Chris Jericho told True Geordie in a new interview that when Brock Lesnar elbowed Randy Orton to the head and made him bleed at SummerSlam 2016, he was angry backstage, and Brock confronted him. He said he and Brock were nose to nose, “He was saying that would probably get him cancelled. Like homophobic terms you shouldn’t say.”
Jericho said he was ready to ‘bite [Brock]’s nose off’ if The Beast Incarnate hit him, even if he got his ass kicked Brock would ‘walk around the rest of his life without a nose.’

WWE are involved in plenty of scandals right now, and if this Brock Lesnar story catches steam, it’ll be another in addition to Vince McMahon’s issues, and WWE’s lawsuit with MLW. In January, MLW filed an anti-trust lawsuit against WWE where an allegation was made that it interfered with potential streaming/television deals with Tubi and Vice TV.
MLW filed a motion with The United States District Court, Northern District of California, back in June, to request that the court shorten the time for the Initial Case Management Conference between the two sides by moving it up to September 29th.
MLW noted that the court had arranged for a case management conference between them, and then moved it back to October. MLW added in their motion that they will not be able to begin discovery until the case management conference is completed and requested WWE sit down for a conference. WWE refused to do so and cited a ruling on whether the court will side with WWE’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit on September 29th.
MLW had asked the court to postpone the conference to September 29th as they would suffer a lot of damages and prejudice without the court intervening. MLW also argued that moving the conference up a month “would promote judicial efficiency and enable the parties to proceed with discovery more expeditiously” because that is the same date that the Court is set to hear the oral argument on WWE’s motion to dismiss.
WWE would then go on to argue against the movement. According to court documents obtained by PWinsider, on July 7th, Judge Edward J. Davila ruled against MLW’s motion.
