Bruce Prichard Discusses Brock Lesnar Breaking His Nose

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar may be ‘The Beast Incarnate’ in the ring, but is also seemingly formidable backstage as Bruce Prichard has recalled for the former World Champion inadvertently broke his nose.

As well as reaching the top of the mountain in the UFC, Brock Lesnar has carved out an incomparable path for himself in the wrestling world, often defeating his opponents in short order or dominating large portions of his contests.

However, in a discussion on his Something To Wrestle podcast, Bruce Prichard has explained one time where Lesnar accidently proved to be able to cause pain even when he was backstage. Explaining a picture of himself sporting a black eye, the WWE executive explained how it came from an incident where ‘The Beast Incarnate’ tried to move a wall backstage and ended up breaking his nose.

The folks that had constructed the wall hadn’t constructed it very well, and Brock didn’t feel like waiting. He started moving walls on his own. When he did, that said wall came crashing into my face.

I get on a plane, fly to New York, didn’t have any issues. I might have tried to blow my nose. Everything shot out then, my orbital completely exploded and my nose pretty much caved in.

He didn’t mean to do it. It was an accident. He still called to check on me and sent me nice things.
