Here I was thinking from the headline they’d give us an update on Brock’s condition and we get an ego update instead. (From 411, taken from 1popup)
I already know he has an ego. Except for the Rock every single major wrestling star has a major ego. (Goldberg and Triple H aren’t the only guys who ever refused to job.)
What I was looking for is confirmation that Brock isn’t seriously injured. I’d settle for baseless speculation as to what his injury is. (broken nose, concussion, sprained neck, broken neck, swelled head, etc.) Where are the sources from the hospital to name the injury?
“Could Lesnar be the latest talent to form an ego?
Recent reports indicate that Brock Lesnar could be getting somewhat of a big head backstage. Lesnar apparently did not want to listen to Kurt Angle's ideas for their WrestleMania match, and instead wanted to work the match his way. Angle was apparently very frustrated by Lesnar's unwillingness to work with him.
Brock also apparently made a fuss about having to job to the Rock at the 3/15 WWE house show in Miami, FL. Brock refused to do the job and WWE officials had to get Vince McMahon himself to speak with Brock and get him to do the job.”
Galidor, re-read the post. He said Angle is one of the few WITHOUT one. And chill out, dude :)

I must be a bad writer because you guys are missing my damn point.
I’m saying that since Brock damn near broke his neck at Mania, these newz sites should be trying to find out if he is ok.
Instead they run some negative article to make him look bad. So what if he has an ego? How is that different from everyone else? Just because he wouldn’t go along with Kurt’s ideas for the match doesn’t put him in the wrong.
They are trying to get the IWC smarks to turn against Brock just like they turned against Goldberg, Hogan, HBK, and everyone else judged to have an ego problem.
How is it ok for this rookie trying to run the match? If this was your first day at a big meeting wouldn't you try to listen to someone who's been in a few first? That's why his neck is fucked up cause he wanted to try things his way.
Ok, minus the weird Devors' post, I'd like to chim in with a wait in see approach. Graned, it maybe hypocritical to bash HHH for this stuff while I let Brock slide, but I give him the benefit of the doubt. He is young, pushed to the moon and now the future of this company of course he is probably going to have an ego.
However, he is a rookie and he was a rookie working in a match with a guy who had a fucked up back. I would hope that someone would slap him on the head eventually and say "Snap out of it". Of course, Angle walked out alive and thats all I really care about.
If it is true, then I am pissed that he fought against letting Rock get his job back at a house show in Rock's hometown. I do remember reading stuff where Rock praised Brock afterwards and embraced him, so I don't know if that is evidence or not.
It doesn't shock me too much since almost everything has revolved around him after Wrestlemania of last year, King of the Ring, beating the legends, his title win, Royal Rumble and even headlining Wrestlemania. If anything I wish the WWE would stop pushing rookies to the moon, they did with Angle and no one really take him seriously until Invasion and that was almost six months after his six month title run. Did that sentence make sense? Anyway, they should really try to find a way to reach a middle ground with the young guys. If they are speical then they should wait a year, get into the groove of things and then carry the ball. That way you can see if they have develop an ego or if the crowd really responses to them. I think a good year on the road with the WWE is a good indicatator if you can pull it off. Lesnar has pulled off really well, but that maybe due to the WWE just using the marketing machine in high gear and having Flair, Hogan, Rock, Angle and taker jobb to him.
A Fan- I don't know if I believe or not, but I'll wait and see if he starts doing anything really stupid.
