Brock Lesnar was gone from WWE television after dropping the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. That changed at WWE SummerSlam last year, where he made his shocking return to WWE television and confronted Roman Reigns. Brock officially came back as a babyface, much to the delight of fans.
Ahead of the Royal Rumble event earlier this year, Brock was involved in a bizarre sequence of events at a restaurant. At the same time, he also put surprise Jackass star Wee Man through a table at a restaurant.
While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Johnny Knoxville recalled people losing their minds when Brock Lesnar slammed Wee Man through a table at the restaurant.
“I became the biggest Brock Lesnar fan as soon as he slammed Wee Man through that table. I gotta admit that I couldn’t stand afterwards. I just felt to my knees and I was hugging strangers. I went to hug Brock. It was an amazing moment at the Four Seasons restaurant. People lost their minds. Every time Wee Man gets slammed, or slams someone, people lose their minds. We couldn’t have been any happier and none of us made any movement to clear any glasses or plates off the table. We just let him get slammed right into the glassware and everything else just like that.
The hotel bar was furious after Brock Lesnar’s actions as well. Regardless, the incident gave Johnny Knoxville the extra bit of publicity he needed in time for the release of Jackass Forever. Fans will certainly remember that moment for a long time now.
