Brock Lesnar appeared on WWE TV for the first time last night since he defended his Universal Championship against Roman Reigns back at The Greatest Royal Rumble in April, and the former UFC Champion definitely made a statement.
Lesnar was happy to stay backstage in The American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida, but after Kurt Angle gave Paul Heyman an ultimatum, which involved his contract being terminated, The Advocate for The Beast Incarnate was forced to pressure Lesnar into appearing in front of the live crowd.
Lesnar made it clear that he and Heyman are not friends when his advocate asked him to appear as a favor for him and after becoming physical with Heyman backstage, Brock finally made his way to the ring where he F5’d General Manager Kurt Angle before turning his attention to Heyman.
This wasn’t the only carnage left in his wake either, since Lesnar later put his hands on backstage interviewer Mike Rome on his way out of the arena when he tried to stop the Champion to ask a few questions, in what was a night filled with tension for the Universal Champion.
The good news is that according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer, Paul Heyman wasn’t actually fired from the show as part of the segment, since Lesnar did actually appear and he will be by his client’s side when The Universal Champion returns to Monday Night Raw on August 13th. Interestingly, this is the go-home episode of Raw ahead of SummerSlam, where Lesnar faces Roman Reigns for the third time this year for his converted Championship.
Will The Beast Incarnate create more carnage when he makes his return in just two weeks time?
