He stated that Brock actually grabbed Matt and alleged said the following: "Kid, you might as well stop saying my name and tagging me in s--t because you and I will never work together. Ever." Matt actually tried to talk to Lesnar after that, but Lesnar just walked away after saying what he had to say according to witnesses.
