#1 Brock Lesnar calls the shots, not Vince McMahon
As enraging as the statement above may sound, that is the reality. The Beast Incarnate has incredible power backstage.
Dave Meltzer spoke about the relationship between Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon and revealed that the current WWE Champion is the one who calls the shots when it comes to his own storylines and even Vince McMahon won't have his way.
Lesnar reportedly loses the feuds he wants to lose and is the only Superstar who can get away with anything backstage.
Here's what Meltzer had to say:
Whether he’s a babyface or a heel, Brock’s only going so far for the team. Brock’s not gonna like… when it comes to Brock and Vince, people hate this, but when it comes to Brock and Vince — Brock is the one who calls the shots, not Vince and Brock can get away with anything and people hate hearing that. In the end, it’s still Vince’s company, but Brock isn’t doing anything that Brock doesn’t want to do. Every program, when he loses he wants to lose… every program, that’s just how it is you know it’s an interesting thing. H/t Credit: Sportskeeda
Lesnar became a 5-time WWE Champion recently when he defeated Kofi Kingston in seven seconds at the WWE SmackDown Premiere on Fox. He is expected to take on Cain Velasquez at Crown Jewel for the WWE Championship on October 31st.
