Booker T’s thoughts on Brock Lesnar’s punishment for failing a drug test: Well, I’ll tell you, me personally, being an athlete, I’m always going to go out and represent. I’m going to go out there and fight fair and square. Now, Brock went out [and] he did something wrong, right? In the fight game, if you do something wrong, you should get punished for it. Am I right or wrong? $250,000, a year suspension, and what else? And they took the win away from [the] Mark Hunt [fight].

Okay. This is the way I look at it, right here. Brock Lesnar made $2.5 million minus $250,000, that’s $2.25 [million], and a vacation for a year. He probably wasn’t coming back [to UFC] for a year anyway. Do you know what I mean? And to take away my win from Mark Hunt, I’d take that. Do you know what I’m saying? Do you know what I mean? If I did something wrong, yeah, alright, I’ll take that. ‘Do you know what? Hold the check and just take out what you guys [want] and just give me the rest of it. Do you know what I mean? That’s cool.’

Booker T on how Lesnar should’ve been punished: Well, I think if anything a portion [of Lesnar’s pursue] should have [gone to Hunt]. A portion of it should have gone to Mark Hunt, perhaps $500,000 just to square everything up, just make everybody happy, but for Brock to still walk away with $2.25 [million] after something like that, some of the guys in that locker room that [have] been fighting for many, many years, they’ve got to be pretty upset by it.

But the one thing I’ve always said is they can be upset all they want. Brock Lesnar’s a draw. People talk about when The Rock comes back for WrestleMania, all the young guys in the locker room are going to be upset. And I always say, ‘when you guys in the locker room can start selling out WrestleMania, then you can start talking. Until then, keep your mouth shut! You’re going to get a check at the end of the day!’

I can’t say I disagree with Booker T for the most part. What exactly happened to Lesnar here? He gets the big comeback paycheck, he gets credit for the win at first and if he decides to fight again, he’s going to be welcomed back with open arms because of how big of a draw he really is. Lesnar comes off pretty unscathed here as far as things that really matter and still gets over a million dollar payday. That’s not exactly all fair.

Finally, Booker T has a point about selling out Wrestlemania. The Rock is brought back in every year because he’s one of the biggest stars in all of entertainment. It’s no different than bringing in the various celebrities or legends like Steve Austin or Shawn Michaels. People will pay to see him and that’s what matters at the end of the day. If people see you because they’re watching to see Rock, that benefits you as well. It’s not this horrible thing that people make it out to be.

Do you agree with Booker T. on either topic? Do you think Lesnar will fight in the UFC again? Let us know in the comments below.
