Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones are currently in the middle of a war of words so to speak. After “Bones” Jones won his fight at UFC 124 against Daniel Cromier he spouted off to Lesnar. Not to be outdone, Brock said something like, “be careful what you wish for” as his reply.
Now even more people are weighing in on this ongoing story as Brock faces one of his toughest challenges to date in the squared circle with the fatal four-way match against Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns, and Samoa Joe at SummerSlam. It is a very hot topic of conversation to say the least.
WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross recently threw his two cents in about the subject on a recent entry in his blog. But to be honest, Good ‘ole JR has way more than just two cents to throw in about any topic because his opinion should be greatly treasured.
“I don’t see any scenario at this time that would drive any wedges between Lesnar and WWE regarding the WWE star being able to go collect a massive, seven figure plus payday while keeping his name in the public eye” Jim Ross said.
Ross went on to reveal he has heard “word on the streets” Jon Jones might be interested in a WWE payday in the future as well which is a very exciting proposition.
“Ironically, word on the street is that Jones is also interested in a WWE payday some day in the future which adds some irony to the Bones-Brock UFC scenario.’
“Athletes are arguably smarter today than ever before and they realize that these massive paydays are not going to last forever plus the fact that no one ever has “enough money” contrary to public sentiment from those who actually don’t have enough money.”
“Bones hand speed and reach will be problematic for Lesnar when they do tangle as Brock’s striking defense will have to be spot on if the bigger grappler has any chance of winning on his way to a fully stocked pay window.”
Whatever happens in this situation will certainly keep fans interested, that’s for sure.
