The NFL’s George Kittle Criticizes Brock Lesnar For Only Wrestling “Three Times A Year”, & More


During a recent interview with NBC Sports, NFL 49ers tight end George Kittle commented on being a huge WWE fan and attending the recent TLC pay-per-view event. Kittle also criticized Brock Lesnar for being an “absentee champion” who only wrestles about three times a year. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On watching TLC 2018 live in attendance: “It was pretty epic. It was super cool. That was one of the most fun times I’ve had watching a women’s match because they killed it. They did a lot better than a lot of other things I’ve seen. Definitely the best main event I’ve seen in a long time.”

On WWE promising to fix their problems: “I think the script is a little messed up right now,” Kittle said this week of the WWE. They said they were going to fix it, and I believe them. I’m looking forward to see what they do. You have Dean Ambrose back, and his feud with Seth Rollins is great.”

On his criticism of Brock Lesnar: “I hate it when there is a champion that doesn’t wrestle every week. Brock Lesnar wrestles maybe three times a year. I think that’s kind of hard for fans to watch because you’re not really a champion if you don’t wrestle. A championship match. That’s what really excites me.”

On his favorite matches: “One of my favorite things is when I see guys flying out of the ring 24-7. Ladders matches, stuff like that. I love when there’s not a single second of down time. Everyone getting pushed, fight, fight, fight, fall out of the ring, and the next guy comes in. He falls out, next guy comes in. It’s like a rotation of six guys.”

On why he also likes Ring of Honor: “The fast-paced stuff is what really interests me. … In Ring of Honor, they have guys that do 25-minute matches, but they feel like 5 minutes because there is so much stuff going on. You’re just like, ‘Oh my goodness. This is incredible.’ ”
