Paul Wight recalls when Brock Lesnar scared 300 fans. The two worked together during their time in the WWE and Ohio Valley Wrestling.
Paul Wight and Brock Lesnar had amazing chemistry with each other. So much so, that Wight credited working with Lesnar at OVW as the reason why he was called back to the main roster after being sent to developmental to work on his cardio and lose weight.
Wight has since moved to AEW. He recently appeared on Renee Paquette’s podcast Oral Sessions. The former WWE Champion spoke on a number of topics including a hilarious story involving the beast incarnate, Brock Lesnar as well.
Paul Wight recalls when Brock Lesnar scared 300 fans
“So we come right to the (airport gate). And they had some little club rope trying to keep everyone away. It was pretty bad. Brock comes out with his glasses on, blonde hair; just mad at the world because he’s been traveling for 20 hours. If you know Brock, he’s the sweetest guy you’ve ever met if he likes you. If he doesn’t… it’s not going to end well for you.”
“And I remember pictures going off, people are screaming; someone snatched his glasses off. He looked at everybody like this and everyone pulled their cameras down. And everyone there got scared. Then he flinched and 300 people went ‘HUH!’ They all gasped. I started laughing so hard. And he says ‘I appreciate it in advance before you take a picture.’ Then he walks off. And I have tears in my eyes.”
Paul Wight handed Brock Lesnar his first pinfall loss in the WWE, although he needed a little help from Paul Heyman. In doing so, he ended his WWE Championship reign. Today, neither of the two are with WWE. However, it is likelier that Lesnar will eventually return for a partnership with Vince McMahon while Wight adapts to his new role at AEW.
