When thinking about Brock Lesnar, the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind is a big, mean, killing machine. However, a fact that fans should not forget is that this killing machine took years to be built. Of course, Lesnar is genetically gifted, but it takes a certain time to get adapted to the nuances of pro wrestling. Unlike wrestling, pro wrestling involves many other aspects and skills that take years to develop. However, one pro wrestling legend believes that Lesnar has now reached a point where he could be called a “great worker.”

Why is Brock Lesnar a great worker?

Talking at the Busted Open Radio, WWE legend Ric Flair spoke about how he has seen a massive change in The Beast Incarnate. Talking about Lesnar’s 2023 Summer Slam match with Rhodes, Nature Boy was all praises for Lesnar’s athleticism in the ring. He said, “I think he’s (Brock Lesnar) special. I was hoping, and I actually thought he (Lesnar) would win it last year.” Later, Flair added what his thoughts were after seeing Lesnar’s performance that night.

He stated that he decided to send a text message to Lesnar following his SummerSlam performance. “I texted Brock, ‘Brother, you’re a special kind of cat. You’ve gone from being a great attraction, a good worker, to a great worker.”

Talking about Lesnar’s in-ring work from his past experiences, the WWE Hall of Famer stated, “I only wrestled him a couple of times and I used to say, ‘Remember, I’m just a little bit older than you buddy.’ [Laughs]. He never hurt me.” He also stated that Lesnar is great on the mic, which adds up to his arsenal as a pro wrestler.
