Back in 2015, Dana White had tweeted that all of the WWE guys he’s met are great people, but that wrestling is fake. The same year, while speaking to ESPN Sportscenter, Brock Lesnar had shared his thoughts on Dana’s remarks about WWE. He stated that while everyone is aware that WWE is a fake, it is similar to UFC in terms that Dana is marketing the same thing that we are.
“Of course, Dana, it’s fake. Everybody knows that but it’s still the same – you’re promoting the same thing we’re promoting,” Brock Lesnar had said in the year 2015.”
Brock went on to say that because of the conditions, WWE wrestlers get a little more longevity out of their fights, and that Dana, like WWE, promotes live events and attempts to sell money fights, implying that he operates the same racket as WWE.
“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,” the wrestler continued. “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.”
Brock concluded by asserting that the economic models of the UFC and WWE are the identical, and that Vince McMahon is far better than Dana. He stated that Vince is the pioneer of such a business and has been doing it his entire life.
“The business model is 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 dam*ed good at it.”
Brock Lesnar is slated to fight Roman Reigns at SummerSlam for the Undisputed WWE Championship on July 30th at Nissan Stadium, Nashville, Tennessee.
