On the season premiere of Monday Night Raw, the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar made a shocking return and destroyed Bobby Lashley before his scheduled United States Championship defense against Seth Rollins.
With the All-Mighty wounded, Rollins took advantage and defeated Lashley to become the new champion. The surprise attack enraged Lashley, who called out The Beast for a fight the following week.
Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley didn’t waste any time. The two men brawled around the ring and crashed through the barricade near the timekeeper’s area. The All-Mighty would get the better of Lesnar by slamming him through the announce table. It was then confirmed that Lashley and Lesnar would settle the score on November 5th at WWE Crown Jewel.
Brock Lesnar Wants To Finish What He Started With Bobby Lashley Next Week On Raw
WWE confirmed during last night’s edition of Monday Night Raw that Lesnar would appear on next week’s Halloween episode at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. This will be the go-home show before WWE Crown Jewel and the last chance for either the Beast or the All-Mighty to get even with one another before their epic clash. Brock Lesnar hasn’t had much luck in Dallas recently, losing to Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 38 in April of this year.

Some have speculated that Lesnar’s attack on Lashley came from a desire for revenge after losing the WWE Championship to the star at the 2022 Royal Rumble. Bobby Lashley legitimately injured his shoulder during that intense match and almost missed out on competing at WrestleMania in Dallas. Despite the injury, Lashley is still one-up against Lesnar in singles matches between the two. The Beast may be looking for a decisive win over the former United States Champion.
As for what happens to Lesnar after Crown Jewel, the jury is still out. The Beast was advertised for 2023’s Day 1 pay-per-view but that event has seemingly been scrapped
