After watching it for a second time, this is without a shadow of a doubt the best interview WWE has put on television in the last decade, probably longer.
What does it say about the current product and state of the roster when Brock Lesnar's pre-tapes are a million miles ahead of anything else being done by anyone else on the rest of the show?
John Cena may have done his best to murder this interview later on but through the magic of YouTube, we need only watch Lesnar do his thing in this UFC style interview.
"I'm not a superstar, I'm an ass kicker. I am Brock Lesnar, that's it. I left the WWE, everybody thought, here's a guy, there's no way in hell he's gonna make it in the UFC, but I climbed that mountain and became UFC Heavyweight Champion of the world and I proved everybody wrong. Why did I come back to the WWE? This isn't a feel-good moment. This isn't 'Oh I miss coming through the curtain, I miss all the fans.' At the end of the day, I don't care about anybody but Brock Lesnar. For me this is strictly business. We need a guy to legitimize this company and Brock Lesnar is that guy. We're tired of John Cena's bullcrap. John Cena is not the real guy. The only reason John is in the spot that he's in is because I left. If I was still around for the last eight years, John Cena's the guy that'd be carrying my bags into the building. There's nothing about Brock Lesnar that's fake. It was very evident last week when I took John Cena down and busted his mouth open. This is real. What's running through John Cena's mind? I don't give a crap what's running through his mind. What's more important is what's running down his leg. Piss. The guy's scared. Shitting his pants is what he's doing. This isn't a wrestling match on April 29, this is an 'Extreme Rules' match. I got one objective in mind: Utter freakin' chaos. Bring the pain to John Cena. I'm comin' for a fight John Cena. What makes me happy? Beatin' people up, that makes me happy."
