Shelton Benjamin remembered a training session where he grabbed Brock Lesnar’s leg and the current WWE champion ran across the room with one leg while trying to get out of the grip. From then on, the two joined OVW which was a predecessor of WWE NXT.  Shelton Benjamin said that he and Brock Lesnar got to know each other more in the OVW days as they spent more time with each other. He said Brock Lesnar used to spend more time in the gym and used to keep to himself.

“When I met Brock, instantly I liked the guy. He was just a big fun-loving dude,” said Shelton Benjamin.
