WALTER Comments on Brock Lesnar Being the Smartest Wrestler Currently in Wrestling
Mirror Sport held a recent interview with WALTER and one of the topics discussed included his thoughts on Brock Lesnar being the smartest wrestler currently in all of professional wrestling.
“I will go in [the Royal Rumble] second, I don’t care.
I respect the guy because I think Brock Lesnar is the smartest professional wrestler on the planet right now. The number one, work the least amount of time for everybody else, do your own thing… perfect.
I like how everybody else hates him for that because they’re just jealous that they are not as smart as him, right? So yeah, of course. I would love to wrestle Brock Lesnar.
He is one of my favorite wrestlers too, I think he is very skilled, very athletic. And yeah, that’s a good mind for wrestling. And yeah, obviously, I focus on definitely him being one of the matches I really want to do.”
