• Backstage Reaction To Brock Lesnar’s Surprise Return On SmackDown

WWE is getting good at keeping returns a surprise. Not only did WWE officials managed to keep Luke Harper & Rusev’s return a surprise backstage, but they also managed to shock their backstage staff with Brock Lesnar’s return on SmackDown.

Below is what Mike Johnson of PWInsider said regarding Brock’s surprise return:

“They hid Heyman and Brock. You know Heyman wasn’t around the show. You know they kept him hidden. Heyman wasn’t helping people with promos, bouncing ideas off of others — Heyman was nowhere to be seen.

In fact, you know there were people who were shocked when he showed up in Gorilla Position because they assumed that he had left and gone home.”

WWE is doing a great job in keeping returns a surprise and not letting this information get leaked prior to the show.
