Prior to the 2020 Royal Rumble PPV, R-Truth, Brock Lesnar, and Paul Heyman were involved in a hilarious segment that saw the ex-WWE 24/7 Champion officially declare and promptly un-declare himself for the high-profile 30-Man Elimination match before eating up a devastating F-5.
The interaction between Lesnar and Truth was quite well-received by the WWE Universe and The Beast legitimately laughing throughout the entire segment was indeed a golden moment worth cherishing. It is to be noted that Lesnar had no knowledge about Truth’s appearance and the creative had planned it in such a way so that the WWE Champion could be caught off guard by the humor.
While speaking to “With Spandex“, R-Truth revealed that Lesnar isn’t done taking him to “Sioux Falls City”; as a matter of fact, The Beast wants to share the ring with Truth again and has been pitching ideas to make it happen at the earliest.
“Brock actually has been pitching ideas. He wants to work with me doing something because of that segment. He pitched a couple ideas. He and I talked afterwards. The sky’s the limit. This business is always changing, and I’m always changing with things.”
Chris Jericho has been a key force behind AEW’s launch and subsequent success in the pro wrestling industry. The high-profile ex-WWE Superstar added yet another feather in his cap by becoming the inaugural AEW World Champion last year and has successfully held the title for 159+ days.
On Talk Is Jericho podcast, Le Champion noted that he had actually received approval from Vince McMahon to work with Tony Khan‘s promotion, but the WWE Chairman seemingly regretted his decision after he had already inked the multi-million dollar NFL-esque deal with the upstart promotion.
“I’m not in AEW because I was a rebel. I’m with AEW because Vince went, ‘Go.’ And then, when I went, he went, ‘Did you sign the contract?’ I said, ‘Well, yeah.’ He said, ‘Can you get out of it?’ ‘No! You told me to sign it!'”
