• Braun Strowman Comments On Getting Punched By Brock Lesnar At Royal Rumble 2018

During a recent interview with Daily Star, “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman talked about getting punched by Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble 2018, teaming with Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss in the Mixed Match Challenge & more.

Below are the highlights:

On stiffing Brock Lesnar with a knee to the face and getting punched in return at Royal Rumble 2018:

“Any time Brock and I are in the ring it’s very physical. You’re talking about two larger-than-life human beings who are fighting for dominance. Stuff happens. It’s a contact sport – it’s not tennis. We’re not going out there to slap a ball around, we’re going out there to beat each other up. That’s what we did.”

On being a big man in today’s pro wrestling environment:

“I’m a dying breed, considering how fast-paced the sport has become with the cruiserweights and guys like AJ Styles who can go out there and do these crazy, unbelievable things.”

On teaming with Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss in the Mixed Match Challenge:

“To be able to wind down a little bit when my body was beat up, I was fighting a little bit of a cold, was a very entertaining and refreshing segment to go out and work with. I got to show another layer of Braun Strowman the character, to show that he has a little bit of a softer side. It might be that he’s sweet on Alexa Bliss.”

You can watch the exchange of blows between Strowman & Lesnar below:

If you missed it before, Lesnar told Strowman to “slow the f*** down” after their incident. Strowman was visibly shaken after Lesnar’s strikes and he reportedly apologized to Brock backstage after the match. Strowman was later seen with an ice pack on his face backstage.
