Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE went through a lot to hide Brock Lesnar from the Jacksonville crowd. This was important to help pull off his big surprise after the Beast Incarnate showed up at ringside.
It seems that WWE was able to find two stagehands who are large enough to flank Brock Lesnar and hide him. All of this went into pulling off a surprise appearance for the live crowd.
Brock Lesnar was disguised with two other rather large stagehands to get him ringside for the spot. They pushed a trunk ringside to hide him.
WWE already considered their RAW in Jacksonville a “no-win” situation. After all, fans in Florida didn’t give them anywhere near the reaction that they received in Puerto Rico. That being said, the crowd needed a bit of help this week, because the company also piped in crowd reactions.
We will have to see what’s next for Brock Lesnar. You never know when he could pop up next. At least we know that Lesnar will be at Night of Champions on May 27th in Saudi Arabia, because he has a fight against Cody Rhodes in store for him.
