The friendship between Shelton Benjamin and Brock Lesnar is something WWE has referenced several times, and Benjamin recently discussed it.
Speaking on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory Podcast, Benjamin opened up about how he started becoming friends with Brock Lesnar.
“When we first came to Louisville, [to train at OVW]we lived together,” Benjamin noted. “When I met Brock, I instantly liked the guy. He was a big, fun, loving dude. He’s the guy that if he likes you, he will give you the shirt off his back. If he doesn’t like you, well, you’ll know.”
Benjamin also spoke about their friendship to this day, admitting they’re still close.
“We’re pretty good friends. I feel like our career paths have split us a bit,” Benjamin informed. “He’s doing his thing, and he’s doing very well at it, and I need to focus on me. I need to do me.”
