Braun Strowman was recently interviewed by talkSPORT where he talked about a wide range of topics including an incident with Brock Lesnar.
The incident happened during a triple threat match for the WWE Universal Championship with himself, Lesnar, and Kane. The contest took place at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in 2018 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Strowman hit Lesnar with a knee that he didn’t like, which led to Lesnar responding with two legitimate punches. Strowman and Lesnar had a conversation after the match, which Strowman shared in this interview:
“We laughed about it afterwards. It is what it is. We got to the back and I said ‘Hey, my bad” 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.”
“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.”
