#5 Former AEW World Champion talks about his backstage altercation with Brock Lesnar

Chris Jericho and Brock Lesnar had a backstage altercation after SummerSlam 2016. Lesnar faced Randy Orton in the main event of the pay-per-view and busted The Viper open with a barrage of elbows, which resulted in a stoppage.

Jericho was unaware of the planned finish and rushed to confront The Beast Incarnate following the match. The Demo God brought up this story during an interview with Sports Illustrated when he was talking about his run-ins with various MMA fighters and his current feud in AEW with American Top Team:
