Brock Lesnar Walks Out Of WWE RAW

The big news coming out of Monday Night RAW was not a dull kickoff to WrestleMania. The big story was Brock Lesnar and where he was. Lesnar walked out of RAW and a new report indicates that there could be trouble in paradise.

It was a strange Monday for Lesnar and the WWE. Earlier in the day WWE.com promoted that Brock would be appearing on RAW. Yet by the end of the broadcast there was no Brock and people were talking. Dave Meltzer reported on his podcast that Brock walked out but could not provide details. Well some details have now emerged.

Mike Johnson over at PWInsider.com has the scoop. According to Mike, Brock did indeed walk out. Mike reports that the disagreement was not over anything related to creative. Mike reports that the disagreement was simply over business between the two parties. Mike did not have much more to it other than that Vince McMahon confirmed the blow up the following day at SmackDown.

Ironically this comes only a few days after news broke that Brock was leaning towards staying with the WWE. Meltzer reported in his Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Lesnar was hesitant to return to MMA over concussion concerns and Brock was leaning towards re-signing with the WWE. I do not think any of this is a coincidence whatsoever.

Brock’s behavior has always been a concern by WWE officials. Many believe that John Cena was booked to go over Lesnar in Lesnar’s debut simply because the company was unsure whether Brock would be around long enough to return the favor. That said, there has only been one reported blow up between Brock and the WWE and that was over Cena’s promo after their Extreme Rules match. Other than that, most have painted a rosy picture of Brock and Vince’s relationship.

Meltzer also reported on his podcast that the WrestleMania 31 main-event is not in jeopardy. Brock is under contract and is expected to fulfill all of his obligations. That said, Brock never returned to NJPW to drop the IWGP title but those were different circumstances. Whether the match is in jeopardy or not, there has to be people worried in the company when the headliner walks out a month before the big show.

As for Brock’s future post-Mania, I wouldn’t be too worried. These two parties survived a nasty lawsuit and continue to do business together. Brock had a similar reputation when dealing with the UFC and Dana White would take him back in a heartbeat. I expect things to be smoothed out but until then, I’d be slightly worried if I were Vince McMahon.
