Following the WrestleMania 34 PPV last year, rumors began to circulate claiming Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon got into some kind of real life verbal altercation immediately after Lesnar’s Title match against Roman Reigns.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reported at the time that Lesnar came back to the Gorilla Position following his main event title match, and was irate for reasons that were not quite clear.
It was then rumored that Lesnar actually threw his title at Vince McMahon and stormed out of the Gorilla Position area and back to the locker room.
Immediately following the Royal Rumble PPV on Sunday, WWE Network aired a behind-the-scenes WWE 24 special on WrestleMania 34, and showed footage of Brock Lesnar indeed hurling his title towards Vince McMahon before storming off in what appeared to be a very agitated state. You can check out footage of the incident below.
As for why Lesnar was so upset, the details of his unhappiness remain unclear, but The Sheet report noted at the time that Lesnar might have gone off script a bit in the end of his match against Roman Reigns, but why remains unknown.
Prior to the PPV, many WWE fans believed the Lesnar vs Reigns match would receive tremendous heat from the live crowd, as fans had been very vocal in their distaste for both Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. Never one to care much about the opinion of WWE fans, Brock Lesnar might have called an audible or two towards the end of his Title match, which he won, much to the surprise of the WWE Universe.
Brock Lesnar went on to defend his Universal Title successfully at the next WWE PPV event, Greatest Royal Rumble, in a Steel Cage match against Reigns.
Given Lesnar’s eventual return to WWE and Title win at WWE Crown Jewel, it would certainly appear as if he and Vince McMahon have moved past the issues they had at WrestleMania 34. Lesnar was able to defeat Finn Balor via submission at the Royal Rumble PPV, and it looks as if The Beast will go on to defend his Title at WrestleMania 35.
