Brock Lesnar is generally regarded as one of the best personalities in the WWE currently, and he even received tremendous praise from another legend himself, John Cena. The current WWE Champion has a very reserved personality, and a little is known about the superstar apart from his professional career.

Corey Graves recently brought up the former UFC Champion in his After the Bell podcast and mentioned the night when RAW had to be canceled due to weather issues in Hartford, CT. This was the post-Rumble show, which ended up having Rumble highlights and sit-down interviews with Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.

Graves mentioned meeting Lesnar for the first time on the show and told that he was initially terrified of the Beast. However, Graves eventually struck up a conversation with Lesnar, who had paid for the bar to remain open for the superstars, who had to endure the canceled show.

“That night stands out to me because it was the first night I encountered Brock Lesnar in person. I found myself in a conference room sitting beside him and there was an awkward silence because neither of us knew each other or what to make of one another other than I was as terrified of him in person as I had been for years on television. So, I did what any reasonable human would do in that situation.”

“I complimented him on his jacket, which led to a surprisingly fun little exchange and conversation with Brock Lesnar, who did not decide to tear me limb for limb. Allegedly, the now WWE Champion paid a significant amount of money to keep the bar wide open for everybody to make sure they made the best of a crappy situation.”

The most recent episode of RAW was in danger of being canceled due to weather issues. However, history thankfully didn’t repeat itself and the fans were treated to a full-fledged, fun episode of the red brand.

It is always great to hear stories about Lesnar, who is a rather secretive person and chooses to stay away from the limelight more often than not.
