On October 10th, Brock Lesnar shocked the world by returning to WWE for the first time since WWE SummerSlam, where he lost to Roman Reigns. Lesnar attacked then-United States Champion Bobby Lashley, delivering multiple F5’s before locking in the Kimura, doing enough damage to Bobby Lashley’s arm that he was unable to apply the Hurt Lock to Seth Rollins during their title bout immediately afterward.
In the end, Seth Rollins defeated Bobby Lashley to become the new United States Champion, and Lashley is on a rampage to get his title back. On November 8th, Rollins announced that he would be bringing back the United States Championship open challenges only to be attacked by Lashley after The Almighty laid waste to Mustafa Ali backstage. With Seth Rollins left damaged from Lashley’s attack, Austin Theory took the opportunity to cash in his Money in the Bank contract in an attempt to regain the title he lost to Lashley back in May.
While it looked like Austin Theory would triumph, Rollins kicked out of his initial offense, leaving time for Lashley to once again wreak havoc. With the referee down, Lashley pulled Theory out of the ring and attacked him, applying the Hurt Lock and rendering Theory weakened. In the end, he lost the match to Rollins, adding him to the list of people to unsuccessfully cash in a contract.
