Things got heated between Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman two weeks ago at the Royal Rumble during their Triple Threat Match with Kane for the Universal Championship.
As you can see in the video below, Strowman hit Lesnar with a stiff knee to his ear (which was likely unintentional)

The Beast Incarnate would respond with a stiff shot of his own, clocking Strowman with a hard punch to the side of his head.

Lesnar then said something along the lines of, “slow the f–k down.” The rest of the match appeared to go without any more incidents.
During an interview last week with the Daily Star, Strowman offered his thoughts on the incident.
“Anytime Brock and I are in the ring it’s very physical. You’re talking about two larger-than-life human beings who are fighting for dominance. Stuff happens,” Strowman said.
“It’s a contact sport – it’s not tennis. We’re not going out there to slap a ball around, we’re going out there to beat each other up. That’s what we did.”
Lesnar and Strowman had a heated confrontation backstage after the match and had to be separated by WWE officials. Lesnar then told WWE officials he would never work with Strowman again.
