Brock Lesnar recaptured the Universal Championship tonight when he defeated Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel. However, mere hours after his monumental win, he’s already been called out by NXT’s newest signee, Matt Riddle.
The King of Bros hasn’t hidden the fact that a match against the Beast Incarnate is a dream match for him. In fact, multiple times, he’s stated that he wants to retire Brock Lesnar.
Thank you Brock for coming back and winning the universal title! You’re right where I need you bro and it’s gonna be that much sweeter when I retire you in a couple years. #kingofbros #bro #stallion #nxt #wwenxt #wwenetwork pic.twitter.com/2e4cbvxWRN

On Twitter today, the message was no different. Riddle didn’t congratulate Lesnar, instead opting to thank him for being “right where he needs him.”
While a matchup with the Universal Champion seems out of reach right now, is it possible we could see the King of Bros get his dream match?
