Brock Lesnar Turns Down Match Against Shane McMahon

Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that the original plan was for Brock Lesnar to face Shane McMahon at this year’s WrestleMania 33 event.

Plans for that match went out the window once Bill Goldberg signed a new contract and decided to stick around through WrestleMania. Meltzer also claimed that Lesnar didn’t even want to do the match with Shane and tried to get himself out of it, noting that Lesnar “certainly didn’t want to do” it.

The start for the Lesnar vs. Shane feud was kicked off at SummerSlam when McMahon entered the ring to calm Lesnar down and received an F-5 for his troubles.
