Paul Wight Talks About Brock Lesnar Scaring Fans in Australia
Years ago, Paul Wight feuded with Brock Lesnar.
Brock was the WWE Champion at the time and recently beat The Rock for the title. On Oral Sessions, he spoke about Brock Lesnar and his trip to Australia with him. He once scared the fans. “So we come right to the (airport gate),” said White.
“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. Because I just watched 300 people pee themselves!” He also praised Brock Lesnar for performing well during their feud. Paul was a mid-card wrestler before his feud with Lesnar. Lesnar even dropped the WWE Title to Paul during their feud.
“For a long time I had a lot of heat up there (in WWE),” said Paul Wight. “Brock knew me. And they asked Brock and he said ‘I want to work with the Giant. You guys don’t know how good he is.’ And then we had that stretcher match. After that, it was off and running”.
