New WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has recalled Brock Lesnar’s confusion over a past segment involving 3MB. Reflecting on his time in the comedic stable during an interview with Sports Illustrated, McIntyre opened up about crossing paths with Lesnar back in 2013.
“Brock was not long back at that point from UFC. He pulled me aside, and he straight-up asked me, ‘Why are you involved in this?’” McIntyre stated. “He was so confused, but he saw something in me and believed in me. It’s pretty crazy, all these years later, I was the guy to take the title from him at WrestleMania.”

Drew McIntyre explained how Lesnar is a “man’s man.” He noted how “The Beast Incarnate” wouldn’t do business with you if he doesn’t think you’re not doing the job you should be doing. He added how Lesnar is a private person who doesn’t like really like people, but that he holds respect in high regard. “To have earned his respect means a lot.”
