Brock Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 on Sunday night to retain the Universal Championship, which has left many wondering what that means for his expiring WWE contract. To add even more uncertainty to the situation, Lesnar reportedly got into a heated altercation with his boss after the event.
Ryan Satin of ProWreslingSheet.com reports that Lesnar and WWE CEO Vince McMahon got into a “real-life verbal altercation” following Lesnar’s match against Reigns. It’s unclear exactly what sparked the conflict, but speculation is that it may have had something to do with Lesnar going off-script.
Details are still scarce, but we’re told Lesnar was livid when he returned to the backstage gorilla position and went off on the WWE Chairman … who was not happy about it.
Sources tell us the brief, but heated incident ended with Brock throwing the Universal Title belt — some say at Vince, some say at a wall — then walking away. No word yet on what set him off.
We’re told there’s a belief that Brock may have gone off script a little bit near the end of the match, but we’ve been unable to confirm if this is true.
At one point during the match, Lesnar hit Reigns with some vicious elbows to the head. Reigns was left a bloody mess following the shots, though in typical WWE fashion it was difficult to get a feel for the authenticity, so to speak.

Based on everything we have heard recently about Lesnar continuing his MMA career, it’s unclear what his future looks like in wrestling. If he’s having issues with McMahon, that could make everyone’s decision easier.
