    (BREAKING NEWS) Brock Lesnar to leave WWE after Wrestlemania XX

    from pwinsider.com:

    "Very strange reports are coming out that Brock Lesnar could possibly be finished with the WWE after WrestleMania 20 takes place this Sunday. It seems that Bill Goldberg may not be the only main event wrestler to be done with the WWE.

    Apparantly, friends and family of Brock Lesnar state that the former WWE Champion has not been very happy recently. Lesnar is said to have been upset that he had to go and travel all the way to South Africa, "only to wrestle Hardcore Holly", as opposed to wrestling in a more high-profile match. The general consensus in the locker room was that the whole tour of SA was handled wrongly.

    Lesnar is also said to be upset that he will be programmed with the Undertaker after WrestleMania is done and dusted. He feels that he is supposed to be the "main event player" of the company, and takes exception to being fed to the "Deadman" once more.

    Interestingly enough, The Undertaker's return with his old gimmick has not gone down very well at all in the Smackdown locker room, as many wrestlers feel that his old gimmick always portrayed the wrestler as invincible, and that he didn't "sell" other wrestlers moves. They feel that Smackdown should be moving forward with the new talent, and not reverting to old ideas.

    Lesnar is scheduled to work the UK tour after WrestleMania, but it seems that he will be taking time off, after heavy discussions between himself and Vince McMahon. The WWE is not making any post-WrestleMania plans with Lesnar involved, and the company has been told to remove all Lesnar voice-over's fom upcoming show's.

    We'll have more on this story, as it develops."

    This came completely out of nowhere. I hope Lesnar doesn't go. He's a very intregal part of WWE.

    As for the Undertaker, the Smackdown crew does have a point. The Undertaker should go to RAW, IMO.

    I hope everything clears up.

    I thought the Undertaker would be going to RAW after WMXX...hmm

    As for Brock he's always had a chip on his shoulder. WWE should of known becuase the quicker you give people the title who havent really paid their dues, their ego will just grow and grow and now he thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread. No one is irreplaceable in wrestling.

    Sounds like someone has conveniently "lost their smile" just before they would have had to do a high-profile job.

    This is some unfortunate news.. Perhaps Brock did get the title too early, either way I don't agree with him wrestling Taker..

    Taker should go to RAW after Wrestlemania.

    Hopefully this little disension will lead to a Goldberg win at Mania.... I can only hope.. :D

    Perhaps Brock should take a break.. and hopefully the WWE can show that he isn't as valuable as he thinks he apparently is.

    I think Goldberg was set to do the job ever since the match came about.

    As for why Taker should be on RAW, four words:

    Randy Orton: Legend Killer.

    Corrado that is a very good idea. Also, RAW needs more talent and big names now that Goldberg will be leaving.

    Let's not jump the gun, here. The time to kill the legend of the Undertaker would be at Wrestlemania XXI.

    What's this guy's problem? "Oh no, they want me to lose, wah!" While he's not my favorite wrestler, look at The Rock. He was IT in the WWF/E for a good 5 years, and he was never too good to lose when it benefit the story. He lost to the Hurricane, even. Brock is just a huge egomaniac.

    The Undertaker will probably be on RAW after WMXX. I hated the American Bad Ass gimmick, but I love the Deadman gimmick and the return of The Undertaker is probably what im most looking forward to seeing at WMXX.

    If Lesnar leaves that would be bad because he is so over and he will remain a big time player in wrestling for awhile. And I do agree with Lesnar he shouldn't have to fly all the way to South Africa to wrestle Bob Holly. I have nothing against Holly, but he just isn't that great. As for Goldberg supposedly leaving after WMXX I am jumping for joy since I hate Goldbore.

    Ok why does everyone keep saying that Goldberg is gone after next Sunday, did he sign a year deal or something?

    "Ok why does everyone keep saying that Goldberg is gone after next Sunday, did he sign a year deal or something?"

    Basically.

    Here's Dave Meltzer's side of the story from liveaudiowrestling.com/wo:

    "--ProWrestlingInsider.com reported earlier today that Brock Lesnar may be taking time off after the Smackdown European tour which ends on 3/21 and that all post-Mania plans for him are being rewritten. The report was that Lesnar was unhappy about being removed from the top of the card and that his next planned program was being fed to Undertaker to get over the old Undertaker gimmick as an unstoppable monster. It is no secret that Lesnar wasn't handling the demotion as no longer being in the title picture well, and that Undertaker part of the story has been going around since Royal Rumble time. As of checking on things, the story is accurate but it's an issue that still hasn't been resolved as to how it's ending up. But it's not even guaranteed at this point that he's even doing the European tour."

    One thing's for certain there:

    Taker's Wrestlemania unbeaten streak continues.

    I'd say that I'm going to miss Brock Lesnar for his at least break, but I don't want to lie to all of you. If he does leave the company, then it will leave some space at the top for someone who can sound like they have an IQ above 10 when they cut a promo.

    Lesnar is not the first, but to complain about what the company asks/tells you to do and then refuse to do it/leave is pathetic in almost all cases. The Undertaker doesn't come out looking bad in his feuds with Lesnar, but he has lost the Vanilla Gorilla more times than he has won. If he keeps his head reasonably straight, Brock will be around long after the Dead Man is gone and he should do his job. Heaven forbid SmackDown! let someone else in the title picture or "the great Brock Lesnar" loses to someone. :rolleyes:

    Hahaha, good, i hope he leaves, never liked him. Goldbergs no doubt going bye bye and it'll be sweet if big head does too. Then the'll just need to get rid of Criple H for awhile so we can have some good shows again.

    I would have to disagree on that.

    While, Brock's early promos were awful "I landed on me noggin" his promos ever since he turned heel in August have been better.

    Brock is also far superiour to Goldbore when it comes to talent in the ring and on the mic.

    I would have to disagree with that...

    Because you see, Goldberg is actually superior to Lesnar if for no other reason than he doesn't all of a sudden spit out "that's all fine and dandy" when he trying to act all tough and intimidating.

    I don't mind at all that Brock isn't announced as being from South Dakota, but since he actually is I know people who are from his area and they all confirm what I could already tell—he's an idiot.
