Shinsuke Nakamura is the current United States Champion in WWE, which means that he has seen first hand the way that Brock Lesnar has run through the company and held them to ransom over the Universal Championship, but this isn’t the first time The Japanese star has worked alongside Lesnar.

Many fans are unaware that Lesnar once wrestled Nakamura during his days in Japan back in 2006, but it was The Beast who came out on top in the match.

This isn’t a match that The Artist often talks about but in his new book The King Of Strong Style 1980-2014, he was finally able to dish the dirt on his past issues with Lesnar.

Reddit User Nivvd recently revealed excerpts from his book, where it appears that there is no love lost between the two men.

“Part of that was luck. But that match was seriously rough. First, Lesnar was saying all this stuff about how he respected New Japan, but it felt to me like that was just for show, that he didn’t really respect the promotion. Like, somewhere, he was looking down on Japanese people. I lost the match, and that was the first time I cried at pro wrestling after a match.”

Nakamura is someone who has a lot of love for the business and he felt that Lesnar was looking down on the promotion and Japanese people like he was only there to do a job and obviously has no love lost for the current Universal Champion.

“I felt like this was too much; he was seriously scoffing at us. Lesnar won the championship and took the belt home, I told Simon if the company didn’t get its shit in order, that belt was definitely going to get nicked. I didn’t honestly believe that when we fought. But it ended up just like I feared.”

“He has the physical stuff, plus a straightforward strength and a certain amount of flexibility, so there was a bit of the monster to him. But I didn’t like his personality, you know? He might have made a real mark in UFC, but he didn’t even seem to notice the audience booing. I was like, ‘Oh, this guy is a heel to the core.’”
