The main event for World Wrestling Entertainment’s upcoming SummerSlam event has been called off after former enemies Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker settled their differences through respectful, constructive dialogue.
“We have reached a gentlemen’s agreement,” Lesnar told reporters this morning.
“Do ‘Taker and I have our differences? Sure. Who doesn’t? But violence is never the answer. We’re in a really good place in our relationship now, and I couldn’t be happier.”
The two behemoths needed to be pulled apart during a wild brawl last week, leading to great anticipation for SummerSlam — their first official showdown since Lesnar conquered the Undertaker’s legendary WrestleMania winning streak in 2014.
But with the help of psychiatrist Dr. Marion Shelby, the men “let bygones be bygones” and agreed that life is too short to let old resentments hinder future friendships.
At Dr. Shelby’s urging, The Undertaker and Lesnar met last night at an Applebee’s restaurant — the site of a recent violent brawl between the men — and “hugged it out” after sharing a conciliatory plate of fajita poppers.
“It was nice to put the past behind us,” said The Undertaker. “Brock’s a good guy. He broke my streak fair and square. I’ve accepted that. I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship.”
