According to documents leaked today from WWE’s Connecticut headquarters, the epic feud between top superstars Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker is actually the most elaborate, long-term prank ever concocted for SWERVED.
Everything about the rivalry — from Lesnar’s streak-breaking upset at WrestleMania 30 to the duo’s zany, bench-clearing brawls in recent months — is evidently the intricate set-up to a “hilarious punchline” to be unveiled on an upcoming episode of the WWE Network’s Jackass-like stunt show.
“I knew that weird screwjobby finish at SummerSlam seemed amiss,” veteran wrestling journalist Dan Mutzler wrote today on the Wrestling Voyeur website.
The leaked documents, published this morning on Gawker, indicate that Lesnar and The Undertaker — secretly best friends who share a condo in Death Valley — have been colluding for years to pull off the “greatest rib of all time.”
The documents do not reveal how the prank will culminate, though if previous episodes of SWERVED are any indication, it will likely involve poop, an electrified stool, and lots of footage of Dolph Ziggler laughing hysterically like an adolescent boy who has just heard a fart.
