Brock Lesnar

Following the bombshell news of Vince McMahon’s retirement, reports have emerged stating that Brock Lesnar has “left SmackDown”.

While the wrestling world recovers from the shock of Vince McMahon’s decision to retire from his duties as WWE Chairman and CEO, it appears that the news has had repercussions backstage.

Following reports that there will be a meeting backstage at SmackDown regarding the news, Bryan Alvarez has reported that Brock Lesnar left the taping.

Alvarez later reported that Lesnar implied he was leaving because of McMahon’s retirement.

In addition, Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp has noted that Brock was “pissed off.”

Brock Lesnar is due to make an appearance on SmackDown as part of the build towards his huge SummerSlam clash with Roman Reigns. The two are scheduled to meet in a Last Man Standing Match at the Biggest Party Of The Summer with the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship on the line.

The news of Vince McMahon’s departure comes just hours after it was announced that Triple H has once again been made Head of Talent relations.

John Laurinaitis, who previously held the role, was placed on “administrative leave” in June following allegations of serious misconduct. Laurinaitis was replaced on an interim basis by Bruce Prichard.
