It's not exactly news that Brock Lesnar is a terrifying bloke. Even if you've never seen the former UFC and WWE champion perform, you can surmise just from looking at him that he's the type of person who enjoys nothing more than punching people in the head and laughing about it afterwards like a giddy, rhino sized psychopath.
There are plenty of stories about Lesnar's fighting prowess, whether it's performances inside a WWE ring or UFC octagon that have been seen around the world (hello Frank Mir and Randy Orton) or tales that are told in hushed tones, like the time he and 'Mr.Perfect' Curt Hennig decided it'd be a laugh to try a spot of amateur wrestling while 30,000 feet in the air on board a aeroplane, where they crashed into the emergency exit door and caused everyone else on board to collectively shit their trousers. However, we may have a new favourite Lesnar tale, courtesy of The Big Show.
Would you flash a camera in this bloke's face? Nah, me neither (Image credit: PA Images)
'The World's Largest Athlete' sat down with TheSPORTbible ahead of the WWE's live event at the O2 arena in London, last week and reminisced about the time that the four time WWE and former UFC Heavyweight Champion terrified a group of 300 people at an airport in Australia.
"Have you ever seen anyone make an entire crowd flinch? He'd just come off a gate in Australia and he's got his sunglasses on and right away they're running towards the gate, where there's this little rope.
There's around 300 people there. All the flashes go off on the cameras and Brock just takes his sunglasses off and gives that stare that says he wants to peel your skin off and eat your liver. Then he does the shoulder movement where he flinches back and I saw 300 people gasp and take a step back!
They were terrified! I started laughing, I almost pissed myself. Then Brock turns round and says 'what are you laughing at?' and I told him 'You just made 300 people flinch! I don't think I've ever seen that happen! You're 30 feet away and you've made them flinch just by flexing your shoulders towards them. That's insane!'"
I bet Randy Orton wishes he'd been 30 feet away from Brock at SummerSlam, instead of trapped beneath his boulder like elbows.
