With All Elite Wrestling's debut show - Double Or Nothing - coming up this Saturday, last night was probably the worst time for WWE to pull the stunt that they did.

Seven men put their bodies on the line in one of the most dangerous matches there possibly is, and one man who didn't do any work took the spoils.

Yes, as you may have already read, Brock Lesnar made his first appearance since WrestleMania 35 and stormed in as the surprise eighth competitor to win the Money In The Bank briefcase.

As a shocked Hartford crowd didn't know whether to boo or gasp, there was seemingly some surprised at ringside, including Randy Orton who didn't look impressed.

It turns out that hardly anyone knew that Lesnar was supposed to be involved.

Mike Johnson of PW Insider reported that Lesnar was kept hidden from everyone at the event and only appeared when it was time for his brief role in the match.

Furthermore, none of the seven superstars competing in the match actually knew Lesnar was in the building, let alone that he was going to end up being in, and winning the match.

All the competitors were reportedly told was that Ali would be pushed off a ladder inside the ring towards the end of the match, and that someone would come in to intercept him and win the match.

Johnson also stated that there was word going around backstage earlier in the day that Ali was actually going to win the match, but this was merely used to keep the word away that Brock would be there.

WrestleVotes confirmed that the decision to have Lesnar become victorious was made last weekend, and before that it was a 50/50 decision between McIntyre and Ali on who would be the winner.

The talk post-WrestleMania and in the lead-up to Money In The Bank suggested that it was primed for McIntyre this year, and that big things were coming for the Scottish Psychopath.

But he will have to wait his turn once again as you'd imagine Lesnar may challenge Seth Rollins at Super ShowDown in three weeks for the Universal Championship.
