could get one thing on Brock that I don’t think anybody has been ever able to get, and that is sympathy. How do you feel sympathetic for Brock Lesnar?
“Well, let’s take his very real life situation that he dealt with, his diverticulitis. I would somehow go after that. Now I know diverticulitis is more of a something that goes on within your system, you know, like a disease or whatever. But you had to have healed from that. Well, I’d like to see Roman somehow with an object or some go after the area that Brock suffered his diverticulitis from, because if there is a weakness to Brock, maybe that was it.
“I’d love to see Brock hospitalized. I’d love to see his children by his side. I’d love to see Sable by his side. I’d like to see Brock Lesnar taken to places where Brock Lesnar has never been taken to thus you get taken someplace else. With Brock Lesnar. You start to feel bad for a beast. And I’ve never felt bad for Brock Lesnar I just want to see Brock Lesnar. Get up and throw somebody Yeah. If it was ever the right time to humanize Brock just a little bit, it’s now. That’s just, that’s just my opinion.”
