Paul Heyman Recalls Saying 'Holy F*ck, Look At That' When Brock Lesnar Came To The Ring

Paul Heyman still hasn't gotten used to how imposing Brock Lesnar is.

Heyman and Lesnar have been working together for a long time; they were paired up together when "The Next Big Thing" first arrived in WWE, and despite some splits here and there, they have reunited on multiple occasions. They also have a close relationship in real life, but Heyman was recently stuck by the former world champion's intimidating stature.

Speaking on Tetragrammaton with Rick Rubin, Heyman recalled how he was in the ring with Roman Reigns on the April 3 episode of WWE Raw, and when Lesnar came out, he was taken aback at how large The Beast" was. He noted that he wasn't used to seeing Lesnar at that angle. Instead, Heyman had often looked at others who were having that same reaction.

“I was standing in the ring this past Monday. We are taping this on the Wednesday after WrestleMania. I’m standing in the ring with Roman Reigns, who’s an impressive individual. Let’s just state that for the record. I mean, this is not a slouch standing there. This is someone that looks like a man because he is one. I’m standing in the ring, and Brock Lesnar’s music hits, and Brock walks out in his fight gear. I looked at Roman, and I went, ‘Holy fuck, look at that!’ After all these years, I’m still not used to being out there watching him come at us. I’m used to being on the other side of that. I’m used to walking out with him, looking at the faces of people going, ‘Holy fuck, look at that!’ Roman looks at me and he says, ‘Yeah, now you know what we all saw.’ I just said, ‘Man, he is freaking huge. Holy shit! What the fuck?’ When I said that, I realized the camera is picking us up, and I did say, ‘My Tribal Chief.’ He just looks at me, and he says, ‘Man, it just never ceases to amaze me. Standing here, watching him, and when he circles you like a shark, you realize I’m in for a physical evening," Heyman said.
