Last night in Minneapolis, Minnesota - in front of Brock Lesnar's hometown people - "The Beast" and his Advocate, Paul Heyman would respond to Goldberg's return last week on Monday Night Raw where the former World Champion accepted Lesnar's challenge for a future fight.
Paul Heyman, being the microphone mastermind, attempted to cut a heel promo on behalf of Brock Lesnar; setting up the crowd to chant "GOLDBERG" as often as possible. Heyman's efforts were met with a lukewarm reception at best. Instead, loud chants of "Suplex City' and "Goldberg Sucks" echoed throughout the arena.
Reports indicate that Vince McMahon was furious with the crowd reaction. Because when you bring a local legend back to his hometown, the crowd will definitely turn on him, right? Good ol' McMahon logic. While the segment was scheduled to run longer, McMahon made the call to hit Brock Lesnar's music and bring the promo to an abrupt end.
What will happen when Brock Lesnar and Goldberg meet in Toronto next month? Lesnar who now calls The Great White North home, may receive some solid support from the Canadian crowd.
