WWE signed one-legged wrestler Zach Gowen in 2003, and he had a brief stint on the blue brand. The 40-year-old was involved in feuds with some of the biggest names on television at the time, including Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar. It appears he never wants to face Brock Lesnar again.
Brock Lesnar had reverted to being a full-fledged heel, regularly targeting SmackDown’s babyfaces by August 2003. On August 19th, 2003, during a SmackDown taping, he met Zach Gowen in a singles competition and viciously beat him up in front of his mother.
As a result, Gowen won against The Beast Incarnate by disqualification. Gowen was released from his WWE contract in early 2004 but has remained active in the independent circuit.
A fan took to Twitter and called for WWE to bring back Gowen to finish his memorable feud with Brock Lesnar. Gowen replied to the fan and made it clear he never wants to square off against The Beast Incarnate again.
No thanks!!!! I’m a sober 40 year old amputee tax paying civilian father of 4 that works as a motivational speaker. That story is FINISHED 😭
As for Brock Lesnar, he is currently feuding with Cody Rhodes again after what transpired on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. We’ll have to see how WWE will continue to book the feud in the coming weeks.
