Madman Fulton comes from an amateur wrestling background, making it the transition into pro wrestling a natural fit for him.
When he was 16, he had the opportunity to get on the mat with a 29-year-old Brock Lesnar.
Speaking to the Wrestling's Cool podcast, Fulton recalled his meeting with Lesnar.
"When I was 16, I wanted to go everywhere that had anything to do with pro wrestling. I would always try to find camps with Kurt Angle or Brock Lesnar, any pro wresting to learn their names and stories. No one was really there to guide me on this journey. I signed up for a heavyweight camp in Iowa. On the last day, they had Brock in to run a practice. He ran the practice and they had a tournament, the winner of the tournament got to wrestle Brock one-on-one. I was not going to let that opportunity slip. I ended up winning the tournament and they let me have a match with Brock. I thought it was going to be a practice thing and him rolling around. No. He wrestled him. I was 16 and it wasn't close. He wrestles that way against every opponent, he doesn't take it easy. He wasn't going to get embarrassed," recalled Fulton.
Lesnar would have been finished with his first WWE stint and a year away from his MMA debut against Min-Soo Kim in 2006, when Fulton was 16.
Fulton is currently signed to IMPACT Wrestling, where he teams with Ace Austin.
Fightful will have live coverage of IMPACT Wrestling beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
