On this week’s Wrestling with Freddie podcast from iHeart Media’s My Cultra Network, Freddie Prinze Jr. was joined by actor Macaulay Culkin as they delved into the world of pro wrestling. Culkin went on to state that he’s tired of seeing the same WWE matches over and over again, including Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar.
At the Day 1 event, Brock Lesnar was inserted into a fatal four-way match after his original opponent for the night, Roman Reigns, tested positive for the virus and got pulled from the show. Brock Lesnar was also spotted drinking with TNT star.
Macaulay Culkin opens up on the feud:
“Especially the product now, f*** dude,” Culkin answered Freddie Prinze Jr.’s question about today’s product lacking. “If I have to see one more f******, don’t get me wrong I’m looking forward to seeing what will be different this time, but if I have to see Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns one more frickin’ time, you know? That’s the thing. They’ll do the same pay-per-view back to back. It’s always like New Day/Usos like every frickin’ card. Like, I understand that their roster isn’t as deep as it was a year ago. They’ve cut I think 86 wrestlers from their roster this past calendar year. So yeah, you don’t have this rich variety that you might have had before, but even then, man, it’s like how many times can we watch the same match over again?”
‘The Beast Incarnate’ ended up pinning Big E to win his sixth WWE title. Tonight at Friday Night SmackDown, Lesnar would continue his feud with ‘The Tribal Chief’, who is set to return to the show after recovering from the virus. Lesnar is now set for a dream match against Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble later this month, with Paul Heyman and MVP in their corners respectively.
