Brock Lesnar received backstage heat when he bought his own plane for traveling with WWE

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar left WWE after Wrestlemania XX so that he could try out for the MinessotaVikings NFL team. Fans in attendance completely turned on Brock in his match against Goldberg, since they knew he would be leaving the company. Even ”Stone Cold” Steve Austin was unable to redeem the match.

During a recent episode of Something To Wrestle With, Bruce Prichard talked about reports that said the WWE locker room was jealous of Brock Lesnar after he bought a $400,000 plane for traveling to shows. Some of them in the back didn’t appreciate Lesnar wanting to travel his own way. Prichard then discussed why Brock Lesnar wanted to leave WWE.

“I think that he needed a break, but at the same time, he was young and we were hoping to go with him at the time and do something with him, so you wanna capitalize on that and make hay while the sun shines.”

“So with him it was ‘what are you gonna do?’ and then when he decided he wanted to go on and play football. It’s ‘Okay’ and you just move on. You can’t do a whole lot if people don’t like ya and they’re jealous of you and you’re happy — who cares?”

“Brock was participating and Brock was doing what he was asked to do and he is an individual. He is a very unique individual. So he didn’t like to hang out with guys, didn’t like to travel the same way — okay travel some other way. It doesn’t affect — that’s what gets me — it doesn’t affect anybody else on the roster.”

Prichard said Brock’s life was unaffected in the end and he did what he desired. Despite those who were jealous of Brock, he had his own path to travel and WWE was fine with that.

    Brock seems like a snowflake who can’t handle humans. He needs to kill and eat innocent animals because that helps fill he ego. Also it’s because doing that to humans is illegal.

    “it doesn’t affect anybody else on the roster”

    Erm, it affects everyone. You have someone who allegedly payed his dues, but doesn’t teach any of the boys anything. Doesn’t give em any tips or whatnot. There is a reason most vets become locker room leaders. They have experience and can help everyone. Brock helps no one and only takes.

    It was his money and he could spend it however he wanted. Now a number of top guys have a bus and say that it will add years to your career. Just forward thinking if you ask me.

    You can hate on Lesnar for many things, but if he had the money and wanted his own plane to fly to events, then anyone jealous of that needs to get over it. If you have the option to fly instead of carpool, then you do it. Plus even with flying overseas or whatever, some people prefer to be alone. It does not mean they think themselves above people or whatever, they just prefer their own company a lot of the time.

    I hope Brock loses the Universal title
