Brock Lesnar remains one of the most highly accomplished WWE Superstars of all time. He has seen a ton of success, both inside and outside WWE. He also did a grand gesture in the past.
Lesnar is definitely one of the most intimidating superstars in the history of the company. However, stories about him backstage tell a completely different tale.
The RAW show scheduled for January 26, 2015 in Hartford, Connecticut was canceled due to a snowstorm that hit the Northeast United States. Just before the show aired at 8 p.m., a travel ban was issued for the area. The episode featured multiple backstage interviews of the talent at WWE headquarters.
While speaking on After the Bell, Corey Graves revealed that Lesnar paid a bar to keep it open for people to make the most out of the situation.
“The show was very interesting. They re-aired the Royal Rumble match from the night before [and aired] a few backstage interviews with Roman, Brock and many others, and allegedly, [the former] WWE Champion paid a significant amount of money to keep the bar wide open for everybody to make sure they made the best of a crazy situation. I, of course, stayed in a completely different hotel, but it led to me finding the only open establishment in the scenic Stamford, CT where myself and two-thirds of The Shield made sure that none of the beers at said establishment went unattended.”
Brock Lesnar will be facing off against Bobby Lashley at Crown Jewel next month. We will have to wait and see how the match will turn out to be.
