Brock Lesnar was absent from WWE television after dropping the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. That changed at WWE SummerSlam last year, where he made his shocking return to WWE television and confronted Roman Reigns. Brock officially came back as a babyface, much to the delight of fans.
At the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view, Brock Lesnar won the WWE Championship after defeating Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Bobby Lashley. It seems he has now tied with two WWE legends for a huge record.
Bobby Lashley then became the #1 contender for Brock Lesnar’s title a couple of weeks ago. The two would have confrontations on Monday Night RAW that set up their feud properly.
While speaking on RAW Talk, Shawn Michaels talked about Brock Lesnar’s upcoming match against Bobby Lashley. Michaels stated that he believes Lashley will be Lesnar’s toughest ever fight.
“The only thing scarier than an angry Brock is a Brock so comfortable in his own skin, that he’s out there having a good time! That means he’s clicking on all cylinders. For Bobby, this match is huge, and he is obviously laser focused. He’s a very intense guy.
This is probably Brock’s toughest fight ever. I’m just going to enjoy this match as a fan.”
Brock Lesnar is set to defend his WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 29th this year. We will have to wait and see who will end up winning the match.
