Former WWE star Maven recently appeared on an episode of his Ask Me Anything show on his YouTube channel. In it, he discussed a number of topics, including being the first person to take an F-5 from WWE legend Brock Lesnar.

Maven said, “I happily would be the first person to ever take his legendary move, the F5. Taking the F5 [that] would be the only F5 I would take in my career. Easy, easy move to take. It was just basically a facepalm. Brock does all the work. The rotation is what makes it look so devastating. What makes it such a great move is for Brock; it’s picturesque because it shows his strength, but for the person taking it, it’s a piece of cake.”

On how the execution by Brock Lesnar doesn’t hurt:

“It didn’t hurt one bit. He threw me like I was a child. I didn’t assist him at all. Like at all. I didn’t spring off anything. That’s literally just how strong this man was. I’m happy to have a small moment in that part of history and a part of the business that would usher in a new megastar.”
