Ric Flair: Brock Lesnar deserves his massive paycheck

Last updated

2x WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently discussed Brock Lesnar and the massive amount of money that the WWE Champion earns in the company.

Lesnar is reportedly on millions per year with WWE, despite the fact that he does not work a huge amount of shows or wrestle on the likes of RAW and SmackDown that frequently.

Speaking on his Wooooo Nation UNCENSORED podcast, Flair defended the Beast Incarnate, saying that he deserves the massive paydays as he is a legitimate figure.

“They like to believe in somebody. I mean, as a babyface, you can look at Brock Lesnar, not only because he’s a phenomenal athlete. They know when he’s [Brock Lesnar] gonna kick someone’s ass, and that’s what the fans like” Flair began.

“You look at Brock, and he’s real. Roman Reigns, and he’s real. You look at Randy Orton, and he’s real. These guys are big, muscular; they’re larger than life” Flair added.

“So when people are b*tching about him getting paid a lot, don’t make it don’t mistake. The fact that he earns it and he deserves it” the former NWA Champion concluded.
