On the day longtime chairman and CEO Vince McMahon announced his retirement from WWE, a top star reportedly left SmackDown before the show.
According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, multiple sources said Brock Lesnar departed TD Garden in Boston hours before the scheduled start of Friday’s episode of SmackDown.
Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp confirmed the report and noted that was told Lesnar was “pissed off.”
Lesnar was advertised to appear on SmackDown, and it is unclear if he was in Boston to take part in a pretaped segment and simply left when his commitments were done, or if he walked out before what was supposed to be a live appearance.
The report surfaced just minutes after McMahon announced he was permanently stepping down as WWE chairman and CEO amid an investigation into him paying four women to sign nondisclosure agreements in exchange for remaining silent about sexual relationships or encounters.
