Brock Lesnar is the latest name called out by former Superstar Terri Runnels in the #SpeakingOut movement. The former Diva has shared the story of how shamelessly The Beast had exposed himself to her back in the day.
Despite becoming the youngest WWE Champion in 2002, Lesnar quit Vince McMahon’s promotion to try his luck in NFL. The decorated wrestler couldn’t make it in football and signed with UFC before making his way back to WWE.
During a recent interview with Fox News, former WWE head of security Jimmy Noonan revealed how miserable Lesnar actually was during his first WWE run.
“Brock was a very, very different type of guy. The business just wasn’t for Brock.”
“The business just wasn’t who Brock was. Brock is a guy who wants to go shoot elk in his backyard and wants to ice fish. WWE wasn’t for him but he did very well at it but at the same time, he was miserable.”
Lesnar hated the WWE Universe so much so that he even purchased his own private jet simply for the purpose of flying alone and avoiding fans at the airport.
“Brock was sometimes really miserable. There was one morning when we were at the airport and we were at the airport again at 5 o’clock getting another 5 AM flight to another city. I shadowed Brock because he was the champ.”
“We walk into the airport at the same time and he looks at me and goes ‘Noonan if one fan comes up to me and asks me for an autograph, I’m gonna punch you right in the face’ and that would be the beginning of my day.”
“He hated WWE so much at the time that he bought his own airplane to fly in on his own expense so he wouldn’t have to be with the boys in the airport and be with the fans.”
The latest rumors suggest that Lesnar could be returning to WWE in time for SummerSlam. While The Beast hated the business back in the day, today he is undoubtedly one of the happiest wrestlers in the industry, thanks to his part-time schedule and humongous paychecks!
