It’s still not clear what happened backstage at WrestleMania that caused Vince McMahon to get angry or what caused Brock Lesnar to throw the Universal title in McMahon’s direction (it ended up hitting the wall).
All we know is that words were exchanged between Lesnar and McMahon. It could have been a work but nobody is has gone on record with anything so it’s all speculation at this point. The story being told backstage is that McMahon was not aware or expecting Lesnar to blow up at him and it was obvious that Shane McMahon was not expecting it.
Lesnar and Paul Heyman continued walking to the back and they were driven off in their SUV. Shane was said to be furious at what was a perceived attempt to intimidate his father so he went after them but they were already gone and there was no confrontation. The belief is that Lesnar didn’t know that Shane was looking for him until he was told much later on after he was gone.
If the blow-up backstage was real, it’s unlikely that Lesnar would get reprimanded because there seem to be a different set of rules for him than most of the other Superstars. Again, as I said earlier, it will be interesting to see what takes place at The Greatest Royal Rumble.
