Steve Austin On Whether Or Not Brock Lesnar Would Be WWE Champion Again


WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin recently spoke with Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald to promote his Broken Skull Challenge on CMT. He spoke about the WWE World Heavyweight Title situation:

“Triple H has had it enough. Cena has had it enough. You need a fresh face, so you might as well take advantage of a bad situation, which is Daniel Bryan’s neck and make a new superstar. With Cesaro having [Paul] Heyman in his corner, he would be a great choice because of Heyman’s advice. His credibility, Cesaro’s in-ring ability speaks for itself. He is going to be a badass. Bray Wyatt I like as a heel even though the crowd is trying to switch him to babyface. Really, I don’t know. Maybe Roman Reigns is my favorite to take that belt. I think the crowd is ready to get behind him. He’s missing a little bit of his game, but he is going to be a mega star very quickly. So either way you go with that, I think it’s going to be fine. It’s put up or shut up, and you have to take the football and run with it. I think whichever guy gets that belt, he will do that….”

“I’m just wondering if Brock Lesnar is going to come in there and smoke whoever has the belt and then have a monster run until WrestleMania next year. Then drop the belt to somebody who is really good at carrying it. So will this guy be a sacrificial lamb or will they give them a run with the belt? I just want Daniel Bryan to get well because he was coming into some good money working on top and worked his ass to get there. He has been around a long time at the lower level. Now he is at the top of WWE. I just want his neck to get well, so he can continue making money and be the top guy because he earned it.”

Steve Austin is a bright guy and one of the best minds in pro wrestling. There has been a ton of speculation on whether or not Brock Lesnar will actually be in the World Title situation and if he will win the title in the first place. I think it would be a nice change to see someone who is not in the world title scene every year, I wouldn’t say he would be champion that long, but he would be something different to the table.
