Many are speculating that Brock Lesnar may have been delivering legitimate punches to Braun Strowman’s head during the WWE Universal Title match at Sunday’s Royal Rumble event.

The incident occurred after Braun connected a stiff knee to Brock’s head. Brock immediately got up and connected with some blows that many are saying were real. The audio feed had to be silenced multiple times after it seemed like the two were taking shoot punches at each other.

You can see footage from the incident below:


Update: Taz discussed the topic on his podcast today and confirmed that the angle was a worked shoot.

What do you guys think of the angle? Should WWE be doing spots like this? Does it make the product more interesting? Sound off in the comment section below…
