Update: Chris Jericho and Brock Lesnar Brawl Backstage Post-SummerSlam

jericho vs lesnar

According to a report from F4WOnline, Chris Jericho rushed to the gorilla position immediately following the conclusion of the Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton match to check on Orton’s condition. When Jericho asked WWE Producer Michael Hayes if the finish was planned Hayes did not respond.

Jericho called it ‘bulls***’ just as Brock Lesnar was returning. Lesnar, who assumed Jericho was talking about the match, (according to one version of the story) called Jericho a ‘pu**y’ or simply told him to shut up and mind his own business (in another version). Jericho and Lesnar then came face-to-face and exchanged words.

Lesnar then pushed Jericho away with his fingers, causing Jericho to do what was described as a “Rousey-Tate” forehead press. Another version of the story says that Jericho shoved Lesnar into a wall and the two tangled up as Brock told Jericho to either punch him or kiss him.

Triple H would then step in to break things up, however, the two men locked horns again and this time Vince McMahon came to break things up. Jericho began to yell about Lesnar but Vince interjected and stated that it was all a work and to act professional. Triple H also reportedly told McMahon that Lesnar started the fight and Jericho was simply acting in self defense. Jericho did not say anything else but was angered more by Orton’s condition after his return, but Orton assured him he knew what was going to take place.

Update:

Dave Meltzer noted that the finish to Lesnar’s matches are usually kept secret and that only a very close select few know the finish. The belief is that blood was the plan for the finish, however, they may have gotten more blood than they wanted. Meltzer also noted that Brock called Jericho “a bunch of names that could probably get him into trouble if it came out.”

Vince came in to break up the two men after they tangled up yelling “It was a work! It was a work!” After that the whole incident pretty much ended. Jericho and Lesnar are unlikely to face any repercussions for the altercation.

    You are the one who says size doesn’t matter in a fight and keeps running his mouth. You seem confident you can take Lesnar on, so do it. Put your money where your mouth is tough talker and run up on Lesnar or are you exactly that…..just another internet tough talker. I’m sure he will be more than happy to see what you can do.

    what are you, 12 years old?
    you have no idea what I look like, or what training I have, and you totally ignore the fact that your comments about Jericho and Goldberg are wrong.
    I hate arguing with children or the mentally impaired, but sometimes you just have to do it

  • CC

    He may have gone AWOL, but you do realise that Orton was a marine? What kind of training do you think they have?
    You are still mistaking a UFC fight with a real fight. How many fights has Brock had outside of a wresting ring or UFC cage? I have never heard of any.
    There are people out there who have no formal fight training who could pretty much knock anyone out. Bare knuckle fighters for instance rarely have any former training, yet they are some of the toughest people out there.
    Brock has no martial arts training to my knowledge either. He has wrestling training, the same thing that most of the WWE locker room has. The only thing extra he has is his amateur background, but even in that he is not unique.

    You’re right, size isn’t everything. Training and conditioning is everything. When was the last time you heard about Jericho or Orton getting into a fight? Not an “altercation.” Not a situation where he “took down” a guy. An actual physical FIGHT. Never. Are either one trained in any actual martial arts? Not that I know of.

    Brock still has the advantage in my book. He may look adequate at best when you put him up against actual trained fighters in the octagon, but neither Jericho nor Orton is a an actual trained fighter.

    It certainly is not. Bruce Lee was only 5’7″ and 140lbs soaking wet. This guy fought guys bigger than him in the streets of Hong Kong with weapons as he studied Wing Chun Gung-Fu. Of course, Michael Jai White for some reason thinks he could have beaten Bruce Lee in his prime only BECAUSE he outweighed him by 100 pounds.

    Now Michael Jai White is no punk. This guy has mastered many different martial arts and is one bad dude, but for him to say that he could have beaten Bruce Lee ONLY because he was heavier was arrogant and silly. I get the same vibe when people think the Brock is an unstoppable force of nature. 50% of that is media creation. WWE books him to look unstoppable and in the UFC Brock has only looked adequate at best. He has no sand up game AT ALL, he has a glass jaw, and he turtles-up when he gets hurt. In a real fight that could cost you your life.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Ok you fight Lesnar, let see how you do.

  • CC

    Firstly as I mentioned elsewhere, being in a UFC match and being in a real fight are two different things. Being good at one does not mean being an automatic winner in the other. And size isn’t everything.
    Secondly, Jericho never claimed to have beaten up Goldberg. That story was circulating for years before his book came out, and if anything, Jericho dispelled most of the myths around it and told how it wasn’t really as big a deal as many made it out to be.

  • CC

    Considering the story has about 5 different variations, some where Jericho started it and some where Lesnar did, I don’t know how you can say Lesnar kept his cool and Jericho got trolled. Going on these stories, nobody knows what happened, especially you or anyone here.
    You don’t know if Lesnar went off script in the match or not either.
    This story has no foundation until there is a single story to it.
    And for the record, a backstage “brawl” is not an in ring sanctioned fight in UFC, so nobody knows who would win. Just because someone can win in a fight that has rules, does not mean they would do the same in a real fight that has no rules.
    Size is not everything.

    Big show botched an RKO and Randy never acted like a child as there’s some guys Randy doesn’t act up on because those guys would legit punch his lights out. Orton took everything botch/legit or scripted and went with it because there was zero chance of him winning a fight against Lesnar same with Jericho.

  • JAckh45

    Orton is the most outspoken in ring characters… When something goes wrong he usually acts upon it.
    Examples: Calling Kofi an idiot out loud after he miss timed a kick outside the ring a few years ago… The countless times tables don’t break on him when delivering an RKO… even the simple waiting for his opponents to get up so he can plant an RKO on them to end the match…
    He’s always shouting and carrying on like wild… Not once did he act this way during the cut. He even sold the weak open hand punches Lesnar attacked him after the bell (which were mostly aimed at the shoulder due to Lesnar avoiding the cut)…
    If it was legitimate backstage heat, then Orton would of acted differently.
    Lesnar is too in it for the $$$, after basically ending his UFC career, why would he risk losing his only other way to make bread.

  • “Brawl” is a bit of stretch, don’t you think?

  • D2K

    Wha-chu-talkin’-bout-Arnold?

  • D2K

    I will say that Brock has gotten boring and from those
    of us who appreciate quality, he definitely has gone down in quality. He just
    phones-in matches now with that Suplex City garbage. It’s not like he’s
    giving us different variations of suplexs like Taz used to do Kurt
    Angle used to do and even he used to do. It’s just the same German
    suplex over and over again, some outside the ring work, then an F-5.

    Honestly,
    from what I saw last night, it looked like Orton was sandbagging Lesnar
    on those suplexs. Brock has always been snug in the ring, but I think
    he busted Orton open for real as payback. Not right at all, but that is
    what it looked like to me, A blade job does produce a gash like that
    on someone’s head. Maybe the TKO was planned, but I don’t think that
    blood was.

  • MrDr3w

    My point was that, Jericho takes so much pleasure in trolling the marks within the IWC, and he himself got fooled. And yes, Lesnar indeed would’ve taken Jericho down. Notice how Lesnar kept his cool throughout the whole ordeal. But of course Jericho, being the hothead that he is, felt the need to get physical and TRY to punk Lesnar out.

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    You guys are all about the hype, aren’t you… HA!

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    You give Lesnar that much credit, really? No, he wouldn’t have “torn” Jericho, apart. I’m sure that there are a few people backstage what could tear Lesnar apart in a heartbeat. Including Jericho.

  • MrDr3w

    The only reason he’s alive is because the finish of the match indeed was a work. If he wanted to tear Orton apart, he would’ve. If he wanted to tear Jericho apart, he would’ve. Lesnar is a businessman. He knows better.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Jericho needs to realize that the only reason he is still alive is because Lesnar allowed him to keep living. I’m sure Jericho’s spin will be he has beaten up Lesnar and Goldberg now and write a book about it. SMH
