What's the story?

As we reported yesterday, WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar was in action at a house show on Friday night where he pinned The Miz in under two minutes and destroyed not only The Miztourage but the referee too!

Well, the referee in question, Dan Engler, has now taken to Twitter to speak about his traumatic experience.

In case you didn't know...

Brock Lesnar hit the headlines last week when he no-showed for his WWE Raw appearance the day after Elimination Chamber. It's been said that the former UFC star may be playing hardball in contract negotiations.

Lesnar has since appeared on two house shows - beating Kane in 30 seconds in Chicago, Illinois, then going for almost three times that length against The Miz in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

After the match in Minnesota, Brock laid waste to everything and everyone in sight - including the referee.

The heart of the matter

Well, WWE referee Dan Engler has taken to Twitter to react to his traumatic experience on Friday.

Curt Hawkins also decided to chip in with this hilarious tweet.

What's next?

Brock Lesnar is advertised for this Monday's edition of Raw, emanating from the Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit, Michigan. Lesnar is set to finally go face to face with Roman Reigns after The Big Dog cut two scathing promos on him in recent weeks.

Will anyone else be suffering at the hands of The Beast? We'll find out on Raw!

Author's Take

Poor Dan Engler. Although you never know, maybe Curt Hawkins is trying to set up a match against the ref in the hopes of finally picking up a W and ending his streak.

In all seriousness, it's always awesome to see a referee bear the brunt of an assault from a wrestler (sorry, refs) and it's pretty awesome that Engler even went on to Twitter to sell the move. I mean, he did a pretty good job of that in the ring anyway!
