Paul Wight, formerly known as The Big Show, was one of the top wrestlers of the Ruthless Aggression Era. During his career, he had various rivalries with several top WWE superstars. One of his rivals was WWE legend, Brock Lesnar. Recently, in the Submission Radio interview, Big Show stated that Lesnar’s backstage persona was the best since Hulk Hogan.
Additionally, ahead of AEW’s Double or Nothing PPV, in an interview host, Kacper Rosolowski asked Wight about some of his craziest memories with Brock Lesnar.
Replying to that, Wight said, “He’s got the best backstage game since Hulk Hogan. Like when I first started wrestling, like people would whisper when Hulk Hogan came into the building. Like you know, it’s like the old Bugs Bunny cartoon, ‘Leopold, Leopold, Leopold’, you know, that kind of a thing.”
Adding to this he said, “But I would see Brock walking into the buildings when he came back after the UFC stuff, and like people would flatten themselves against the wall ’cause they were so intimidated by Brock.”
The Big Show also mentioned that Lesnar is a genuinely nice guy. He is one of the most trustworthy guys he had ever met. Additionally, he told that if he likes you; he likes you, and if he doesn’t, he doesn’t bother you.
Brock Lesnar vs The Big Show
The Beast had many intense feuds in his wrestling career. However, one of his most heated feuds was against the Big Show. There were numerous occasions where two of WWE’s most powerful forces collided in the ring.
The most noteworthy match was when they faced off for the WWE Championship in a short, heated match at Survivor Series 2002. Lesnar was defeated thanks to a mix of Big Show’s size, and steel chair shots.
