Ariel Helwani Speaks on Whether Lesnar/Taker Was Staged

Nick Paglino

Ariel Helwani of, who conducted the UFC 121 interview with The Undertaker in which he had a "confrontation" with Brock Lesnar, posted the following on his Twitter account:

"Just want to note that if anyone thinks I was in on some kind of angle last night, they are HIGHLY mistaken. Seriously now.

haven’t watched WWE in a couple years, don’t know about storylines. All we were doing was intv. som1 who I thought was there 2 support Brock

I am still confused by it, to be honest. Nothing was planned in advance and I would NEVER, EVER be a part of something like that.

Anyhow, as far as I know, the whole thing was genuine. Same as when we talked to the guys after 116, The Rock, Booker etc."
