During the latest episode of “WWE 24” that premiered on the WWE Network last night following the Royal Rumble, a tense moment involving Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon was featured backstage moments after the WrestleMania 34 main event.
While wrestling media reports at the time had speculated about some kind of incident backstage between Lesnar and McMahon, including the planned finished being changed based on crowd reactions in New Orleans, it would appear things were tense.
A clip from the episode was uploaded to Twitter via @r0bato showing Lesnar entering the gorilla position backstage with the Universal Championship in hand and then quickly tossing it at Vince McMahon. Vince could be heard yelling, “Hey, asshole” moments later.

Whether or not the moment was actually something genuine that was caught on camera, WWE announced that Lesnar had signed a contract extension with the company the following day to be part of the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
Last November, it was revealed WWE then approached about Lesnar about another new deal after Roman Reigns was forced to step away from the ring.
