Goldberg was likely paid $2-3 million for his WWE Elimination Chamber match with Roman Reigns, and he was paid $5-6 million per year by WWE, Billi Bhatti reported on The Wrestling Informer.
The general consensus is that Brock Lesnar is one of the most dominant pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He had two terrific runs in WWE, both of which saw him winning major World Titles and being a huge draw for fans. Brock Lesnar was not seen on WWE television ever since he dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 back in 2020. Brock Lesnar was also previously called out by a Superstar from Monday Night RAW.
After being away from WWE television for over a year, Brock Lesnar made his return at WWE SummerSlam in 2021, immediately setting his sights set on Roman Reigns. He also sported a ponytail, which was completely different from what fans were used to seeing him in.
Lesnar won the WWE Championship after defeating Big E, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, and Bobby Lashley in a Fatal Five-Way match at WWE Day 1. However, he would lose the title to Bobby Lashley last month after Roman Reigns interfered in the match thanks to Paul Heyman turning on The Beast Incarnate.
Lesnar competed in the WWE Title Elimination Chamber match at the WWE Elimination Chamber event on February 19th in Saudi Arabia, where he ended up winning the match.
When two pods were left to open during the match, Lashley’s pod was selected but he was not present in it as Lashley had to be taken out of the match. Lesnar simply destroyed his pod to enter the match. According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Lesnar legitimately smashed through the chamber door and it was not planned whatsoever.
“Brock Lesnar smashed through a legitimate Elimination Chamber door to enter the EC match and we are told that was not a planned spot. That is one scary man.”
