He said, 'damn. He looks like a Viking," Metro quoted him as saying in the interview.
'It was the first time Vince McMahon physically laid eyes on Brock Lesnar. 'You're not going to hear that in a lot of places. Brock came to the event. We were recruiting him. Jerry Brisco was recruiting him heavily," he added.
