R-Truth is a true company many for WWE. Whether he’s in a serious storyline, or, far more commonly, a comedy bit, he’s always been willing to work with whoever and whatever the company placed in front of him. That includes Brock Lesnar.
Truth recently talked to Ryan Satin on Out of Character. He talked about his infamous Raw moment with the Best Incarnate. Lesnar was supposed to announce that he was entering the Royal Rumble. R-Truth’s job was to make him laugh based on a locker room bet.
“The thing about that was they didn’t want Brock to know what I was going to say. I’m like, I don’t know, I feel like personally, Brock should know what I’m going to say and they’re like, ‘No, no, no Truth, we’ve got a bet going. We want to see if you can make him laugh, if you can pop Brock.
I said I can make him laugh but I want him to laugh in a happy way, you know what I’m saying? I don’t want him to turn into Brock – Brock out there. I agreed to it. When I went out there, I saw Brock starting to hold his laugh in.
I knew he was going to laugh when I hit the Paul Heyman line because he thought that I was talking about him. When I hit it and he laughed, I did all I could not to laugh because laughing is affectionate, and you’ll start somebody else to start laughing. When Brock laughed, I tried my best to hold it in as much as I could, that was one of my best moments right there. When we got to the back, Brock hugged me, man, and he was like, ‘You’re funny, you’re funny.’ It was a good moment, a good TV segment.”
R-Truth was the NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion during his time with TNA. Since joining WWE, he’s taken on a more lighthearted role. It’s quite different from the harder side that he shows sometimes when he raps. That doesn’t mean he’s not well-respected and liked in the locker room, as his interaction with Brock Lesnar shows.
