• WWE Officials High On Brock Lesnar’s New Gimmick
We have seen a new side of Brock Lesnar ever since he won the Money In The Bank contract. He’s carefree and loves to dance!
According to Slice Wrestling, WWE officials are high on Lesnar’s new “Brock Party” gimmick and think that this gimmick shows a more fan-friendly side of “The Beast” (Lesnar did the ‘serious beast’ thing for many years). WWE officials believe Lesnar has successfully re-invented himself.
Lesnar is also said to be happy with what he’s doing now as Mr. Money In The Bank and is happy he retired from MMA (again) and decided to stick with WWE.
As we noted yesterday, Paul Heyman announced that Lesnar will be cashing-in his Money In The Bank contract on Seth Rollins for a Universal Championship match on next week’s RAW.
