Cesaro had come on to the scene. And Cesaro is a superstar alright. But now Brock Lesnar who had left awhile ago is slated to make a comeback to the Summer Slam. This of course may mean that Cesaro doesn’t stand a chance.
Brock Lesnar has gained victory over the Undertaker who as everybody knows had a knack of winning instead of losing. Paul Heyman had always been a supporting mainstay of Brock Lesnar. But now he will be acting as a prop for Cesaro.
The only problem is that Paul Heyman is not very good at managing many wrestling stars at one and the same time. Before Brock’s return a lot of events may come to pass. If Heyman were to leave Cesaro high and dry it would not make for good camaraderie. Cesaro would be devastated.
Lesnar surprised everyone by his prowess and ability to deconstruct myths. He literally wreaked havoc in the ring as long as he was in it. By causing bloody violence of a sort never seen before, Brock Lesnar made people expect the unexpected. And he did it with style and a strong sense of duty. The wrestling behemoth was and is a virtual powerhouse.
If Paul Heyman manages Cesaro it remains to be seen if he rises to the same level as Lesnar. Both of them are known as very tough-minded individuals with a winning streak. Whether Cesaro becomes Lesnar’s partner is a moot point. It might happen and it might not!
Meanwhile, news has it that Brock called up Dana White and pleaded with him to convince Pat Berry to seek retirement. Dana White spoke of how he tried to reason with Brock that Pat needed the money from his fights in order to survive so it would be a bad idea for him to quit.
“Brock Lesnar called me and begged me to make (Pat Barry) retire,” said Dana White in a scrum with the media following Saturday night's UFC Fight Night 40 in Cincinnati.
“He said, ‘I don't consider too many people my friend, and I consider Pat Barry a friend. Dana, you got to get this guy to retire,'” White continued.
“I said, ‘Listen, he's a grown man Brock. What am I gonna do?' It's different with guys like Forrest (Griffin) and Chuck (Liddell), guys that I've had relationships with for a long time. Guys who have made a lot of money. That's the difference. You look at guys like Forrest. Forrest and Chuck are multimillionaires. It's easy to make them quit.”
“It's a lot tougher to make a guy quit that has to make a living. I don't want to hurt Pat Barry or throw a monkey wrench in his life or anything, but at the end of the day, the state athletic commission is gonna need to step in and help a guy like Pat Barry retire… or people that care about him.”
It is still a mystery whether Brock really said all this to Dana.
