During a recent episode of “Busted Open Radio”, Bubba Ray Dudley and Dave LaGreca discussed the match between Kofi Kingston and Brock Lesnar. They revealed that while a win over Lesnar would legitimatize Kofi as “the guy”, they both believe that Brock Lesnar winning is the right move. Here are the highlights:
Bubba On Why Brock Winning Makes Sense:
Brock makes you want to see Brock lose and whoever he’s in the ring with win. Brock and Seth Rollins – we were invested – and it wasn’t necessarily the moves. We were invested in the story and that’s what we’re gonna get from Brock and Kofi.
LaGreca On Why Brock Should Win:
If you’re able to have Kofi Kingston beat Brock Lesnar then you know what, you’re getting behind Kofi saying, ‘This is our champion. This is the guy. This is the face of the franchise.’ But I’ve gotta give you the honest answer from my gut and I don’t think there’s anyway Kofi Kingston wins. I think we’re gonna see Brock Lesnar with that WWE Championship around his waist.
Bubba On Brock Being The Bigger Draw:
Brock is the guy. And since Brock is a WWE guy and a former UFC guy, Brock’s name is known by people who might not be wrestling fans. There might be people out there who not only don’t get cable, but are Brock fans from the UFC. Brock should bring a lot of eyes to this show on Friday. He’s the biggest name and that’s why they’re going with him. And Brock as your champion is what’s best for business right now with your show going to FOX.
Bubba On If He Thinks Lesnar’s Days As A Part Timer Are Over:
I would hope so. As the champion and without having commitments to the UFC, I hope we see Brock in at least two out of every four weeks a month. And maybe they can even convince Brock – and this would blow people away, Dave – maybe they can even convince him to wrestle once a month on SmackDown and defend the championship. If Brock were to wrestle once a month on SmackDown and defend his championship, I don’t think anybody could ever say a word again.
