Regarding Lesnar’s surprise return, Riddle said he was excited to see Brock back in WWE. Riddle mentioned that Lesnar is a great athlete and competitor and that fans missed him in his absence.
Riddle also indicated that Lesnar had chosen Reigns and the Universal title to avoid Riddle’s fuss.
“Brock came out at the end of the show. I saw a sign on a door that said Mr. Beast and asked myself, “Who the hell is Mr. Beast? I have a feeling this is Brock. ‘ You know, hey, I’m glad Brocks is back. The fans have missed him and he’s a bloody competitor. Personally, I think he chose the wrong man – he chose Roman. But people love this Universal Championship, so I understand it. I think they’re both doing the right thing because they don’t want to get hurt. “(H / t on Bleacher Report for the transcript)
