According to pro-wrestling blog The Wrestling Observer, former UFC champion Lesnar got into fisticuffs at a backstage rehearsal for a WWE â€˜SummerSlamâ€™ event. He and another pro-wrestler were working through a routine when things went awry.
"Lesnar left the building after getting into a physical altercation with fellow WWE superstar, Ryan Reeves, known in ring as Ryback.
Not much information is being let out, but the source says Lesnar was in the arena early to rehearse a major angle with SummerSlam opponent Triple H. Before things even began, Reeves, who was also in the building, got into a heated argument with Lesnar. It is uncertain what the argument was about.
Reeves put his hands on Lesnar, though the source tells us that people who witnessed it said Reeves was going to apologize. Lesnar shoved Reeves back and a shoving match ensued. Lesnar threw Reeves to the floor and hit him in the face three times before being pulled off.
Reeves suffered a laceration above his left eyebrow which is required stitches. â€œRybackâ€ will not be competing tonight as he was originally planned. Lesnar left the building immediately, and all efforts to reach him have failed.â€
There has been no comment from the WWE or Lesnar on the alleged incident. If it did happen as reported it could be enough to end Lesnarâ€™s contract with the company but he is a valuable asset and thus it is more likely to be swept under the carpet".
This was from August 6, 2012. It seems that Ryback's "red" eye he's recently been shown with is a small reminder for him to NOT piss off Lesnar. What a feud or storyline this could make. It's something that WWE creative can use to their advantage in the future for a decent feud instead of these squash matches Ryback's always in.
What do you think of this? Would Ryback vs. Lesnar be a good feud with a good build if WWE used this altercation as an angle for a storyline?
I think it has great potential and could make for some really good matches.
