Brock Lesnar and R-Truth took part in a now infamous segment back in January of 2020, when R-Truth declared himself as part of the Royal Rumble match, which Brock Lesnar had announced his entry into.
R-Truth was a recent guest on the Out of Character podcast, where he explained the origins of this segment, and how people backstage had a bet going that he could make Lesnar laugh.
“The thing about that was they didn’t want Brock to know what I was going to say. I’m like, I don’t know, I feel like personally, Brock should know what I’m going to say and they’re like, ‘No, no, no Truth, we’ve got a bet going. We want to see if you can make him laugh, if you can pop Brock. I said I can make him laugh but I want him to laugh in a happy way, you know what I’m saying? I don’t want him to turn into Brock – Brock out there. I agreed to it. When I went out there, I saw Brock starting to hold his laugh in.
Truth continued on, explaining how Lesnar gave him a hug when they got backstage. He said:
“I knew he was going to laugh when I hit the Paul Heyman line because he thought that I was talking about him. When I hit it and he laughed, I did all I could not to laugh because laughing is affectionate and you’ll start somebody else to start laughing. When Brock laughed, I tried my best to hold it in as much as I could, that was one of my best moments right there. When we got to the back, Brock hugged me, man, and he was like, ‘you’re funny, you’re funny.’ It was a good moment, a good TV segment.”
