Brock Lesnar doesn't appear on WWE Raw, scheduled for next week

The storyline for Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania took another turn as Vince McMahon got involved on Raw tonight.

Though it was advertised that Lesnar would finally be going face-to-face with Reigns, Kurt Angle opened the episode by announcing that Lesnar wouldn't be making it to tonight's show. Reigns came out and reiterated that Lesnar doesn't respect WWE or its fans, then turned his attention to Vince. Reigns called Lesnar "Vince's boy" and said anyone else would be punished for not showing up.

Reigns said Vince didn't have the courtesy or the respect to tell him what was happening tonight when he walked by him. After saying he wouldn't be disrespected by him, Reigns headed backstage to confront Vince.

The segment continued with them meeting off-camera in Vince's office. Reigns didn't answer Renee Young's questions after, but Vince gave his word that Lesnar will be on Raw next week and said Lesnar vs. Reigns will be happening at WrestleMania. Vince also "temporarily suspended" Reigns.

As Dave Meltzer reported, the goal for the build to WrestleMania is to get Reigns cheered to lead to his win and for the angle to feel like as much of a shoot as possible. The storyline began when Reigns claimed that Lesnar "no-showed" Raw two weeks ago.
