IRL Discussion: Brock Stiffing BRAUN

Had a conversation with a friend about moments where "it got real" in the ring, and decided I'd share it here.

It was this glorious moment where a frustrated Brock Lesnar tagged BRAUN STROWMAN at Royal Rumble 2018.



This video isn't as clear, but has a bunch of replays and it also rules. That led us to a discussion about one of my favorite moments like this in a Harley Race/Nick Bockwinkel v Stan Hansen/Bruiser Brody tag match.

A poster on WCMB named Grobbit recaps it, and I seem to remember a telling of the story where Race said something to Brody like, "If you want to get rough, we can get rough."
