Paul Heyman on Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker at SummerSlam, John Cena vs. Seth Rollins, More
– WTOP in Washington, DC recently did a Q&A with Paul Heyman to promote WWE SummerSlam. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:
Q: You guys are going to be headlining SummerSlam here: Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker. This is a huge rematch after Brock breaking The Streak. What’s Brock doing to get ready for this?
A: The same thing he did to get ready for Wrestlemania 30. He’s training, he’s hunting, he’s eating right, he’s getting ready to just walk in the ring and destroy The Undertaker.
Q: You know The Undertaker, that was a legendary streak he dropped to Brock. He’s not going to want to lose again here. Is Brock going to really have to up his game?
A: I think The Undertaker is the one who needs to up his game. I don’t understand why anybody doesn’t understand the correlation here. I don’t think The Undertaker wanted to lose at Wrestlemania 30 either, but he had no choice in the matter. He got his ass kicked by Brock Lesnar, he got beaten by Brock Lesnar, he got beat up by Brock Lesnar, he got victimized by Brock Lesnar, and he got conquered by Brock Lesnar. And the very same thing is going to happen next Sunday at SummerSlam.
Q: Now I know you are very partial to Brock in this match, but could you say a little bit about Taker’s run, why he was so big to WWE, even though you say his time is up and it’s Brock’s turn?
A: I didn’t say Undertaker’s time is up. That’s putting words in my mouth. I think if The Undertaker picked a fight with anybody right now, The Undertaker would easily win. I don’t see anybody being able to stand up to The Undertaker. There’s not a man alive right now that can step into the ring with The Undertaker who’s this driven, this focused and now has something to make up for since he lost at Wrestlemania 30. The problem is, The Undertaker isn’t fighting a man, he’s fighting a beast. He’s fighting a conqueror. He’s fighting a once-in-a-lifetime athlete named Brock Lesnar. So it’s no slight to The Undertaker that he’s going to get his ass kicked by Brock Lesnar. Any human being who steps in the ring with Brock Lesnar is going to get his ass kicked. It’s not even a fair fight!
Q: What about that match (the WWE World Heavyweight Title match)? Why should we look forward to that match as well, Cena-Rollins?
A: It’s a double title match. It’s a pretty interesting situation where one man is going to walk out with the undisputed WWE Heavyweight Championship of the World and the U.S. Championship, so it’s certainly not a match with just typical stakes on the line. It’s a match with both titles on the line, which I think is a unique situation with two of the top stars of not only the past year, but the past decade.
