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. Some were not happy about Lesnar winning the 2022 Men’s Royal Rumble match, but Nia Jax seems to be on board.
Brock Lesnar defended his WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley in a highly-anticipated match. It ended in a controversial manner as Paul Heyman betrayed Lesnar and had Roman Reigns hit him with the WWE Championship.
Due to the interference, Bobby Lashley defeated Brock Lesnar and thus became the new champion. Later on in the night Lesnar came out at #30 in the Men’s Royal Rumble match and ended up winning the match as well.
This decision was met with a lot of backlash from fans. Nia Jax took to Twitter and defended against the criticism of Lesnar winning the Royal Rumble match as she stated that Lesnar comes back whenever WWE needs it.
“I’m a big Brock fan! He’s insanely talented, works so hard & is a genuinely nice person. He comes back when he’s needed, and always gives back
We will have to wait and see how WWE will book Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar’s feud as it is very likely the two will duke it out at WrestleMania 38.
