Brock Lesnar closed out WWE RAW this week by destroying Cody Rhodes for multiple minutes inside and outside the ring. That was not the reason they were in the ring, because the two were supposed to tag with each other against Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa. In the end, Roman didn’t have to compete on free television, and Brock Lesnar turned heel.

Ringside News reached out to ask about Brock Lesnar’s heel turn. After all, the timing of when that call was made is crucial to determining who made the decision. It was previously reported that the decision for Lesnar to “team” with Cody Rhodes and turn on him in that way was decided on the day of the show.

We were told that Brock Lesnar’s heel turn was decided “at least a month before WrestleMania.” At that time, a few members of the creative team “were given the heads-up about Brock’s turn happening the day after WrestleMania.” So, they were not all in the dark about that one.


We will have to see what happens for Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar as this story continues. Brock Lesnar has a lot of fun as a babyface, but he is also a very dangerous heel.

Brock Lesnar was telling people backstage in WWE that he was “finishing up” with the company. After that angle this week, it is more than apparent that he is sticking around.

A lot of things are changing around WWE, with Vince McMahon taking control of WWE RAW this week in savage fashion. At least we know that Brock Lesnar’s heel turn was all part of the plan for a while now.
