WWE’s Brock Lesnar reportedly pulled some heat for unscheduled Royal Rumble Spot

WWE’s Royal Rumble is now in the rearview mirror and those who watched witnessed a slew of memorable moments. One such moment was during the Men’s Rumble match when Brock Lesnar was shockingly knocked out by Bobby Lashley. Lesnar was clearly furious and he went on a destructive charge around and in the ring. One of these moments reportedly drew him some heat backstage according to Conflicting selectionmost notably the moment when Lesnar threw umpire Eddie Orengo over the barricade, a move that was clearly unplanned, threw a wrench into his role later in the game and possibly resulted in an injury.

According to the report, it initially appeared that Orengo suffered a foot injury, but that was not confirmed. Orengo was also supposed to be the referee who raised Cody Rhodes’ hand at the end of the Rumble match, but that changed as Orengo had to sell Lesnar’s attack and go to the back.

This was in addition to several other moments during Lesnar’s rampage after he was knocked out. The report states that a few people in the ring and ringside were unprepared when Lesnar lifted the stairs and the moment when Lesnar threw a piece off the announce table was also unplanned. A source said that while they weren’t sure exactly what was coming, they kept their wits about them, saying, “We knew there was a freak out planned, and it’s Brock, so expect anything and everything.”

A source provided some clarification on how much “heat” Lesnar actually has, saying “heat is a relative term for Brock Lesnar. He won’t be in trouble. He certainly won’t be fired like Cryme Tyme was. It’s a new regime, new rules, and I’m not sure if those involved were crazy or not, but some people backstage were.”

The Lesnar disaster set up another big match between Lashley and Lesnar if WWE decides to pursue that, though that could also add up to one of many other storyline possibilities. Lashley took revenge on Lesnar at that point and Lesnar destroyed things outside the ring as a result. He even knocked out Baron Corbin before he could get involved in the Rumble match.

Next up for WWE is Extreme Rules, and we’ll have to wait and see how Lesnar plays in that event. In the meantime, let us know what you’d like to see from Lashley and Lesnar next, and you can always talk to me about all things wrestling on Twitter @MattAguilarCB!
