Jordan Devlin has admitted that he was “pretty starstruck” when he walked past Brock Lesnar backstage at a WWE event.

Speaking to talkSPORT host and Sportskeeda special correspondent Alex McCarthy, the NXT Cruiserweight Champion said he now works alongside two of his favorite wrestlers growing up – Triple H and Shawn Michaels – in NXT and NXT UK, so he does not have time to “fan-girl” around them.

He did, however, say that Lesnar left a big impression on him when he encountered the WWE Champion in the backstage area.

"I was pretty starstruck when I walked past Brock Lesnar backstage. He was a pretty big deal when I was a young wrestling fan – The Next Big Thing, obviously – then, so many years later you see him and he’s still at the top of the industry. It’s pretty cool. And he’s absolutely massive [laughs]."

Devlin recently opened up on various wrestling topics in an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda's Gary Cassidy. Check out some of the highlights below.
