Brock Lesnar's transgressions against Randy Orton and SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon came with a financial crippling punishment: A whopping $500 fine!
Lesnar busted Orton open with an elbow which prompted referee's to stop the match and he then proceeded to hit an F-5 on Shane McMahon. Orton required 10 stitches to close the wound. Monday Night RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon said on RAW that there would be repercussions against the former WWE Champion and UFC Heavyweight Champion. WWE.com wrote the following announcement on Lesnar's punishment:
Brock Lesnar’s brutal SummerSlam main event assault on Randy Orton has cost The Beast Incarnate $500.
Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon confirmed on Monday night that Lesnar would face repercussions for his vicious actions against The Viper at The Biggest Event of the Summer. The WWE Universe learned on Tuesday’s SmackDown Live Pre-Show that the $500 fine was set by Stephanie.
Is the fee enough to satiate SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon’s peace of mind for the heinous act inflected upon one of his show’s top Superstars? Is this seemingly paltry sum an insult to Shane and SmackDown Live? How will Lesnar’s fine impact the already strained relations between Team Red and Team Blue?
With his suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission being announced earlier in the day for failing drug tests in the lead-up to his UFC 200 victory against Mark Hunt, Lesnar will definitely be looking to find some source of income.
No word yet on if the always-angry Mark Hunt will get a piece of this $500 pie.
