Below is an excerpt of Reigns' promo from the show.
"I don't know why I'm covering for this guy. Brock Lesnar's not here tonight. Up until about 30 minutes ago, I thought Brock was going to be here, but something happened or the other and he didn't show. Brock Lesnar is an entitled piece of crap who hides behind his contract. We are six weeks from WrestleMania and the Universal Champion is not here today. We were in Vegas last night, Brock was in Vegas yesterday. He was running around the strip with Dana White of the UFC taking pictures for social media. He doesn't respect me, he doesn't respect you, and he doesn't respect anyone in that locker room. Brock just shows up whenever he wants to when the money is right and the city is right."
In last week's Fightful Wrestling Weekly, we exclusively mentioned that Lesnar was trying to leverage the UFC against his WWE contract yet again. This has become a bit of a tradition for Lesnar, as he's done it in the past in addition to walking our of a 2017 Raw show. This, however, was all planned an a part of the Raw script.
WrestleMania 34 takes place April 8 from New Orleans, Louisiana. Fightful.com will have full live coverage of the show, including a post-show podcast of it and many other weekend events.
