Brock Lesnar has carved a career out being an intimidating and impressive athlete.
The former WWE and UFC Heavyweight Champion has struck fear into the hearts of opponents and is regularly noted by former foes as one of the strongest men they have ever stepped into the square circle with.
Lesnar has manhandled some for the largest Superstars to ever grace WWE, including a recent WrestleMania victory over ‘The Nigerian Giant’ Omos. So it is perhaps unsurprising that a former WWE Tag Team Champion of smaller stature has revealed that he was ‘slaughtered’ in a bout with ‘The Beast Incarnate’.
Former WWE Tag Team Champions Reveals Details Of Lesnar Bout
Speaking in a recent interview of Wrestling Then And Now, Paul London revealed details of a match with Lesnar back in 2003, that saw the future WWE Champion victorious in less than two minutes:
“I didn’t go up to Brock [before the match] or was like, ‘hey, we’re working.’ You know, just let him approach me when he’s ready. Make myself available for whatever he wants to do. If there’s anything in the suggestions that I feel that I can make look even better suggest that. Because I think it was like they wanted to like clothesline me at the beginning. I was like, ‘well, I can do like kinda 360 out of that,’ ‘Oh really, well do that’.
It was a slaughter. It was a slaughter. I mean he’s easily one of the strongest people, most powerful people I’ve ever been in the ring with, ever met really anywhere.
And when he got me up for that F5, that was like, I felt like Dorothy, you know, I was in tornado. I mean, I had no my whereabouts, I was just, sense of direction was out the window. So, I was a little discombobulated after that”.
London, who recently spoke out in negative fashion about fellow former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho, did reserve praise for Lesnar and noted he always treated him with respect following the contest:
“He was always cool to me after that. Not that he was a d*ck beforehand, but we didn’t know each other. He was always cool with me. I was always somebody, you know, we said hi to each other and bullsh*tted for a few minutes or whatever. I mean, he’s a bit of a standoff guy. And doesn’t really get along with just everybody in the locker room. That was a neat little feather in the cap”.
