Former WWE Superstar, Chris Jericho recently sat down with the Geordie Podcast and recalled a confrontation between himself and Brock Lesnar.

The showdown took place following Lesnar’s match with Randy Orton at the 2015 Summer Slam event.

Jericho took exception with the excess physicality on behalf of Lesnar.

“He was doing a match with Randy Orton and he was, basically, butchering him with elbows to the head. I didn’t know if it was planned or not and nobody would tell me if it was planned or not. Wrestling is a hard-hitting sport, but elbows to the side of the head can kill you..”


Jericho confronted Lesnar backstage following the match.

According to Jericho, Lesnar laughed off the issue, threatened Jericho and allegedly used homophobic slurs.

WWE owner, Vince McMahon broke up the scuffle, telling Jericho that it was McMahon himself that gave the green light to Lesnar to be extra brutal in the match and that Randy Orton was in on the deal.


Jericho decided to drop the issue, but held steadfast to his take on himself versus Brock saying:

“Had it gotten to the next step, I swear to God, I would have bitten his nose off. You can crush my face, but I’ll bite your nose off.”
