This was what Lesnar told ESPN's "SportsCenter" on Aug. 18. Lesnar was on the show to promote WWE SummerSlam this weekend. FOX Sports' Damon Martin reported on the development.
On July 31, White tweeted to a fan known as "#SethRollinsGuy" that wrestling is fake. A WWE Network cable subscription costs $9.99 a month. White said this is how much something as fake as wrestling is worth:
Lesnar fired back at White on SportsCenter, per Martin:
"Of course, Dana. It's fake. Everybody knows that, but you're promoting the same thing we're promoting. Dana White is promoting fights -- we're promoting fights. It just so happens that we get a little more longevity out of our fight and out of our fighters because of the circumstances.
"It is a staged arena. Everybody knows that. Dana, probably in his defense, is promoting fighting -- but it's the same thing. He's trying to sell pay-per-views, he's trying to sell money fights. It's the same racket."
Lesnar then says McMahon is better at doing this than White:
"The business model's the same, it's identical. I think Vince McMahon's better at it than Dana and that might rub Dana the wrong way.
"Vince is the pioneer of it. He's been doing this his whole life and he's damn good at it."
Lesnar will take on the Undertaker in WWE SummerSlam 2015. Undertaker is seeking revenge in this match. Lesnar beat him in WrestleMania 30 last year. That win snapped the Undertaker's undefeated Wrestlemania winning streak, per WWE.com.
Undertaker beat Lesnar in WWE Battleground back in April. The win enabled Undertaker to snatch Lesnar's World Heavyweight Championship. New Orleans served as the venue, per WWE.com.
Undertaker promised he will dominate his ensuing match with Lesnar. He also threatened Lesnar's advocate, Paul Heyman. He did these on WWE Monday Night Raw the following night.
Lesnar then stepped in. A huge brawl took place. Only police intevention prevented the scene from becoming chaotic, per WWE.com.
WWE SummerSlam 2015 will be on Aug. 23 at Barclays Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y., per WWE.com.
