Brock Lesnar accused of sexual harassment by Terri Runnels. She claims that the former WWE and UFC heavyweight champion exposed himself to her.
The world of wrestling is currently in the midst of a revolution. Several wrestlers have spoken out on the times someone took advantage of them. Several wresters have since been exposed and many have been swiftly dealt with.
There have been a number of high-profile names. However, the biggest name to have come out so far has to be that of former UFC and WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. Terri Runnels, a former manager in the WWE, has recently spoken of an incident regarding Lesnar and her time with the promotion.
Brock Lesnar accused of sexual harassment
“Brock did something that if it was in today’s day and time…You know,” She said on the KEE On Sports Podcast. He showed his p**** to me and called my name as I was walking past where he was in the dressing room and opened his towel so I could see his manly bits.
‘I would have much rather him not be so disrespectful of a female that’s been in this business for as long as I have been. He knew he was gonna have a lot of power, that they were gonna give him the strap but at that point, I’d been in this business a long time.
‘I have respect and what he did was very very wrong. From a respect standpoint, from a sexual harassment standpoint, it was wrong.”
This wasn’t the first time Runnels spoke of the incident. She had earlier narrated the incident back in 2004 with Wade Keller of (PWTorch).

It will be interesting to see how the WWE deal with this incident. Lesnar is arguably their biggest star and there have long been rumors of a SummerSlam return. However, the promotion has already said that anyone convicted would immediately be fired.
