“What they totally remaining out was I was requested the problem about will we see DC vs. Brock Lesnar, and I reported no for the reason that so considerably of it in the WWE is visual, it is functionality, it’s how does Roman Reigns seem, not how can he battle, it has absolutely nothing to do with it… Roman Reigns seems amazing, and he cuts a good promo and he’s an wonderful performer, and the visual of him and Brock Lesnar, that’s what would make it do the job. DC just has the skill to essentially fight, but he does not glance like it, and that’s what I believe would protect against a future DC-Brock Lesnar match.”
