• Shane McMahon Wanted To Fight Brock Lesnar After WrestleMania Controversy

In the main event of WrestleMania 34 in 2018, Brock Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns to retain the Universal Championship.

The fans were left shocked, as word was going on that Lesnar was leaving for the UFC and his contract was going to end on that night, so people expected Reigns to win the Title.

When Lesnar got backstage, he threw the Title at Vince McMahon because he wasn’t happy with the crowd reaction. This was even shown during the WWE 24 documentary.

Road Dogg was sitting right next to Vince when this happened. On his podcast, Road Dogg revealed that Shane McMahon wanted to fight Lesnar over this.

Below is what the DX member said:

“I don’t really know (why Brock Lesnar was upset after the WrestleMania 34 main event). I honestly don’t. What I remember of that is I almost got hit by the title.

[The WWE 24 documentary] showed he threw the title across me to Vince and everybody kind of stood up like, what the crap was that? And so, I don’t know.

I didn’t really know what went down then, and I wasn’t about to go after Brock to find out. I remember Shane (McMahon) being in Gorilla and being hot and trying to go after Brock and I said, ‘Hey, let’s let it go, let it go. Let’s just stay right here and all keep our teeth.’

So he was aiming for Vince (Road Dogg laughed) and he’s a good aim. He’s got a good aim, good throw, he had a good rotation on the title. But one of those straps almost caught me right in the mug.

He aimed it to Vince. He didn’t aim it at him, you know what I mean? It landed in front of him. It was safe. He could’ve hit all of us if he wanted to. I actually didn’t know if it was a work or not because nobody said a word and nobody did anything.

Sometimes they would do things and then laugh with each other later and stuff and then you go like, oh, I almost got killed in the crossfire there. I don’t appreciate that. So you don’t know, I don’t know. I do remember Shane was hot and wanted to go and I was like, ‘Ah.’ So he ended up going so maybe he knew something I didn’t know.”
