Here’s a tip you can have free of charge: when engaged in a mock-fight with Brock Lesnar, don’t knee him in the face.
Ideally, I would’ve shared this advice with Braun Strowman last night prior to his match at WWE’s annual Royal Rumble PPV, but I already had other commitments. He learnt the hard way.
Literally. Brock Lesnar straight up clocked Strowman in glorious HD in front of thousands watching and millions more at home.

BOSH. There’s no getting around that. No complimentary camera angles, no stamping of the feet. Lesnar got kneed in the face and then retaliated with a legitimate punch.
The rest of the match wasn’t so hunky dory either, with Lesnar putting Strowman through the announcers table.
The social media reactions were apt. One said, ‘I don’t know about you but I still wouldn’t wanna take any punch from Brock Lesnar. If he slapped me I’d be knocked out.’
Remember that time Braun Strowman accidentally stiffed Brock Lesnar? Yeah, neither does Braun. https://t.co/xBMtUfs4Qv

Screw @BrockLesnar for that temple shot. Big roided out monkey throws a fit every time something doesn't go his way, even though he's the stiffest wrestler on the main roster (even @JinderMahal outwrestles you). Can't wait for his contract to finally be up. #royalrumble2018

Braun must be one tough motherfucker to take a legit punch from a clearly pissed off Brock Lesnar. If I took that punch my brain would’ve turned to a fine pink mist. pic.twitter.com/BtIoFHeVE2

He put everything into that punch though and fair play to Braun he took it like a champ.

Another praised Strowman, saying ‘He put everything into that punch though and fair play to Braun he took it like a champ.’
That he did, that he did. I doubt he’ll ever put himself in that situation ever again, mind you.
Just a few years ago, Lesnar appeared on Stone Cold Steve Austin’s WWE podcast where he revealed he doesn’t like humans.
I really don’t like people. I’m sorry, I don’t. I just don’t like being around a bunch of people, and it’s kinda ironic cause I can go out in an arena in front of 20,000 people and be alright with it, and only because I feel like I’m sheltered, like I’m in this dome. Like I’m protected.
But you get me out in public and I just don’t do well. It’s not a phobia, it’s just who I am. It’s why I live out in the middle of nowhere. It’s why I have an 8ft fence around my property. I shut the gate when I come and go, that’s just who I am.
Following his victory over Strowman and Kane Sunday night, Lesnar will defend his Universal Championship at Wrestlemania.
