After destroying Randy Orton and opening a new hole in his skull at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar gave Shane McMahon an F-5 when the SmackDown Live Commissioner rushed out to check on his superstar. The next night on Raw, Stephanie McMahon promised The Beast would face disciplinary measures for his actions.
This seems to make clear the continuation of this story is simply to shift the focus back to the McMahon family war while Lesnar hangs out at home waiting for WWE to call for his next match, which may not be for a few months, if not next year.
What’s a work and what’s a shoot? Who even knows anymore, right?
