The former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is one of the most vicious athletes in the pro wrestling industry. Former WWE trainer Rip Rogers recently revealed an incident when ‘The Beast Incarnate’ had once assaulted a fellow wrestler.
Rip Rogers details the incident involving Brock Lesnar
Lesnar was trained by Rogers in WWE’s former developmental system Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), between 2000 and 2002. OVW boasted several future main-eventers at the time, including Batista, John Cena, and Randy Orton. Another lesser-known wrestler, Vivacious Charles, was also part of the roster. Rogers claimed that Lesnar had “backhanded” a fellow wrestler after being on the receiving end of a locker room joke.
On Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw, Rogers revealed what happened when Charles attempted to joke around with The Beast Incarnate:
“This guy named Vivacious Charles just ribbed [pranked] Brock about something. Brock just stood up and backhanded him. Boom. Charles was on the ground about ready to cry. His jaw’s broke.”
Locker room “ribbing” is no secret in the wrestling business and it has been there for decades. While many wrestlers enjoy playing pranks behind the scenes, others get frustrated when certain jokes go too far. Rip Rogers did not disclose what Vivacious Charles did to upset Brock Lesnar. However, he realized after the incident that The Beast Incarnate was not the right person to mess around with backstage:
“I said, ‘Brock, he’s just ribbing you,'” Rogers continued. “He goes, ‘What’s that?’ I said, ‘Oh God.’ I wasn’t gonna ruffle his feathers, oh hell no!”
Speaking about assaults, Lesnar made his huge return on the latest edition of Monday Night RAW. He went after Bobby Lashley and laid him down with multiple F-5s. WWE has Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia coming up and it seems the direction for that show is to have a match between Lesnar and Lashley. ‘The All Mighty’ dropped the WWE United States Championship against Seth Rollins following the vicious attack by Lesnar.
