#5 Brock Lesnar throws a tantrum following John Cena loss
On the RAW after WrestleMania 28 in 2012, Brock Lesnar made his long-awaited return to WWE after eight long years. Lesnar attacked John Cena immediately upon arrival and hit a thunderous F5 on him.
The two megastars feuded for the next few weeks, culminating in an Extreme Rules match at the namesake PPV. Cena was mauled by Lesnar at the PPV but somehow managed to put The Beast down and win the match.
After the match, Cena didn't sell the punishment that he received at the hands of Lesnar and cut a heartfelt promo for the live crowd, stating that he will be going home for a vacation. Cena was originally supposed to be stretchered out after the contest and Lesnar wasn't thrilled with him breaking the script.
He reportedly threw a tantrum backstage, tearing things up and yelling at backstage officials in the process. Lesnar also shouted at an official and said that the company was a mess. Lesnar is still a top draw on the main roster, eight years after his return to WWE. Cena is currently pursuing a Hollywood career and seems to be doing pretty well for himself.
