SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Last night after the Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar match, multiple sources tell PWTorch that there was a heated exchange between Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar. Our sources say McMahon was upset at the excessive blood that came (presumably) from stiff elbows (rather than blading); we are told the bleeding was not approved ahead of time and McMahon was irate. Others are skeptical or confused about McMahon’s apparent anger over the blood, only because WWE didn’t shy away from showing Reigns bleeding so heavily.
McMahon was also upset that the bump on the German announce table was not approved and the announce team was not prepared for it. Whether Reigns and Lesnar called those spots together or Lesnar did it on his own isn’t known at this point.
The crowd during the main event was not interested or invested in the match, but instead reacted with chants of “This is awful,” “boring,” “C.M. Punk,” and other chants. Santino lashed out at the fans on Twitter, which is reflective of some people’s attitude toward the WrestleMania crowd within WWE. It was “liked” by former WWE Head of Creative Brian Gewertz.
