How WWE kept Brock Lesnar shock Extreme Rules return a secret before Seth Rollins cash-in


Lesnar shocked the WWE Universe when he finally cashed in his Money in the Bank contract on Seth Rollins at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and regained the Universal Championship.

But it seems like Vince McMahon’s promotion wanted to keep the plans under wraps at all costs and didn’t want to risk that ending getting leaked to the fans.

That is why the wrestling giants kept Lesnar quiet backstage before the WinnersTake All Extreme Rules Mixed Tag Team Match came to an end, according to wrestling reporter Brad Shepard.

Shepard tweeted before the main event: “According to a source in #WWE, Brock Lesnar is backstage (staying quietly in a room).

“I don’t know anything with certainty beyond that so I won’t speculate. #WWE #ExtremeRules.”

WWE though did tease a possible cash-in before and during the show as Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman riled up the WWE Universe.

But many weren’t convinced as there had been many false alarms in the last two months, which saw Heyman continually promising that his client would cash in almost immediately after his Money in the Bank win last May.

The Beast made his way to the ring after Rollins and RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch successfully defended their titles against Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans.

The Conqueror quickly put the former Universal Champion down with a thunderous German Suplex and then finished him with a devastating F5.

WWE have pulled off many shockers involving the UFC legend ever since he returned to the company in 2012.

Their most recent swerve before Extreme Rules took place at Money in the Bank.

That was when the ex-UFC Heavyweight Champion added himself late into the annual Men’s Ladder Match and won the coveted briefcase.

The seven-time world champion took Sami Zayn’s place and defeated the likes of Ali, Andrade, Corbin, Drew McIntyre, Finn Balor, Randy Orton and Ricochet.

Lesnar’s next appearance is currently unknown as he will continue his controversial part-time schedule.
