5 reasons why Vince McMahon loves Brock Lesnar so much
If you were to ask Vince McMahon about Brock Lesnar's part-time status, he's going to tell you that Lesnar most definitely has "earned the privilege". Depending on what perspective you look at it, it's not fully wrong.
While not many of us are big fans of the whole "part-time" status in WWE and part-time legends, you can't fully blame superstars like Brock Lesnar for using their leverage to their favour.
If you were told that you only needed to show up to work a limited number of days a year and you still got paid far more than 99% of the employees in your company, would you refuse it? Probably not.
McMahon is a fan of Brock Lesnar and has been one for a lot longer than you might realize. Despite this, fans aren't really crazy about The Beast Incarnate, especially in the last few years or so.
In fact, many fans don't even understand what McMahon sees in Lesnar that he gives him such privileges. Here are a few reasons as to why he loves Lesnar so much.
#5. Box office star
Like it or not, Brock Lesnar is undoubtedly among the two biggest box office draws in WWE today. He moves the needle and gets the numbers and that's a fact. Moreover, Lesnar found a lot of success in his first WWE run, but we often forget that the run lasted all but two years. Lesnar's current run has seen him outlast his previous one by over three times!
But it was his UFC run that made him a real box office draw. Before the rapid rise of Conor McGregor, Lesnar was the biggest box office draw in UFC, and that pours onto WWE as well. The very same reason that WWE pushes Ronda Rousey is that she's a box office draw.
