The Beast Brock Lesnar has not been on WWE television since WrestleMania 36, where he dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre. Before his departure, he made rare appearances on WWE television.
Several WWE Superstars were jealous of Lesnar’s part-time schedule for full-time pay. During the latest edition of Talking Smack, Daniel Bryan took a shot at Brock Lesnar by asking Paul Heyman whether Roman Reigns got the same kind of contract that Brock Lesnar did.
Bryan was referring to the fact that Roman Reigns rarely competed in a match on Friday Night Smackdown. Bryan then asked Cesaro if he wanted a contract similar to Brock Lesnar as well.
“I don’t even remember the last time he wrestled on SmackDown. Do you remember? Christmas? Has he wrestled this year besides at the Royal Rumble? Is that the thing? Did you get him on a Brock contract? Congratulations! Congratulations, Paul, you got Roman on the Brock contract! That’s the deal, that’s the jam! Hey, Cesaro, do you want to get on a Brock contract?”
Also on the show, Bryan admitted that he has had many opportunities at titles than Cesaro ever did.
“Now, I have a steadfast belief in myself, as you know. I would be absolutely honored for it to come down to me and Cesaro,” Bryan replied. “This is a man that I’ve known for 15 years, who has more heart than anybody I know in WWE and fight like we’ve never fought before, all for just an opportunity that he’s never once gotten here. If I lose, I lose, and if I win, Roman’s in trouble.
“Do you know how many times I’ve gotten an opportunity to run my mouth in the ring, to build myself up, to tell everybody what I’m going to do? If I win, do you know how many times I’ve gotten that opportunity? Tons. Tons of times! So, if I win, you know what’s going to happen. Do you know who hasn’t gotten an opportunity to tell everybody what’s going to happen? I’m going to leave it to him.”
