Brock Lesnar was absent from WWE television after dropping the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. That changed at WWE SummerSlam last year, where he made his shocking return to WWE television and confronted Roman Reigns. Brock officially came back as babyface, much to the delight of fans.
Ahead of the Royal Rumble event last month, Brock Lesnar recalled the bizarre sequence of events at a restaurant. At the same time he also put surprise Jackass star Wee Man through table at a restaurant.
While speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, Brock Lesnar recalled how Johnny Knoxville broke his door down at a restaurant. He then talked about putting Wee Man through a table.
“That was not staged at all. I flew into town for the Royal Rumble and I got a private room. I come walking through the restaurant at the hotel – I just scurry through people, get in and go hide in my hole and eat my steak. My friend went, ‘Jackass crew is out there,’ and I’m like, ‘Really?’ We walked by them. Then I sent the waiter out, sent a nice bottle of wine.
Then, next thing I know, Knoxville comes through the back room, breaks my damn door down. Broke the door on the private room. I come walking out – and in the midst of all this, they were setting themselves on fire in the restaurant – I really had no idea that at the time. I’m going home, walking out and Wee Man stands up and peacocks me a little bit. I just picked him and be like, ‘Right there on the table I’m going to put you down right there.’ None of it was promo, none of it was staged. It just turned out to be really fun and good for business.”
The hotel bar was furious after Brock Lesnar’s actions as well. Regardless, he incident gave Johnny Knoxville the extra bit of publicity he needed in time for Jackass Forever to release earlier this month.
