Brock Lesnar laid waste to everyone in sight in Minneapolis

What's the story?

As we reported last night, WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar was in action at a house show last night, where he destroyed The Miz, pinning the Intercontinental Champion in just under 90 seconds - and laying waste to The Miztourage in the process.

New footage has emerged from the event in Minnesota, showing Brock Lesnar delivering an F5 to the referee after the match too!

In case you didn't know...

The WWE Universal Champion hit the headlines last week when he apparently didn't show up when booked for the Monday Night Raw after Elimination Chamber having supposedly met Dana White of UFC during the pay-per-view.

Lesnar made his return to WWE in Chicago, Illinois, for a house show match against Kane that barely lasted 30 seconds then had his second match in a week at a house show in Minneapolis, Minnesota against The Miz last night.

The heart of the matter

The show in Lesnar's "hometown" of sorts, Minneapolis, saw Lesnar destroy everyone in sight. The Miz cut a heel promo on the town before Lesnar delivered some revenge on behalf of his old stomping ground. Lesnar attended college in Minneapolis and has a history with the local NFL team, the Minnesota Vikings.

After hinting that Lesnar may not be in the building when his music played for a little bit too long before The Beast arrived, Lesnar made quick work of Miz with a minute-long match being all that was needed to see Universal Champion pin Intercontinental Champion.

Shockingly, though, after the match, Lesnar also laid waste to the referee - leaving a pile of bodies in his wake.

What's next?

Brock Lesnar is advertised for this Monday's edition of Raw, emanating from the Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit, Michigan. After two scathing promos from Roman Reigns, this one is a must-see!


The WWE Universal Champion officially returns to the ring for his first televised match since the Royal Rumble at WrestleMania against Reigns.

Author's Take

What can be said about this? Poor referee - but no wrestling fan can even pretend they don't like seeing this. F5s for everyone!
