Brock Lesnar shocked the world when he returned on the season premiere of WWE Raw. He hadn’t been seen since his loss to Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, and on October 10th, he made his way back to the red brand to attack then-United States Champion Bobby Lashley. After delivering multiple F5’s, Lesnar locked in the Kimura. Because of the damage to his arm, Lashley was unable to apply the Hurt Lock during his United States Championship match with Seth Rollins, and he was defeated following multiple Stomps.
The next week, Lashley spoke in the ring and angrily called out Lesnar, which led to the two of them brawling at the beginning of the show. Lesnar was absent from the red brand last week, but ahead of the most recent episode of WWE Raw, The Beast Incarnate was advertised to return.
“If They Touch, The Fight Is Off” – Triple H Makes Declaration To Brock Lesnar & Bobby Lashley
During the October 31st edition of WWE Raw, Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar were scheduled for a backstage interview segment. However, Lesnar was nowhere to be seen as Lashley prepared for the interview, and when The Almighty began addressing his issues with The Beast, the sounds of Lesnar’s theme music could be heard in the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
Lesnar made his way to the ring and said that he came to Texas to do what Texans do: fight. He called out Lashley, and sure enough, his foe ran to the ring and the two once again engaged in a brawl. Numerous security personnel (including NXT stars Von Wagner and Duke Hudson) and WWE agents came out to break up the melee.
The brawl also captured the attention of WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H, who made a rare TV appearance to declare that they needed to break up the fight. When they refused, The Game declared that if they touch each other again ahead of WWE Crown Jewel, their match in Saudi Arabia will be called off.
