If there’s anyone you don’t want to get into a fight with, it’s Brock Lesnar. There have been numerous stories over the years of the ex-UFC fighter getting a little too physical with his adversaries, notably drawing blood from Randy Orton at SummerSlam 2016 and laying a stiff punch into Braun Strowman at the 2018 Royal Rumble.
The instances, though they may sometimes be an innocent accident, have drawn significant heat on Lesnar. Chris Jericho famously got into a backstage scuffle with the one-time UFC Heavyweight Champion following the aforementioned SummerSlam 2016 bout vs. Randy Orton, which saw Brock Lesnar execute a series of strong forearm strikes on ‘The Viper’.
“Somebody Went To Sleep” – Brock Lesnar On Street Dance Altercation
Speaking in a 2016 interview with Highly Questionable, Brock Lesnar opened up on an altercation he had during what is referred to as a ‘street dance’ where he allegedly knocked out a bar patron in a dispute over alcohol:
“I just told this story not too long ago, to one of my friends. We were at a function. They’re called a street dance. In a rural area, they close off main streets of the town. There’s meals that are cooked on the street and bars are open, obviously. I remember one night I was at a function.
Went to the bar, ordered a couple drinks, turned around, went to grab my drinks and another person grabbed them. I was like, ‘Hey, man, I think those are mine.’ He was like, ‘No,’ you know, kinda brushed me off. I just grabbed them from him, turned around and walked away.
In the meantime, the bartender had handed him his drinks [and] he proceeded to bust me over the head with them. That was a long time ago. Then things ended very quickly. Very quickly. Somebody went to sleep. It wasn’t me. Then the cops came, and I left.”
Brock Lesnar recently returned to WWE programming to begin a new feud with Bobby Lashley, with a singles bout between the duo scheduled for Crown Jewel on November 5th.
