New WWE Champion Drew McIntyre recently spoke with Sports Illustrated and revealed what Brock Lesnar said to him after their first meeting back in April 2013, shortly after Lesnar destroyed 3MB (McIntyre, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal) on RAW.
Drew, who just won the title from Brock at WrestleMania 36, recalled how Lesnar asked to speak with him after the angle on RAW.
“I remember it well,” said McIntyre. “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?’ 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.”
McIntyre talked more about Brock working with him and how important respect is, and his privacy.
“Brock is a man’s man,” said McIntyre. “He won’t do business with you if he thinks you’re not doing the job you should be doing. Brock is a very private person, he doesn’t like people too much, but he’s all about respect. To have earned his respect means a lot.”
