Brock Lesnar Taking Heat For Being A Part-Timer
Everyone knows that all good things must come to an end.
Back in April of 2014, Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30. The victory was beyond significant because it was The Undertaker’s first loss at Wrestlemania in 21 years.
The defeat rocked the WWE and shocked wrestling fans everywhere, who were more than expecting The Undertaker to extend his wrestling streak.
Since that time, Lesnar has taken a lot of heat. Fans are criticizing Lesnar’s management and creative team, calling him just a part-time WWE star. They think that since he broke The Undertaker’s coveted streak that he should devote more time in the ring.

Dave Batista, who is currently out promoting his new film Guardians of the Galaxy where he plays an outer-space warrior, has been especially vocal regarding The Undertaker’s streak being broken. He recently voiced his displeasure in an interview with the Huffington Post:
It sucked! Honestly, I thought it sucked. I haven’t really talked much about it but I think it was a bad decision, a horrible decision. I don’t have any say in the matter but to me, watching as a fan, it made me sick. Brock Lesnar beating him didn’t seem to work and it really wasn’t good that Brock left the day after. I just don’t see how that made sense at all. I don’t think anyone wanted to see the streak broken and it just didn’t make sense to me.
According to the Inquisitr, Batista is not alone in his thinking. Several full-time wrestlers are not happy with Lesnar’s part-time status. He has wrestled in only seven Pay-Per-View events since 2012. His record during that stretch is 5 – 2. His two losses were to John Cena and Triple H.
Now, Lesnar will be wrestling for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam 2014 on August 17 against John Cena. If Lesnar defeats Cena (which many think will happen) and straps on the belt expect the anti-Lesnar criticism to go through the roof.
