Brock Lesnar is undoubtedly one of the most dominant pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. He had two tremendous runs in WWE, both of which resulted in him winning major World Championships and being a huge draw for fans. Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE television ever since he dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 last year. Brock Lesnar was also previously called out by a Superstar from Monday Night RAW.
Brock Lesnar made his return at WWE SummerSlam and then appeared on a previous episode of Friday Night Smackdown and confronted Roman Reigns for a WWE Universal Championship match, which he eventually accepted.
The two were set to square off against each other at WWE Crown Jewel for the WWE Universal Championship on October 21st in Saudi Arabia. At the event, Brock Lesnar ended up losing the match after interference from The Usos and Roman Reigns using the WWE Universal Championship to hit Lesnar in the head.
At WWE Day 1, Brock Lesnar won the WWE Championship after defeating Big E, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, and Bobby Lashley in a Fatal Five-Way match. This is because Roman Reigns could not compete at the pay-per-view and face Brock Lesnar. After all, he tested positive for the virus.
During this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar did a weigh-in before their Royal Rumble match. On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez revealed that the weigh-in segment featured their billed weights instead of their actual weight.
“You know those weights are worked, right? He might be more, for all I know. The whole thing is work. Because the deal is, they decided that since Bobby Lashley is announced at 273 pounds and Brock Lesnar is now at 286 pounds, that’s gonna be the numbers. So, everything about that was just, um. That was the decision Vince made. That our announced weights have to be real. So, therefore, when they weigh-in, it has to be exactly their announced weights no matter what they actually weigh.”
