During a recent appearance on the “Submission Radio” podcast, AEW star Paul Wight (The Big Show in WWE) commented on his time in WWE and how intimidating Brock Lesnar was backstage in the company. Wight said,
“I always tease Brock when I see him, I say he’s got the best backstage game since Hulk Hogan. … I would see Brock walk in the buildings when he came back after the UFC stuff and people would flatten themselves against the walls because like, they were so intimidated by Brock, and Brock is a great guy. He’s one of the most honest people you’ll ever meet in your life because if he likes you, he likes you and if he don’t, he just doesn’t mess with you.”
Following his run in the UFC where he became their World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar returned to WWE in April 2012.
