Brock is dominating the World Title way too much

He won the title at WrestleMania 33 in 2017. He had the longest run with a top title since Hogan in the 80s. He loses the title to Roman for a couple months. Then comes back and wins it back a couple months later. (Because Roman was sick).

Then he loses the belt to Rollins at Mania 35. He wins it back a couple months later only to lose to Seth again at SummerSlam.

Then Smackdown becomes the flagship show and he wins the title there on the first show in seconds from Kofi.

Isn't it time to build up new wrestlers. Brock isn't really a draw anymore anyways. It is time to build for the future. Otherwise trouble is on the horizon for WWE.

Brock is still young lol, he's still the future, but yeah it's just a cycle. They did this with John Cena and somewhat did it with Roman Reigns.

That's asinine. I hope you are being sarcastic. He was young back in 2005 during his "here comes the pain" phase and his feuds with Angle and Eddie Guerrero. He is not the future he is towards the end of his career. I think Lesnar has 5 years max in the wrestling business before he retires. This is like his final stretch.

Re: Brock is dominating the World Title way too much

Vince is obsessed with being "legit", and so is Fox, so you better be prepared for there to be no non Brock, non Velasquez champion for the next, probably 3 years. Fuck building for the future, fuck Brock not being a draw or Cain for that matter, they're legit, so this is what we're dealing with.

SmackDown doesn't even have a single person that COULD beat them on the entire roster except Roman Reigns, and they don't want him as the champion. They have literally no main eventers apart from Brock, Cain, and Roman when they decide to have him main event, which is increasingly becoming never. Really, it's just Brock and Cain. That's SmackDown. Either eat the taste of shit and like it or go watch AEW. They don't give one single fuck about you and the way you feel.

He's not even close to the end of his career. Brock works about 5 matches a year, he takes maybe one bump per match, and he rakes in millions of dollars more than everybody else for it. He's not giving this up. He's gonna do this until he's in his 70's.

If you know anything about Brock Lesnars personality over the years is that he's not the type who works for the heck of it. Brock is not exactly passionate about wrestling. He wants to make his money and get out while he is young and healthy. I don't see him as the type to wrestle in his 70's. I can see him taking his money in 5 years and retiring from everything and just spend his life on his farm with his wife. I'll give him more then 5 years but the guy probably doesn't want to wrestle in his 50's.

He already DOES spend his life on his farm with his wife. He does NOTHING. There's never been a wrestler in history who puts less effort into their job than Brock.

There's no way I believe that a guy as greedy as him is gonna turn down 4 matches a year, pretty much no bumps at all, and unlimited money and leisure time, along with the knowledge that Vince will never, EVER learn and STOP paying him. This company in 10 years is gonna be doing a 0.8 in the ratings and Vince is still gonna think Brock is the answer because he's an idiot. He doesn't get it. Brock won't turn it down. He'll continue to torment fans for as long as he's physically able, which, with the little amount he does, will be at least a couple decades, because he has almost no wear and tear compared to anybody else with how little effort he's actually had to put in.

I have no idea about money/investments in the US(in US currency that is) and also in general, Brock's net worth and all that shit(I'm assuming it must be $25 million, which must be a LOT?).

My question to you is, even if his net worth in 2019 is, let's just say $20-25M, and he has a farm, and investments in place, why bother even wrestling that much any more? At what point does a human being say "enough" ? Or, "I have more than enough, I'm financially secure" ? Especially considering his frugal, simple lifestyle. My own lifestyle resembles that of a monk's. Minimalist as hell. I'd say "enough" just at $2.5 Million, which I can't even imagine right now.

So what's wrong with frugal Brock? Is he hoping to achieve a net worth of $50M or something?

The only answer I can give you is.....every person is different. I don't see him as saying enough is enough. It's well documented that Brock loves making money. He passed "I have more than enough, I'm financially secure" during his first WWE run, that's not even adding the UFC run or 2012 WWE to present.

Re: Brock is dominating the World Title way too much

They don't want to build for the future. If they wanted - they would've given the Undertaker rub to someone not named Brock, someone of their own. And this Brock shit would've been done years ago. Vince is happy with this guy holding the belt hostage. He doesn't want his guys to become starts, he only wants stars from outside of the ring beating his own guys, that's the thing nowadays, and it's been going on for at least 7 years.

Discussions like these are simply pointless. Nothing is gonna change.
