Konnan Doesn’t Think WWE Champion Brock Lesnar Is Funny

Konnan believes that Brock Lesnar’s recent comedy segments on WWE television was not interesting.

Lesnar has shown a softer side to his creepy on-screen character in recent months. Even WWE Champion told a cheeky joke with Bobby Lashley on last week’s episode of RAW, ending with the line, “Bobby who? Correct.”

Talk about him Keepin ‘It 100 podcast, WCW legend Konnan questioned why WWE displayed a giant graphic image of Lesnar’s sword tattoo while he was on the field. He also criticized the UFC heavyweight champion’s recent attempts at humor:

“That’s completely unnecessary, that image, I’m not sure what it means… This is with Brock – and I’ve said this before – he’s not funny to me. He tries to imitate Paul E. [Paul Heyman] and shows his funny side, but it’s not funny at all. When he wrote the script, he wasn’t funny. His UFC nameless character is mint. That’s who should be talking to,” Konnan said.


Lesnar will defend the WWE Championship against Lashley in the first-ever singles match between the two heavyweights at the Royal Rumble on January 29.

Konnan liked the rivalry between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns’ positive COVID-19 result forced the company to cancel his planned match with Brock Lesnar at WWE Day 1 earlier this month. Beast Incarnate still competed at the event, winning the WWE Championship from Big E in a Fatal 5-Way match.

Overall, Konnan admits that he’s a fan of the Lesnar vs. Reigns, especially the interactions the two had with Paul Heyman:

“I like the fact that in the end is Paul E. still in a relationship with Roman? That’s why he [Lesnar] succeeded with Superman Punch, so it’s a great story. ”

As things stand, Heyman now represents Lesnar as an advocate. ECW’s former owner was previously a special advisor to Reigns and recently hinted that he remains loyal to the Universal Champion.
