Has anyone noticed Brock saying some strange and goofy sounding things in his promos lately?

First, Brock was talking about his match with Kurt Angle:
"I fell on my noggin'."

Then, about his match with John Cena.
"He gave me a hell of a match. A hell of a match he did."

Recently on Smackdown he said,
"Benoit and I will handle Big Show and A-Train fine and dandy."



Last night I laugh my ass off when he said "Fine and Dandy".

It could be the beginning of something good. Maybe that's just the way he talks or maybe they're trying to play up a sympathetic "Aw shucks" type character, but if he pushes the envelope a little more it could turn into some real comedy, a la Scott Steiner or Randy Savage's unintentionally brilliant promos in WCW.

That's true , but there's just one problem. Brock Lesnar is suppose to be an unstoppable monster and should not be doing comedy, look what happen to the Big Show.

Brock Lesnar should NOT be saying "fine and dandy" in any of his promos. It's just not right.

Also, while I'm at it, Chris Benoit needs to stop using the phrase "toothless agression". Chris Benoit just isn't the type of person who should say shit like that.

Maybe they're going for Lennie from "of Mice and Men"? It could make for some good stuff....

"Brock! Come quick, Big Show's after your rabbits!"

Brock: "I will SMASH them George..."

Ahhh Steinbeck...who says wrestling couldn't be cultured.

Being a serious wrestler doesn't necessarily mean he shouldn't do comedy. (What's more, being an unstoppable monster isn't good business. It just never pays off in the long run.)

I agree with whomever about Benoit and "Toothless Aggression" though. It's entirely too close to the time in WCW where they had him describe himself as "Silent but violent". (During a promo with Sid Vicious, as I recall.)

Brock will be an intimidating presense as long as he brings the pain. Big Show turned into a strictly comedy act because he couldn't do that. Adding a couple "Aw shucks" type comments - if it's scripted and not just the way he talks - only adds a layer of characterization. So long as he keeps bringing it, there is no chance of him becoming a joke a la Big Show.

You could be right but I still think it's too risky for this stage in his career.

The guy is from rural North Dakota. He has a very country way of speaking. I don't think it's intentional, I just think that he's just using phrasology common to how and where he was raised.

Don't forget about "big slobbery ass."

Even though Brock's better as a hell, for some reason I'm enjoying his crazy promos.

    That right there is unforgiveable and should not make national TV.

    If Pat Peterson can script the Rocks promos then Brock should get the same treatment.

Since they won't put Heyman with Lesnar again, why not bring back Mr. Bob Backlund and have him be Lesnar's manager? Both are midwest amateur wrestlers, both have shown they can snap in the ring, and Backlund can fill the role Arnold Skaaland had while he was champion. Besides, they have the Backlund as Angle's advisor when Angle first arrived, so that can provide additional fuel to an Angle/Lesnar rematch feud, and Backlund versus Angle in promos on the mic leading up to the match could enter classic territory.

Lately, I've been finding Brock's hilariously bad promos to be a highlight of Smackdown. (He's like a badass Ned Flanders, isn't he? I'm just waiting for him to say "jeepers".)

Of course, I'm the guy who would have brought him in as the Incredible Hulk to Crash Holly's Bruce Banner, so I'm probably not the demographic they should be looking towards.

Character development in wrestling is vastly overrated.

"What's more, being an unstoppable monster isn't good business"

I think historically you'll find more unstoppable monsters as successful headliners than you will guys doing comedy.

"It didn't hurt Angle."

It hurt his drawing power.

"I think historically you'll find more unstoppable monsters as successful headliners than you will guys doing comedy."

And you'll find even more successful headliners who are guys the audience wants to see get their ass kicked. And that doesn't matter either!

I didn't say a comic was better than a monster. I said (and you quoted) "being an unstoppable monster isn't good business". Once that unstoppable monster is stopped, he generally doesn't draw that many more dimes.

Now you can say being goofy hurt Kurt's drawing power and that's fine. I think he did as well as he could have. He did a lot better than most. You can say he was undercut but it's just a difference of opinion.

the whole big smiling thing brings to mind Hyatte's column from a few weeks back. If I may post a snippet of it from 411Mania:

No, no, NOOOOO Nash has, and always will… RULE… because he has EXPOSED THE GOOFINESS OF THE BUSINESS MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE

Case in point… in 1994 Big Daddy Cool Diesel just won the WWF title from Bob Backlund. He showed up on WWF TV for an in-ring interview with Vince McMahon. Vince (kayfabbing his ass off, as he was wont to do back then) asked Nash how he felt being the new world champion. Diesel said this:

Well, I woke up this morning and there was a smile on my face that wasn’t there before.

For some reason, it stuck with me… to this day I remember it. I don’t know why.

CUT TO

One year later: Big Daddy Cool Diesel had just dropped the WWF title to Bret Hart at Survivor Series. The next night on Raw, Nash storms into the building and (after a commercial break) goes over to the announce table and grabs a microphone. He cuts a promo about how the kinder/gentler face Diesel was gone and the bad ass killer from “Royal Rumble in Providence” was baaaack.

He also looked at McMahon and said: “I was never comfortable as champion. I knew I was in for trouble when YOU, Vince, took me into your office and told me to start SMILING more! You wanted to see your new champion with a big SMILE, all the time!”

And I damn near fell out of my chair. Since I was no where near the net back then, it was the closest I came to seeing the inner working of the WWF. They actually want their champions to smile… to pose with the kids… to sell themselves as a HERO.

Well, okay… it’s not too friggin’ mind blowing… but it’s way cool to hear him bitch about it.

So why does Nash RULE? WHY?

Because now that Brock Lesnar has the gold… he’s been sporting the LARGEST, BIGGEST, SHIT EATINGEST GRIN I’VE EVER SEEN!!! (and he looks like a moron while doing it, but that’s besides the point) And every time I see him smiling, I think of Nash, and I smile too.


It makes sense to me. But I really would like to see Brock revert to the old silent, scary beast he was with Heyman.

I assumed that by unstoppable monster, they didn't mean no-selling giant, they meant ass-kicking dude who kicks ass and doesn't smile all the time like a goof.
