Jeff Jarrett: It Will Take Time For People To Understand How Unique Brock Lesnar Is

Jeff Jarrett speaks highly of Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar signed with WWE in 2000 and quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with following his debut in 2002. He won the WWE Championship a SummerSlam that year. He later won the world title for a second time at WrestleMania XIX, but he left WWE following WrestleMania XX in 2004. Following a brief venture into the NFL, Lesnar competed in Japan and also kicked off a successful MMA career; he won the UFC Heavyweight Championship. He returned to WWE in 2012 and has remained one of the company's top stars ever since, albeit on a part-time basis. He is now a 10-time world champion, and he also ended The Undertaker's undefeated streak at WrestleMania.

Speaking on My World with Jeff Jarrett, Lesnar came up in the conversation and the WWE Hall of Famer shared his belief that it will take time for people to full appreciate how unique the former WWE Champion is. He highlighted the way Lesnar's matches stand out and noted that there's plenty of psychology behind them.

“I think in today’s social media digital world, and all the water under the bridge under Brock, good or bad, I think it’s gonna take a little time for people to really digest how unique of an athlete, performer, MMA fighter, professional wrestler, [and] human being Brock is. He had started, of course amateur wrestling, but started in professional wrestling and then got out of it and had his MMA run. Then he’s come back, and his matches are not anything like you see. But there’s a boatload of psychology behind it. Shout-out to Paul Heyman. There’s just a really good feel about it," Jarrett said.

Jarrett continued by explaining that he always thought that former WWE CEO Vince McMahon was "loaning" Lesnar out during his MMA run, as he wanted the powerhouse to develop his character elsewhere before he came back to the company.

"I always looked at Brock, when he was in MMA, Vince is loaning him out, but what is Vince really doing? He’s just doing some character development over at this other brand because I’m gonna get him back [laughs]. I really always looked at their relationship, that Vince just said, ‘Yeah, Brock, go make your money and develop your character a little bit more, but not on my dime,'" he said.

On the February 6 episode of WWE Raw, Lesnar challenged Bobby Lashley to a match at WWE Elimination Chamber. More information is available here.
