During an appearance on the ‘Wrestling Now & Then’ podcast, former WWE Superstar Paul London remembered his match against Brock Lesnar on a 2003 episode of SmackDown.
Here’s what London had to say:
“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’ he said.
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 a tornado.
I mean, I had known my whereabouts, I was just, sense of direction was out the window.
So, I was a little discombobulated after that.”
Paul London wrestled for WWE from October 2003 until he was released in November 2008, but also had stints in Ring of Honor (2002-2003, 2013-2014), Total Nonstop Action! (2003) and many different independent promotions.
His biggest accomplishments were winning the WWE World Tag Team Championship once, the WWE Tag Team Championship twice and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship once.
In 2019, Paul London returned to the now renamed IMPACT Wrestling to work as a Producer.
