John Bradshaw Layfield Recalls Brock Lesnar Offering To Put Him Over In Front Of His College Buddies

In JBL's opinion, Brock Lesnar should be an Avenger.

During a recent Q&A session on his YouTube Channel (seen above), John "Bradshaw" Layfield shared that he was in awe of Brock Lesnar the first time he laid eyes on him. He continued on to share a story of Brock offering to put him over in front of his college buddies. Here is what happened:

"I was working with Brock in Abilene, and I said, 'Hey, Brock, I want to talk to you.' He said, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah. Your college buddies are here. I'm gonna put you over.' I said, 'Brock, they don't care who goes over. I couldn't care less. You win, I win. It doesn't matter.' I said, 'We're going to a place afterwards.' So that's what I was telling him.

Brock hit me with a belly-to-belly suplex, and it's hard suplexing a tall guy. Not because of weight but because you end up spiking a guy on his head. Brock caught me, throws me in a suplex, and I asked him before, I said, 'Brock, are you sure you can do this?' Not strength-wise, it's just the logistics of throwing a guy that's really tall. Brock said, 'I've been suplexing people since I was five years old.' I said, 'Alright.' He's suplexed me so easily that I got up and said, 'Do it again.' He grabbed me and he did it again. I said, 'Do it a third time.' This time I didn't do anything. I just stood there. He threw me like a child. The strength of Brock Lesnar is different. It's Avenger. He should be an Avenger is what he should be."

JBL was recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the class of 2020.

Brock Lesnar recently returned to WWE and is set to face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at Crown Jewel on October 21, 2021.
