• Hall Of Famer Comments On WWE Wrestlers Not Being Happy About Brock Lesnar Winning MITB
There are a lot of reports going on regarding WWE wrestlers not being happy about Brock Lesnar winning the Men’s Money In The Bank 2019 ladder match and that only Ali knew Lesnar was winning the match, not anyone else.
WWE Hall of Famer X-Pac addressed this situation on his podcast and said the following:
“I would not blame anyone in that match for being pi$$ed off. That they had no idea [regarding the finish] if that’s true. You put this match together and you’re out there risking your neck, you’re doing all this sh*t, you got this finish you think is [gonna happen].
Trust me, when you’re a wrestler and you do this, when you’re a pro wrestler and you’re in a match, this is like your canvas that you are painting your masterpiece on. You’re trying for a masterpiece every time you go out there. You’re trying for a Mona Lisa…and you’re just about finished and all of a sudden you have no idea and this guy comes out and just paints a mustache on the Mona Lisa.”
On the other hand, X-Pac said the following regarding Bayley’s big win at Money In The Bank 2019:
“It caught me off guard, and that’s the thing, that’s good. When you catch me off guard, that’s a great thing. Because if you caught me off guard I am pretty sure you caught everyone off guard. Those are the types of things that make wrestling great, like when you get those ‘Holy sh*t, oh f*** [chants].’ I was happy for Bayley because there’s been some struggles concerning how she’s been used… and [it was] well deserved.”
