Triple H Says Brock Lesnar Is A Once In A Lifetime Athlete

WWE may not have promoted Brock Lesnar's UFC fight very well leading in to UFC 200, but they're certainly taking advantage of the hype coming out of it.

WWE's Triple H recently spoke with ESPN about Lesnar. Triple H, who has been in the ring with Brock on numerous occasions, put over Lesnar as not just a crossover athlete, but a crossover star.

“It’s huge. I think any time that you can have a WWE performer that can cross over into something else and have that kind of a night or a performance, whether that’s making a movie or television show or competing in the UFC, that’s huge. To me, it speaks to the amazing athlete that Brock Lesnar is. To be able to come back at such an elite level after a fairly long period of time doing something different and be that dominant is just amazing to me," HHH said.

Triple H also lauded Lesnar's incredible feat as an athlete. After missing over four years from MMA, Lesnar stepped in and controlled a top 10 heavyweight. Triple H sees this as a good move for the UFC, a good move for WWE, and most of all, a good move for Brock Lesnar.

We have said it a million times about Brock but I think it’s worth repeating. He’s a once-in-a-lifetime athlete that comes along and is just — you can see it when you look at him. Guys don’t come along that quick, that big, that fast, that aggressive and with that mentality. He is a once-in-a-lifetime combat athlete. Certainly he helps UFC, banking on Brock Lesnar’s name in the very beginning of him becoming a UFC star and showing his dominance in it. And now it’s the same thing, back and forth. They benefit from it, we benefit from it and it has been great. My hat’s off to Brock, he’s an amazing, amazing athlete.”
