• Former WWE Star Says He Would Humiliate Brock Lesnar In Amateur Wrestling
During a recent interview on Submission Radio, former WWE Superstar Jack Swagger was asked what would happen if he faced Brock Lesnar in an amateur wrestling match.
Below is what Swagger said:
“By compare wrestling techniques you mean that I can take Brock Lesnar down at will? Yes, then we compared wrestling techniques. I could close my eyes and tie one hand behind my back and I could bounce Brock Lesnar’s forehead off the mat if he ever, ever tried to wrestle with me (laughs). No, we never had the opportunity but that’s what would happen. So you can just say it did happen.”
