On the podcast Spittin Chiclets, Bissonnette revealed that NHL legend Wayne Gretzky is a huge WWE fan.

“He [Gretzky] pointed him [Brock Lesnar] right out. I did a quick turn and just looked, and I didn’t recognize him right away. It’s probably because he had a cowboy hat on that was covering the top of his head.” Paul said.

He then complimented the new WWE champion and called him a great guy. “But yeah, he was a great guy. I know he’s known as a bit of a heel and he kind of has to have an a*sh*le persona as part of his character.”

“But he was the complete opposite. He exchanged numbers with me, and I got a text the next day like, ‘hey! Let’s keep in touch, man.’ I was like ‘okay. Fucking A, I’ll let you chokeslam me through a table for content. Let’s do it.'”

Paul Bissonnette reveals that he and Gretzky had drinks with Brock Lesnar.

While speaking about Brock, he unveiled that Gretzky had drinks with Lesnar after the show. Paul said, “We spent about two hours with him having drinks and shooting the s–t.”

Brock told them he thinks he can stay at the top level for another four years.

“I think he said he thinks he [Brock] can probably wrestle at a high level for three to four years, and that night, in Atlanta, he won back the belt. So he’s now the defending champion of the WWE.”
