Bissonnette and the crew were in town for the Winter Classic between the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues while Lesnar was in the middle of his travels from WWE Day 1 in Atlanta, GA.

Speaking on Spittin' Chiclits, Bissonnette told the story of their drinks with Brock.

"We went back to the hotel to grab a bite to eat and a few pops in the lobby and all of a sudden, this big massive guy in a cowboy hat walks in and Wayne recognized him. He goes, 'that's Brock Lesnar.' He said hello, ended up sitting down, we spent about two hours with him, having drinks, shooting the shit. I had no idea that Brock Lesnar bought property in Saskatchewan and lives in Saskatchewan, he just commutes and drives over the border about two hours away and that's where he travels out of. Great guy, very interesting, and he's still going. I was like, 'How are you not banged up and how are you still wrestling at this age?' He said about 13 years ago, he got this trainer and it changed his whole life as far as eating habits and the way he trains. I think he said he could probably wrestle at a high level for another three or four years," recalled BizNasty.

Bissonnette continued by saying, "He was a great guy. I know he's known as a bit of a heel and he has to have kind of an asshole persona as far as his character, but he was the complete opposite. He actually exchanged numbers with me and I got a text the next day, 'Let's keep in touch man!' Alright, fuckin eh, I'll let you chokeslam me through a table for content. Let's do it."

Lesnar would show up to WWE Raw on Monday where he learned that he would face Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title at WWE Royal Rumble.

Lesnar is also set to be part of WWE SmackDown on Friday where he will confront Roman Reigns.
