Reacting to the hilarious video, he wrote,Listen. I wish people would stop posting this. I was going through a real rough patch at this point. I did a lot of crazy things and this was the topper. And after I was caught and spent a night in the slammer I knew it was time for some changes and now I’m in a good place.”

Whether it was staged or not, the incident was undeniably one of the most hilarious backstage moments ever. Times like these are also quite risky for WWE wrestlers as many wrestlers have been attacked by fans during shows. 

Nevertheless, Corcoran is a devout wrestling fan. He attends many wrestling shows sporting the same green T-shirt that earned him the nickname, The Brock Lesnar Guy. Speaking of green t-shirts, let’s talk about Superfan Smilez.
