WWE fans left furious after Brock Lesnar no-show

Published 24 Comments

WWE fans were left furious on Monday Night Raw after Brock Lesnar failed to show up yet again on WWE's flagship programme.

Though the WWE Universe love Brock Lesnar for his awesome performances in the ring, fans are becoming tired with his constant no-shows.

Obviously contractually, the WWE can only book Brock Lesnar infrequently, and so most of the time fans are just left disappointed by the fact that he hasn't been on Raw for some time.

Mass confusion

But on Monday night it was totally different. WWE had advertised Lesnar for Raw well in advance, with the expectation being that the Heavyweight Champion would be present to talk up his match with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania XXXI.

24 hours after the Fastlane pay-per-view ended with a big win for Reigns, Lesnar's promoter Paul Heyman was on Raw to talk up the Lesnar vs Reigns Mania match. But Lesnar wasn't by his side, and fans in the arena were bitterly disappointed when Heyman left without an appearance from Brock.

What does this mean?

Reports from wrestling expert Dave Meltzer have now revealed that an issue backstage prevented Lesnar from appearing on Raw, with this controversy currently on-going and likely to provide some quite interesting headlines in the next 24 hours.

“The story is ongoing and still in progress,” Meltzer explained on the latest edition of Wrestler Observer Radio. “I don’t think anyone wants it out until whatever it is is settled. But something happened, but what that is, I do not know.”

As nobody at the time of writing outside the WWE knows what went on backstage to stop Brock Lesnar appearing on Raw, it's impossible to speculate the ramifications for Lesnar's character going forward. For WWE's sake, let's hope it doesn't damage the build-up to WrestleMania XXXI.

So what do you think WWE fans? Are Brock Lesnar's constant no-shows frustrating and does it damage the WWE? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
