I’m watching NXT TakeOver: London with my brother, and two buddies. Somehow, the question was raised: would you wrestle Brock Lesnar for thirty-seven thousand dollars? It split the room. My brother and one friend said no, while my other buddy almost immediately joined me in saying yes.
All right, fine – I was the one who asked the question. I’ll be honest, I already forget why it came up, but I do remember why I chose that particular amount. It’s significant enough to make you really think about it. Sure, you have to get tossed around by The Beast Incarnate, but you also wouldn’t have to worry about bills for a few months while you recovered from whatever injuries you sustained during the match.
That brings me to my one buddy’s point (the one who said he wouldn’t). He changed his mind a few moments later, but with one condition: his medical bills would also have to be paid. That’s totally fair.
Keep in mind: you have no prior wrestling training, which is pretty vital in making sure you don’t die from all the vicious F-5’s and crushing German Suplexes.
NOTE: Actual wrestlers are disqualified, as anyone with prior wrestling training should want to get a few minutes in with Brock Lesnar. In the wrestling ring, and not the octagon – just to be clear. I don’t know why anyone would want to have an actual fight with that man.
So? How about it? Would $37,000 be enough for you to get in the ring with Lesnar for seven minutes? That’s new, by the way. I’m adding a time limit. Bonesaw had Spidey for three minutes, and Brock has your ass for seven.
Focus on the payday. You stand to make thousands of dollars. All you have to do is survive.
Ignore Paul Heyman. He’s just trying to get in your head. Close your eyes, and go for the ride. Let the Man Who Conquered the Streak take you on an express trip to Suplex City.
You probably won’t die.

Take a look through them. There’s a lot of keyboard warriors out there. Some sensible folks though, which is good to see.

Number seven is my favorite. Number ten is a close second, of course, but seven was a welcome respite from all the bullshit. These fake tough guys are men that don’t listen to reason. I only provided a small sampling. The number of comments has been growing consistently.
There is only one man equipped to handle what’s happening. One man whose voice carries the gravitas to truly shame all the fake tough guys out there. His name is Paul Heyman, and if you are reading this, and also have a Twitter, please tweet the link to Mr. Heyman.
His response to all of this would surely be magical.
