Brock Lesnar surprised the world when he turned on Cody Rhodes during the RAW after WrestleMania. This storyline has Vince McMahon’s fingerprints all over it, and it should, because McMahon just took over WWE creative again. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes.

Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE made plans for that shocking Brock Lesnar angle a while ago. That being said, Brock Lesnar is sticking around WWE to work this program.

Brock Lesnar is sticking around in WWE, and is working a program with Cody Rhodes.

Fightful Select reported this week that while there were some adjustments to Cody Rhodes’ WWE Raw plans, this was not one of them. Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes were not only scheduled to start a program before Vince McMahon, but it was planned well before that.


It was also noted that, “sources familiar with the situation say that Brock Lesnar was aware of his creative plans for after WrestleMania nearly a month ahead of time.” He likes to play everything close to the vest, so telling people backstage in WWE that he was “finishing up” was just him working.

The report went on to say that they can’t comment on the fact that all of WWE creative knew what was going to happen. Brock Lesnar’s history with WWE is unique, and his angles are often treated special, with only a select number of people knowing what is going on.

That being said, there were hints of a heel turn in his presentation based on those the outlet spoke to. We’ll have to see where this progresses from here.

Brock Lesnar is now a heel, and he’s heading toward WrestleMania Backlash, likely in a match against Cody Rhodes. We’ll keep a close eye on Brock Lesnar’s situation, and everything that follows, right here at Ringside News.
