Braun Strowman laughed backstage after Brock Lesnar punched him for real at WWE Royal Rumble 2018 – The Sun
WWE superstar Braun Strowman has revealed all about being on the receiving end of Brock Lesnar’s fist.
The “Monster Among Men” finally climbed to the top of the mountain after he defeated Goldberg for the Universal title at WrestleMania 36.
The 6ft 7in powerhouse stepped in as a late replacement for Roman Reigns to capture his first-ever world title in WWE after several failed attempts.
The closest Strowman came before was a showdown with Lesnar at the 2018 Royal Rumble, where he lost after being rocked by a real-life punch
The two giants and the legendary Kane were battling it out for the Universal Championship in a triple threat match when the eye-watering moment occurred.
Strowman caught former UFC heavyweight title holder Lesnar with a knee to the face.
And the Beast Incarnate exploded with rage, immediately getting to his feet and landing a huge right to the temple of Strowman.
We’re both very dominant males and neither of us wanted to give in an inch, so in the end we took an inch from each other
Speaking to Wrestling Travel on behalf of talkSPORT, the 36-year-old – real name Adam Scherr – has lifted the lid on what was said backstage following the bruising encounter.
And he insisted the two had no issues backstage over the physicality.
Strowman said: “We laughed about it afterwards. It is what it is. We got to the back and I said ‘Hey, my bad’ and he said the same thing and we went about our business.
“We’re both grown-ups, we both knew what we were getting into and at the end of the day, we’re both very dominant males and neither of us wanted to give in an inch, so in the end we took an inch from each other.”
The former WWE tag team champ continued: “Working with Brock I go in with the mentality that it’s a real fight. You have to.
“I remember Royal Rumble a couple of years ago, I got a little ants in my pants, so did he and we threw some heavy hitters at each other and carried on from there.
“Let’s face it, Brock’s one of the baddest human beings on the planet and I enjoy it, I like the physical aspect of it.
“I didn’t get into this thinking it was water polo or tennis or anything like that, I knew this was a full contact sport and when you’re in the ring with Brock Lesnar it is full contact.
“Ask anybody’s that’s worked with him. Brock brings the big fight and that’s why people pay money to see him.”
