• Brock Lesnar Has Heat For Unplanned Spots At Royal Rumble 2023
Brock Lesnar entered the Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 match at #12 and eliminated 3 men.
However, in less than 3 minutes after entering the match, he was eliminated by Bobby Lashley.
Lesnar then lost his mind and began throwing stuff around and attacking people at ringside.
According to Fightful Select, some of the spots after Lesnar’s elimination were unplanned and Lesnar might have injured a referee as well:
“There were a couple of people in the ring and ringside who weren’t prepared for the stairs spot, and didn’t know it was coming.
The spot where Brock Lesnar threw a piece of the announce table inside the ring was also unplanned.
One source said ‘we knew a freak out was planned, and it’s Brock, so expect anything and everything.’ So all seemed well there.
However, the spot that seemed to get Lesnar a bit of heat was an unplanned situation where referee Eddie Orengo was thrown over the barricade. We’re told that initially it looked like he possibly sustained a foot injury, but we’re not sure of the status of Orengo. He was supposed to be the ref that raised Cody Rhodes’ hand at the end of the match, which was changed when he had to sell to the back.
It’s worth noting that when Fightful was told about this and had it confirmed, one source said ‘heat is a relative term for Brock Lesnar’. He’s not going to get in trouble.
He’s certainly not going to be fired like Cryme Tyme was. It’s a new regime, new rules, and I’m not sure anyone involved was mad or not, but some people backstage were.”
