WWE REPORT: Brock to face no punishment for attack

Since he re-emerged on WWE television thenight after WrestleMania 28, former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has being tearing through the ranks of WWE, and no one, not even non-wrestlingpersonnel, is safe.
Never was this more perfectly illustrated than on last Monday's Raw SuperShow. As Lesnar arrived at the building (late, of course), he was approached by announcer Josh Mathews for a quick interview.
Mathews rather innocently asked the star about his current status in WWE, only to be brutally attacked and thrown against a nearby steel fence. It seems the reporter had unknowingly angered the UFC behemoth and payed greatly for it.An unconscious and severely injured Mathews was later seen being stretched outby medical staff.
On commentary, this was sold as a serious angle, witheven the usually obnoxious Michael Cole acting far more sombre and putting over the horrifying nature of Lesnar's actions against a defenceless announcer and wondering what the repercussions for the star would be.
Notably, it was announced on SmackDown two weeks ago that world heavyweightchampion Sheamuswas being fined a whopping$500,000 by John Laurinaitis after putting his hands on a referee in a match a week earlier.
Of course, according to this announcement on , Lesnar will face no punishment for his outrageous actions.That's right; none whatsoever.As the site notes, the star is being protected by Raw and SmackDown general manager John Laurinaitis:
The wrecking machine will walk free, as WWE.comhas learned that nopunishment will belevied against Brock Lesnar for his attack of Josh Mathews on this past Monday’s Raw SuperShow...The development is notentirely surprising, as Lesnar exempted himself from any type of fines as part of his demands to EVP of Talent Relations and Raw and SmackDown GM John Laurinaitis during his contract signing later in the evening. But it is a major development nonetheless, and a potential glimpse of things to come.
Going by this development, it appears WWE will be playing up the idea, strongly hinted at in the final segment on last week's Raw, that Laurinaitis must now pathetically acquiesce to every one of Lesnar's whims and demands if he wishes to keep the wrestler on his flagship show.
Certainly, it will be interesting to see where the angle goes from here, as well as if it plays into the main event of Extreme Rules this Sunday (Lesnar takes on John Cena at the show).
