Does Brock Lesnar Have Creative Control?
The decision to have Brock Lesnar retain the Universal Championship over Roman Reigns not once but twice left many scratching their heads and it started a lot of rumors about his future.
It also made many wonder if the Beast has some kind of creative control over his character and a fan recently asked Dave Meltzer about it on Twitter.
Answering the question, the Wrestling Journalist said that while Vince McMahon listens to both Brock and his advocate Paul Heyman, the Boss makes the final call at the end:
Don't think anything is in his contract, but Vince listens to him and Paul and takes their ideas under advisement, but make no mistake, it is Vince's call whatever happens. https://t.co/kxzzS9KAQt
