In a recent interview with Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT, WWE 24/7 Champion R-Truth revealed that his WWE RAW segment with Brock Lesnar just days before the 2020 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view was a rib on Lesnar from WWE officials in order to try and get Lesnar to break character and start laughing, which worked.

“Paul is like, well we have a bet going on, we don’t want Brock to know what you’re about to say, we just want you to make Brock laugh. I said huh and he said Truth, you’re a funny guy and we have a bet on that you won’t be able to make Brock laugh, I think you can, but they don’t think you can so just win it, we’re just going to wing it out there.

I said Paul, come on and he said, the only think you’ve got to say is that you’re going to throw him over the top rope, we’re going to wing it out there and you’re going to try and make Brock laugh. I did all I could to hold myself from laughing when I saw Brock had bust out laughing because of Paul Heyman’s facial expression.”
