Does Brock Lesnar have a bad backstage attitude?

Tony Schiavone has an amazing podcast called What Happened When where he and co-host Conrad Thompson dive into a subject from Schiavone’s long career in Southern Wrestling.

Pyscho Sid was brought up on an earlier episode of the series and some light was shown on his poor backstage attitude.

Schiavone said of Sid, “I don’t remember anyone that I talked to, any of the wrestlers who liked Sid Vicious […] I may have been wrong, there may have been some, but nobody had a kind thing to say about him.”

Conrad Thompson said Tony and him have a mutual friend who is not Ric Flair and Sid’s name was brought up in conversation. Thompson said, “They compared the way [Sid] behaved in the locker room to the way Brock Lesnar does today. He was very ‘I’m here all about the business, I don’t care about any of this bulls—. I’m not here to be anybody’s friends, tell me what time to be there I’m gonna show up as late as possible, I’m gonna leave as early as possible, my checks better clear or I’m outta here.'”

    I’m not condoning it, but they’re not exactly punishing him for his negative behavior. Compare his situation with a guy like Sin Cara, or Simon Gotch. Brock draws, so they let him do what he wants. I’m not saying it’s okay, Vince is.

    Scott Hall loves Sid and still hangs out with him a lot. Not sure that is a ringing endorsement of one of those guys but hey, somebody still likes Sid.

    Sid was liked by Harlem Heat since he brought them in and let them stay with him at the beginning of their run in WCW. Others thought Sid cared too much about softball, but people did like him. Anyone associated with the 4 Horsemen hated him. As for Brock, it’s already been said that people resent him backstage. If they hated The Rock’s presence, you know they hate Brock making more money to do less work.

    If you think people deserve to be jerks, you’re the jerk.

    He’s well-liked by management, and the fans (evidenced by his merch sales). The guy deserves to be a jerk. He’s a top draw. Nobody else can touch what he does for the company, except Cena, and he’s about to become a part-timer too.

    Oh the IWC is getting very bad when it comes to Pro Wrestling such small minded people. Now for those who I talk to here this doesn’t include you but you all know what I am talking about. Like who didn’t know about Brock Lesnar heck the guy told you in interview many times he does not like people. If you open an ears an listen you might learn something.

    So two guys who have no idea what Brock is actually like decide to compare Sid to him? Really?
    We all know its a business deal with Brock, but who says he is disliked?
