As seen last night on RAW, WWE was still advertising the Reigns – Lesnar face off after RAW hit the air on Monday night. There’s still no official word on why Brock Lesnar did not appear on the show as advertised but it was confirmed by Dave Meltzer that the planned face off between Lesnar and Roman Reigns was in multiple scripts done on Monday.
“If it was a last minute angle change or something happened, I dont know. That’s what I know so far,” said Meltzer.
Regarding Roman’s promo and if it was a shoot, Meltzer indicated that it wasn’t and the entire promo was scripted.
“What he did in the ring was obviously scripted. The question is why did the script change? Did somebody come up with an idea?”
Meltzer explained how this is the exact same thing that happened three years ago when Brock walked out of a taping and disappeared when his contract was coming up. Vince ended up demanding that he better show up and do a show. Brock did end up doing WrestleMania that year and signed a new contract with the company.
Meltzer elaborated further how Lesnar was advertised and a confrontation between Lesnar and Reigns was in the original script for this week’s show.
“There was a confrontation in the first script, the second script. They were advertising him in the market. Granted, they do false advertising and stuff like that but if they advertised a guy like that they might have him do the speech and — the point is he would appear before the people and he didn’t appear before the people. Again, I don’t know what that means.”
Lesnar is not booked for next Monday’s RAW in Milwaukee but he is booked for Detroit in two weeks. Lesnar is also scheduled to face Kane this Saturday at the RAW live event in Chicago.
