Shane McMahon Tweets That Brock Lesnar Crossed Line With Randy Orton Elbows

Shane McMahon Tweets That Brock Lesnar Crossed Line With Randy Orton Elbows

Shane McMahon is not happy with Brock Lesnar and took to Twitter to say the wrestler crossed the line by elbowing Randy Orton at Summerslam.

There was a bloody ending to the main event of the pay-per-view at the Barclays Center in New York after Lesnar caught Orton with two elbows to the head.

It’s unclear whether or not it was deliberate from The Beast, but many have their theories based on the WWE cutting down on the use of blood over recent years.

Lesnar was even awarded the match as Orton lay on the ground and awaited treatment.

Even McMahon made an appearance, running down into the ring to Orton’s aid before receiving an F5 from Lesnar.

Orton has since required 10 stitches in his head, confirming that it was a genuine cut and Lesnar – whether deliberately or not – did him some damage.

‘Crossed a line’

And now McMahon has taken to Twitter to criticise Lesnar:

We were thinking that McMahon was planning a follow-up tweet to explain his view, but that’s not came yet.

Lesnar is yet to comment on the incident, while Orton has been silent in the aftermath too.

But there’s obviously more to come in this feud between the wrestlers and McMahon may turn out to have a big impact on the way it goes.
