Former NBA MVP and All-Star Karl Malone called out WWE Heavyweight champion Brock Lensar yesterday in an interview on America’s Pregame on Fox Sports 1!
When Malone was asked about a rematch with Dennis Rodman, Malone said that he’s still waiting for that call from WWE but if he’s coming back, he wants Brock Lesnar.
“I want Brock Lesnar, I’m calling him out. I want Brock Lesnar,” Malone said while laughing.
Malone, who is a big wrestling fan, worked for WCW in 1998 and made several Nitro appearances and even wrestled in the main event of Bash at the Beach that year teaming up with Diamond Dallas Page taking on Hulk Hogan and Dennis Rodman.
DDP frequently put over Malone in interviews later throughout the years citing his enthusiasm and will to learn how the business works.
