• Braun Strowman Reveals What Happened Backstage After Brock Lesnar Punched Him For Real At Royal Rumble 2018

During the triple threat Universal Championship match at Royal Rumble 2018, Braun Strowman accidentally nailed Brock Lesnar in the face with a vicious knee strike.

This led to Brock retaliating with brutal punches to Strowman’s stomach and jaw. Lesnar then told Strowman to “slow the f*** down”.

You can watch it below:

During a recent interview with Wrestling Travel, Strowman was asked what happened backstage after this incident and below is what he 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.

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.”
