It was previously reported that Brock Lesnar walked out of the building after he heard the news of Vince McMahon’s departure. WWE could make overtures to Goldberg to wrestle as Lesnar’s replacement at SummerSlam. Either way, Lesnar was pissed about McMahon retiring.

Lesnar has already been removed from SmackDown mentions for this week. The Beast was set to square off against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam.

Tonight’s edition of SmackDown is definitely the one to look forward. Stephanie McMahon last appeared on WWE TV at WrestleMania 38 where she endorsed Gable Steveson.
