WWE has announced a mega showdown between The Almighty Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar. The match is set to take place at WWE Crown Jewel. However, pro wrestling veteran Jim Cornette believes that the marquee match would not be received as hoped by the global juggernaut.
The Beast Incarnate recently made his return to RAW, interrupting Lashley. Brock Lesnar then laid out The Almighty before his scheduled match with Seth Rollins. Furthermore, The Visionary capitalized on it and snatched the WWE United States Championship from Lashley. This led to an all-out brawl between the two titans and a week later, the match was made official.
Cornette gave his opinion on the upcoming match, talking about it on the 455th episode of The Jim Cornette Experience.
“They suddenly had Brock reappear and switch heel out of nowhere. He just beat the sh** out of Bobby Lashley, the babyface, and the people cheered madly while he did it. So, unfortunately, I think they are probably going to cheer Brock against Lashley, even though it is supposed to be set up to be exactly the opposite.”
Jim further added that the reception of the match will be completely opposite of what WWE is expecting.
“Bobby was a stronger heel, and also could take care of himself better as a heel with the manager and the group, because he’s not an over-the-top personality. They are going to gravitate to Lesnar because he’s a f***ing freak of various natures. I’m looking forward to seeing it from an athletic standpoint, but I think it will probably accomplish exactly the opposite of what they apparently want, which was Brock to turn heel on Lashley.”
Lashley and Lesnar previously collided at WWE Royal Rumble 2022. This was their very first one-on-one match in the WWE. The match saw Bobby Lashley defeating Brock Lesnar for the WWE title thanks to interference by Roman Reigns. However, weeks later Lesnar regained the title at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
