Shane Carwin blogs about Brock Lesnar's post fight antics:
I cannot say I was surprised by anything that night other then Brock's reaction to beating a very tough Frank Mir. Frank is a legend and a great guy who got out powered not out classed. The sponsor issue, you need to talk to your manager not the fans or Dana.
The flipping off of the fans that just lined your pocket with millions of dollars is just LAME. He may be a Champion but he has a long ways to go before he earns the respect of a Champion. The fans are why we do this Brock, this sport is not about fat paychecks and drama it is about hard work and sacrifice for a shot to do what you did last night. It doesn't matter how much money you make if you can't earn your peers respect and the respect and love of the greatest sporting fans in the world. We have no scripts in this sport, no pre-determined earning amount and no pre-determined outcomes. It doesn't matter if you win or loose it matters how you win or loose.
From leaving the venue all the way to the Airport I have had fans of the sport ask me to take out Brock Lesnar for them. The thing is I have a very tough fight ahead of me that IMO is every bit as tough and talented as Brock. Cain is no joke and he may have had a tough fight against Kongo but I got rocked against Gonzaga. Fact is we are at the top of the HWT division and anyone we fight moving forward is going to be a real test. Cain is nothing short of a super athlete with amazing wrestling and he trains with one of the best camps in the country. I am sure Joe Silva told Cain the same thing he told us, winner gets the title shot.
Shane Carwin has a couple of good points, but I personally don't agree with some of his assessments here. I don't think Brock Lesnar is really after the paycheck and I'm pretty sure he has also worked hard and made huge sacrifices to leave all the luxury behind and to dedicate himself to this sport. Also, by bringing up "scripts" and "pre-determined outcomes" it seems that Shane is still hung up on Lesnar's WWE past.
That being said, I may not agree with a few things, but I'm glad he said it. It just adds a bit more fuel to a potential Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin matchup.
