JBL Shares Brock Lesnar Once Offered To Put Him Over Because His Friends Were In Attendance


JBL spoke about a wide range of topics on the latest edition of Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw. 

During it, the WWE Hall of Famer discussed a time where Brock Lesnar wanted to put him over at a WWE event simply because JBL’s friends were in attendance. 

“I was working with Brock in Abilene, TX.  I said, ‘Hey Brock, I want to talk to you.’  He said, ‘Yea, yea, yea, your college buddies are here.  I’m going to put you over.’  I said, ‘Brock, they don’t care who goes over.  I could care less.  You win, I win, it doesn’t matter.  We’re going to a place afterwards’, so that’s what I wanted to tell him.  (In the match), Brock hit me with a belly to belly suplex, and it’s hard suplexing a taller guy, not because of weight, but because you end up spiking a guy on his head.  Brock caught me and threw me in a suplex.  I had asked him before, I said, ‘Brock, are you sure you can do this?’  Not strength wise, it’s just the logistics of throwing a guy that’s really tall.  Brock said, ‘I’ve been suplexing people since I was 5 years old.’  I said, ‘All right.’  He suplexed me so easily that I got up and said, ‘Do it again.’  He grabbed me and he did it again.  I said, ‘Do it a third time’, and this time I didn’t do anything.  I just stood there, and he threw me like a child.  The strength of Brock Lesnar is like an Avenger.  He should be an Avenger.”
