According to PWInsider, via WrestlingInc, there was an incident involving Brock Lesnar after Extreme Rules this past Sunday Night.
There was a huge backstage blow-up involving Brock Lesnar following Sunday's WWE Extreme Rules PPV, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.
Reports claim that the original plan was for Cena to be so beaten that he would have to be carried out of the building, despite winning the match. This would of left it open for Lesnar to brag that while he had lost the match by fluke, he won the war.
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.
Brock Lesnar's current deal with WWE only requires him to work two dates minimum, according to sources within the company.
PWInsider is known to be a credible source for WWE news, so if this is indeed accurate, it's a very interesting situation. Vince McMahon has invested a lot of money in Brock Lesnar, and should do his best to keep him happy.
I too, was very surprised that Cena did that promo after the match. I was even more surprised he won the match in the first place.
The original plan of Cena leaving on a stretcher would have made more sense. That way, it would have really got the point across—that even though Cena won the match, Brock inflicted enough damage to him to the point that he couldn't walk out on his own.
Brock would come off looking stronger that way, Cena could have had the glory of getting the victory, and we could all look forward to a return match at some point.
To make matters worse, aside from his arm in a sling, Cena was all smiles on Raw. Not a great way to sell what was supposed to be a "horrific beating" the night before.
It will be interesting to see what comes out of this. As it looks right now, Brock's next match will be against Triple H, but it doesn't sound as if his return to WWE is off to a good start.
