Brian Lawler Mislead CNN About Steroids In Wrestling

Published

on

I just watched Brian Christopher – the son of Jerry Lawler – on Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN talking about the death of Chris Benoit and his family as well as steroid use in the WWE and pro wrestling in general. For a non-WWE employee, he certainly was towing the WWE line. I only caught the last few minutes, but I got to hear him downplay steroid use in wrestling today.

He commented that steroid use was far worse ten to twelve years ago but it’s not as much of a problem now because of the steroid problems in Major League Baseball. What a load of garbage. Is Christopher trying to get his job back in the WWE. I would have expected Anderson Cooper to interview someone who actually has a clue what is going on in the WWE locker room and willing to speak about it instead interviewing the son of the WWE’s mouthpiece.

If anyone has a transcript of the interview, I would be interested to read the whole interview. When confronted about saying he lost 11 friends in wrestling over the years being a lot for someone under 45, he backpedaled saying all wrestlers are his friends so it isn’t that many.

Braun Strowman Talks Brock Lesnar Shooting On Him at Royal Rumble

Published

WWE superstar Braun Strowman has had a number of memorable moments during his career at WWE, but none are quite like the 2018 Royal Rumble where Brock Lesnar got upset with Strowman for catching him with a knee.

Lesnar didn’t take to kindly and immediately hit Strowman with a flurry of legitimate punches, including a right hand to his jaw.

“Shit got real” Strowman said, during an interview with BT Sport.

“I mean, at the end of the day it’s two scary guys, two dominant males, not wanting to give an inch to either one, and we took it from each other. Things happen. We’re not playing, we’re not ballet, we’re not badminton. We’re physical. He’s [Lesnar] 300lbs, of just unadulterated animalistic beast and I’m a 385lbs monster. Things happen. At the end of the day, we made one hell of a segment, that’s what really happened.”

“I pat myself on the back. I think I’m the only person in history to take an overhand right from Brock Lesnar and not get knocked out. Anytime you get in the ring with “The Beast” and mix it up, the bigger the challenge the better. If you’re not wrestling the best, then who’d you beat?”

Will Ospreay

New Japan Pro Wrestling superstar and current  IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay has confirmed that he has been contacted by WWE and revealed that it is something that he is considering.

Ospreay also mentioned some of the WWE names he would be interested in facing if he were to find himself in WWE.

“I’ve been approached by them, so I have a lot to think about” he said, according to Tokyo Sports. “I’ve mentioned Seth Rollins‘ name many times… Also, considering my history, it would be a dream to fight Ricochet again. I think that because I think we have become completely different wrestlers than when we fought in the past.”

Ospreay has competed for AEW, Progress Wrestling, Rev Pro, and Ring of Honor throughout his career, among others.
