Kevin Nash has pointed out a minor detail during Brock Lesnar’s recent appearance on Monday Night Raw.
Brock Lesnar appeared on Monday Night Raw two weeks ago, addressing his Last Man Standing match against Roman Reigns at SummerSlam. Lesnar was then provoked by Theory, who sent Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable and Otis to attack the former Universal Champion, but he instead made short work of the two and left Raw unscathed.
WWE began positioning Brock Lesnar as a babyface when he returned to challenge Roman Reigns at SummerSlam last summer. The megastar soon adopted a cowboy persona, entering every arena with a cowboy hat and giving more of a heroic, babyface vibe on-screen.
Speaking on his podcast Kliq This, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash discussed Brock Lesnar’s new babyface character and pointed out a minor detail during his recent appearance on Raw.
“But the thing is that, and it was kind of great because they started off and they showed Roman Reigns from Friday’s SmackDown. Then they cut right into [Brock] Lesnar’s music and out came Lesnar, and Lesnar, I didn’t hear that Lesnar was coming back so it was a pleasant surprise. And it’s funny because you know, Brock always had [Paul] Heyman talk for him and Brock came out and Brock is not bad at interviews. He’s not great, but I don’t really think that f*cking Brock gives two f*cks.
It was funny, he came down with a black hat on and he says, ‘Since I’m in Texas, I’m going to be a gentleman and take my hat off.’ He took his hat off. I don’t know if he did this on purpose, but if he did it then it’s smart, because he doesn’t want to be a babyface, but they pushed him that way. And he took the hat and he laid it brim down instead of upward as you’re supposed to put a hat. So if he f*cking knew that would [make people notice], because it caught my eye.”
The last time Brock Lesnar was portrayed as a babyface was in 2015 when he faced off against Seth Rollins. For years, he has worked as a dominant heel champion with mouthpiece Paul Heyman speaking on his behalf. However, Lesnar appears more comfortable on the mic and has embraced this more heroic side to his character.
