R-Truth: Guys Had A Bet To See If I Could Get Brock Lesnar To Laugh

R-Truth wanted to clue Brock Lesnar in.

In January 2020, R-Truth and Brock Lesnar met in the middle of the ring for a promo segment where Truth declare, and then undeclared, for the WWE Royal Rumble. Truth ended up making Lesnar laugh in the promo as he thought he would be going up against Paul Heyman, not Lesnar, in the Rumble.

Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Truth reflected on the segment.

"The thing about that is they didn't want Brock to know what I was going to say. I'm like, 'I feel like, personally, Brock should know what I'm going to say.' Paul was like, 'No Truth, we got a bet going, we want to see if you can make him laugh. Can you pop Brock?' I said, 'I can make him laugh, but I want him to laugh in a happy way. I don't want him to turn into Brock Brock.' I agreed to it and when I saw Brock starting to hold his laugh in, I knew he was going to laugh when I hit the Paul Heyman line because he thought I was talking about him. When I hit it and he laughed, I did all I could to not laugh. Laughing is infectious. When Brock laughed, I tried my best to hold it and I was holding it as much I could. That was one of my best moments. When we got to the back, me and Brock hugged and he was like, 'that was funny. You're funny!' It was a good moment, a good TV segment," he said.

Truth previously revealed that Brock has wanted to work with him again. You can find his comments by clicking here.
