Bobby Lashley may have got the last laugh when he won the WWE title from Brock Lesnar last Saturday at the Royal Rumble. That doesn’t mean he has stopped the Beast Incarnate in his quest to reclaim the title.
The two had pretty entertaining segments during the buildup to their match at the rumble. The final episode of Monday Night RAW before to the rumble saw Lesnar arrive to the ring in his cowboy attire.
RAW announcer Corey Graves, who was moderating the weigh-in segment between the two, questioned the then WWE champion’s clothing choice, to which Lensar responded by saying: “Mr. Graves, would you like me to get naked for you?”
Of course, Graves had no response. He spoke about the segment during a recent appearance on the Throwing Down podcast with Renee Young and Miesha Tate. Graves said he was at a loss for words after hearing Lesnar’s response.
“Truth be told, going out there, we know the weigh in is happening and I asked Brock if he was dressed appropriately for the moment. I’ve watched plenty of weigh-ins in our business and the MMA world and, generally, it’s big muscled up guys and girls in their skivvies.
“Brock came out in full John Dutton cowboy regalia. Brock asked me, very politely bye the way, if I would prefer that he get naked. Let me tell you, I’m very rarely intimidated in life and I don’t go around looking for a fight.
“But I’ve never felt so small in my life when you see a behemoth like Brock Lesnar offer to disrobe on global television. How do you answer that? I’m never at a loss for words. If I were to laugh, would that offend him? You don’t know.”
Lesnar has been extremely entertaining throughout his ongoing feud with Bobby Lashley for the WWE title. The two are set to collide once again for Lashley’s title in a six-man elimination chamber match at the Jeddah Super Dome on Feb. 19.
