Just to put things in perspective, here's a recap of a Brock Lesnar appearance on ESPN Sports Center from June. Now note, this wasn't a wrestling promo, this was Brock Lesnar the person choosing to speak out about the company and profession that made him famous. You can draw your own conclusions as to how appreciatively he was to the business.
"On ESPN SportsCenter today, Brock Lesnar said he wished he never went to WWE. Lesnar said he went to WWE after college because he thought it would be a quick path to fame and riches, but that he now wishes he had gone straight to the NFL. Lesnar also again denied doing steroids."
The above comment speaks for itself. When people mention how the NFL tryout publicity could have been good for WWE in theory I fully agree. Yet in execution, Brock chose to present pro wrestling as something of a joke that he regretted being a part of. This was not 'good publicity' and it's obvious Brock could care less about the best interests of the profession that made him famous.
In media appearance after appearance Brock Lesnar chose to label the pro wrestling industry as 'embarrassing' and claimed he wished he never participated in a 'fake sport'. I find it strange that someone who publicly claims only a few months ago that he wished he 'never did pro wrestling' all of a sudden wants back in, as if his actions do not come with consequences.
It would be interesting to see how Brock explains just 'why' he chose to bash the profession publicly on media campaigns when the spotlight was created for him solely BECAUSE he was a famous pro wrestler, thanks to the hard work of the people and process he's embarrassed by. It would be especially interesting to see him explain this to those in the locker room he now expects to once again 'help' him travel along the 'quick path to fame and riches'. Good luck with that!
