Former WWE Star Wanted To Punch Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar is a big, tough dude. No one is going to deny that. However, it means that former WWE star Heath Slater wanting to punch Lesnar is that much more impressive.

During a recent interview with Table Talk, Slater (now just known as Heath) talked about the segment he had with Lesnar back in 2016. He mentioned that he had pitched to throw a punch at Lesnar before being attacked. However, it didn’t go as planned. Here is the quote, courtesy of Fightful:

“I just wanted to give Brock one punch, that was it. Paul was like, ‘If you hit Brock, you really have to hit him.’ Dude, whatever. I know how to throw a punch, I’ll make it look good. He says, ‘I don’t give a damn about your kids,’ BOOM! And then he kills me. The fans would have loved it. That’s all I pitched.”

Instead, Slater never got to throw his punch and was leveled by Brock Lesnar anyway. This was during the time when Slater was trying to earn a job with Raw and SmackDown because of all the kids he had to feed.
