If you have watched Monday Night Raw from last night, you will know that the Paul Heyman/Brock Lesnar segment didn't go exactly to plan.

It's going to be one of the biggest matches in WWE's recent history as Goldberg and Lesnar share the squared circle once again for just the second time, but as things stand, the buildup hasn't gone exactly to plan.

The main issue from last night? Well, the heel in the feud was cheered, and the fans in attendance were chanting 'Goldberg sucks' throughout, who is meant to be the face in the match.

That is something WWE really don't want. They want Lesnar to be the heel of the feud and they want Goldberg to be the face, but during last night's Raw, it was roles reversed.

When the challenge was initially set by Heyman on Lesnar's behalf, the fans responded to it positively, and they also responded positively to Goldberg's return to Raw last week, but then this past week it all went sour.

It was easy to notice that the promo wasn't going as planned, and according to Wrestling Observer Radio, Vince McMahon took action.

Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that McMahon was fuming with the segment backstage and "blew a gasket" due to the fans' reaction to Lesnar, Heyman, and Goldberg.

In fact, McMahon was so unhappy he decided to cut the segment short and did so by playing Lesnar's music earlier than anticipated.

It's been noted that the segment was meant to last longer, but due to the reaction they were getting, McMahon pulled the plug halfway through.

Not how WWE would have imagined it going.
