“Beating people up that makes me happy, this isn’t some character this is exactly who I am.” – Brock Lesnar.
The man who has cast a shadow over the WWE since his return back in 2012 is on display in full “Suplex City” mode as he has his new Blu-Ray release, “Eat. Sleep. Conquer. Repeat.” with a Blu-ray edition running just over 8 hours and 30 minutes as it includes 5 more bonus matches.
It’s clear WWE is going all out with the editions available for this release as there is a DVD edition, a Blu-ray version, a Blu-ray Steelbook version and a The Collector’s Edition that includes a pair of replica gloves, a Brock Lesnar Topps trading card, and an autographed signature card with authentic ring canvas from WrestleMania 32.
For fans who may have bought Lesnar’s previous release, “Here Comes the Pain” some parts of this Blu-ray issue may be familiar as it shows extracts from the previous DVD, especially when you see a younger Lesnar telling of the way he would psyche out his opponents before a match. If you haven’t purchased that DVD then this will be all new but you can already hear fans who bought that release issue their concerns on social media. In my personal opinion showing a past Lesnar with the same philosophy as he does today sends the message that this is a man who follows his own mantra, who does things his own way and that appears to sum up the character, well the attitude of Brock Lesnar and it has made his the success he his today.
New interview moments does include him discussing the Undertaker, John Cena, his time on Stone Cold Podcast and more, “The thing is I knew I was going to beat the Undertaker, everybody knew it, they just didn’t want to believe it. For God’s sake why wouldn’t Brock Lesnar be able to beat the Undertaker because he’s a mythical God? It’s not rocket science people why wouldn’t Brock Lesnar be able to beat the Undertaker.”
Admittedly the only thing that would make, “Eat. Sleep. Conquer. Repeat.” complete would be interviews of his opponents and their thoughts of Lesnar. What is it like to step into the ring with him, face him in a match or even interview his friends so fans can get a more human side to the monster. However, this is perhaps deliberate by WWE, why would you want to make a destructive monster look more human?
