WWE star and former UFC champion Brock Lesnar has been accused of sexual harassment by ex-wrestling diva Terri Runnels.

It comes just days after fellow professional wrestler Sammy Guevara was suspended by the WWE for comments he made about colleague Sasha Banks where he said he ‘wanted to rape her’.

And now Lesnar is in the spotlight for allegedly exposing himself to Runnels backstage.

Speaking on the KEE On Sports Podcast, she said: "I don’t have a lot of respect for Brock, I don’t think Brock respects wrestling fans.

"Brock did something that if it was in today’s day and time...You know.

"He showed his penis to me and called my name as I was walking past where he was in the dressing room and opened his towel so I could see his manly bits.

"I would have much rather him not be so disrespectful of a female that’s been in this business for as long as I have been.

"He knew he was gonna have a lot of power, that they were gonna give him the strap but at that point, I’d been in this business a long time.

"I have respect and what he did was very very wrong. From a respect standpoint, from a sexual harassment standpoint, it was wrong."

Runnels initially made the accusation in 2004, but has now aired the incident again - the latest allegation made by a female wrestler as part of the #SpeakOut movement.

WWE said in a statement: "We take any allegation of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter."
