At Elimination Chamber Bobby Lashley overcame Brock Lesnar, but only after The Beast got himself disqualified by hitting a low blow.
Although his former charge won the match, MVP was unimpressed with how the victory for the All-Mighty came about. On the February 20th episode of Raw, MVP branded Lesnar a coward and challenged him to face Omos at WrestleMania.
Fast forward to February 27th and Lesnar was set to appear on the VIP Lounge to give his answer.
Unusually it was Lesnar who entered first, meaning he had to work on convincing MVP to even come down to the ring. Once the two men were face-to-face, Lesnar told Omos’ representative to sell him on the match. To the surprise of many, the sales pitch worked and Lesnar agreed to the match at WrestleMania.

Brock Lesnar Heading To WrestleMania
To toast the deal, Lesnar produced a flask of what he called White Lightening from his pocket. Lesnar took a long swig, before handing the flask to his counterpart. MVP tried to follow The Beast’s lead but couldn’t handle it and spat the drink into Lesnar’s face.
After mopping himself down Lesnar flatted MVP with an F-5.
Elsewhere on the show, Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso defeated the Street Profits and Cody Rhodes saw off Chad Gable. After the match, Rhodes announced that he’s heading to SmackDown to meet Roman Reigns face-to-face.
