Brock Lesnar is in the firing line from both WWE fans and the UFC audience.

Regarding the WWE, fans want The Beast to drop the Universal Championship soon so that Monday Night RAW can finally have a defending champion.


That hasn't been the case since 2017, where Kevin Owens held it last before dropping it to Goldberg.

It was thought he'd have already left by now, but WWE swerved the fans and had him retain the title against Roman Reigns at both WrestleMania 34 as well as the Greatest Royal Rumble.

Now, it's expected that he'll - probably - drop the championship at SummerSlam with The Big Dog and Bobby Lashley possible opponents.

Despite being one of the biggest draws in UFC history, fans aren't too pleased with Lesnar returning to the Octagon and getting an immediate heavyweight title fight against Daniel Cormier.

Lesnar was in attendance at UFC 226 - something WWE acknowledged at the time - where he shoved lifelong WWE fan and two-weight world champion Cormier.


Since then, fans have been speculating that WWE could use Cormier to help get the title off Lesnar, but that remains to be seen.

Although all of the attention fell on Lesnar that weekend, Monday Night RAW commentator Jonathan Coachman has revealed that he was far from happy with what went down.


Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Coach claimed that he wasn't happy his face-off with Cormier became a WWE-style promo.

Instead, Lesnar reportedly wanted to keep a fine line before the WWE style and real life, which fans saw right through after their antics in the Octagon.


According to NoDQ, he said: "This is a true story before we get too far away from it.

“I kinda say this not to take a dig at people who say ‘I’ve got these rumours, I got these real stories.’ I got this from a direct source, this is 100% fact.


“When Brock Lesnar came into the Octagon and he shoved Daniel Cormier, I said to my source who I was talking to - who was there and was backstage. I said, ‘Man [Lesnar and Cormier] had to have talked about that. They had to have.’

“He was like, ‘[Lesnar] was so p****d because Cormier made it so WWE.’ Brock was so mad that he did it that way. That shove was real, it wasn’t planned, it wasn’t talked about. Him [Lesnar] coming in [the cage] was, but the shove that everyone says was so WWE - Brock didn’t want it that way. Brock wanted it just on that fine line.’”

Unfortunately for Lesnar, calls of 'fake' have been dominating the headlines.

Whether he likes it or not, he'll have to live with the fact that it now looks like forced manufactured drama.
