Stone Cold Steve Austin was a recent guest on the State of Combat podcast where the Rattlesnake reveals that current WWE champion Brock Lesnar is his pick for the best wrestler of the decade. Austin explains that no one in the business has that “I have to watch this match factor” more than the Beast, but does admit he isn’t around as often as people would like.
With Brock, you can say ‘part-time’ or this or whatever, but when Brock goes to the ring, I still get a sense of danger or I sense that I don’t really know what he is going to do. How often does he go to Suplex City? How bad did he really hurt somebody? What’s he going to do to this opponent or what is he going to do to dismantle him?
Austin later mentions Cena as a top candidate as well, but dives further in on Lesnar.
Brock Lesnar creates more questions in my mind than anybody else who has walked into the ring for the last 10 years, no question in my mind. Cena is up there with the top of the top, but moving past that, Brock Lesnar, when he walks into an arena or steps into an Octagon, you always wonder what’s going to happen with that guy. He might not be around as much as many people would like, but as far as impact and pure ‘I have to watch this match’ factor, it’s hard to say a guy other than him.
