While discussing Friday’s WWE Live Event at Madison Square Garden during the latest installment of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer indicated that WWE’s efforts to turn Brock Lesnar heel by having him “miss” WWE events and portraying him as someone who doesn’t care about the business, will backfire at WrestleMania this year.
The belief is that Madison Square Garden crowds are “ahead of the curve” and at Friday’s Live Event fans in attendance were cheering Lesnar and it’s very likely that it’s going to happen at WrestleMania 34 as well.
“Brock wrestled a three-way with Braun Strowman and Kane. So I guess the interesting thing is that Brock Lesnar was the most popular guy on the show, so all this stuff to turn audience against Brock Lesnar — now of course Madison Square Garden is a unique audience. When it’s Toronto it’s bizarro land and when it’s New York, it’s ahead of the curve or whatever it is even though they are very similar but WWE looks at them completely different.”
If that’s any indication, Brock Lesnar is going to get cheered at WrestleMania.
