Brock Lesnar is known to be one of the most dangerous and gifted in-ring athletes in the world of combat sports. WWE’s resident Beast Incarnate has been force to be reckoned with from the very beginning of his career. He once discussed running over a kid during the shoot of the famous WWE SummerSlam commercial in 2003, and it seems like it was totally an accident.
The 2003 commercial for SummerSlam is most remembered for Brock Lesnar laying out a fake shark with the F-5, taking inspiration from a Jaws parody commercial that same year. Lesnar revealed his reaction to the idea being pitched to him on an episode of WWE Confidential in August 2003.
“I’m like, that’s the stupidest thing I ever heard!”
The ad commercial also featured Brock Lesnar toward the water to rescue people on the beach. However, The Beast Incarnate accidentally bulldozed over a young boy while running through the sand during the shoot.
“There was a couple of incidents in the shoot,” Lesnar said. “I was trying to run through all these people. Out of nowhere, this little kid, I thought he was gonna turn, I thought he was gonna veer off, and all of a sudden he just, boom, ran right into me. I was like, ‘Whoops, sorry.'”
Brock Lesnar’s accidental push sent the boy straight into a woman and both fell over. Thankfully, no one suffered any major injuries, and the commercial was shot successfully with smiles all over.
