After watching professional wrestling for 10 years, there is one thing that became apparent right away — don’t ever make fun of the WWE golden boys, or else. WWE World Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar did not follow the unwritten rule of the WWE, and the golden boy in question is not too keen on Lesnar’s jab last week on Monday Night Raw.
Hulk Hogan celebrated his birthday bash on Monday Night Raw, and the whole reunion brought back former legends and the NWO. Lesnar and Paul Heyman crashed the party, and Lesnar came up with the line of the year, right on the spot.
Everybody in the WWE Universe isn’t privy to Lesnar’s mic skills, which are near rookie-level, but the line got a big reaction out of the WWE crowd that night. However, an earlier article on The Inquisitr talked about how his punchline was unscripted. TMZ caught up with Hogan and it appears he is not too happy about it.
“All I gotta say is, Brock… I haven’t done anything to get in your way, but you keep throwing, my name around, and I’m going to get in your way. You can’t say that stuff like you said Brock, in front of my wife and kids. It’s not cool, brother.
“I know this is all entertainment, you know we’re supposed to have fun with it, but when he starts throwing my name around, with my wife and kids, it’s crossing the line.”
Hogan is picking a “fight” with the wrong man. Even if WWE decided to start a war with the two men, Hogan would get severely hurt. He’s too old to take a bump from anybody, especially Lesnar. The line added to the segment, which combined with Heyman’s line, turned the main event of Raw into complete gold. Ric Flair isn’t complaining about the “come at me” move by Lesnar. The Beast shouldered rowdy Roddy Piper. He isn’t mad about it.
Lesnar added to the illusion that he could crush any of them. In fact he could, but WWE didn’t want him doing anything ridiculous to WWE legends. Hogan is just jealous that the hottest ticket took his attention away in the wrestling business. If anything, Hogan should thank Lesnar for making the segment better.
Nothing will happen between Hogan and Lesnar, because nothing should occur. It was a simple line that added to the entertainment. Hogan’s been in the business long enough to realize what is good and bad for a WWE event, or maybe not.
