In his interview with BT Sport's Ariel Helwani released Friday, WWE's Paul "Triple H" Levesque said there is "some truth" to Brock Lesnar walking out of SmackDown the day that Vince McMahon announced his retirement.

On that July 22nd day in Boston, Bryan Alvarez reported what happened with Lesnar leaving as soon as the news broke with him saying, "If he's gone, I'm gone" in relation to McMahon.

While Levesque didn't specifically share the exact wording, he said that Lesnar did have a moment of doubt when he heard that McMahon was stepping down from his WWE duties because "Vince is the devil he knows." 

He said that Lesnar took his time to digest everything, there were conversations, he did his business that night and that they had long conversations about the future. In the end, everything between the two is "all good."

The subsequent week, Lesnar lost to WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at SummerSlam and hasn't been back on WWE TV since.
