WWE News: Backstage Blowup at Extreme Rules from Brock Lesnar

Sunday's match at Extreme Rules between John Cena and Brock Lesnar was brutal enough with Lesnar incorporating his MMA training to add thrilling elements to their match. However, not everything went according to plan.

According to WrestlingInc.com, Cena's speech after their match was not part of the plan that Lesnar and Cena had worked out for it. Originally, the match was supposed to end with Cena being battered enough where he would have to be carried from the ring after winning the match, which would allow Lesnar to brag at a later point that he at least won the war despite losing their match in a fluke.

These developments apparently made Lesnar upset enough where he took his frustrations out on officials and the dressing room. Here are more details on the incident from WrestlingInc.com's report:

Lesnar perceived Cena as double crossing him when Cena decided to address the audience, causing Lesnar to then flip out on WWE officials. No word on how Lesnar calmed down, but the angle on Raw featuring Triple H's return was planned in advance as a way to remove Lesnar from WWE television.

How do you fellow Bleachers feel over this news on Lesnar's outburst?
