After almost two decades of waiting, fans finally got to see their dream match Bobby Lashley and Brock LesnarWhich happened at Royal Rumble 2022. The booking saw Lashley get the better of Lesnar, Roman Reigns interrupt the proceedings and cost him the WWE Championship. After the defeat, which came under debatable circumstances, Lesnar turned his attention to The Tribal Chief as they chose to settle matters in a last-man-standing match at SummerSlam. The result then went in Reigns’ favor.
The storyline between Lashley and Lesnar was renewed a few months later as the latter made a surprise appearance on Raw that October. Lesnar then brutally attacked Lashley before a match against Seth Rollins with the United States Championship on the line. Rollins eventually went on to take the title away from Lashley, taking advantage of Lesnar’s damage.
Lashley and Lesnar then met for a second time at Crown Jewel in November as the latter won the match, but not in convincing fashion.
With the score tied at 1-1, Lashley is open to the challenge and has teased the idea of a more extreme third episode. “You know the interesting thing about Brooke and I. I just met Brooke a few years ago. Everyone was talking about us maybe starting my career in 2005, but we never crossed paths. MMA, I was still in professional wrestling, I went to MMA, he went to professional wrestling and we just kept messing with each other and not because maybe a few years ago our first There’s been a meeting. A conversation between the two of us. We’ve had some matches, some conversations that happened on screen, but outside of that there’s a guy like Brock who keeps it to himself. With Brock. I don’t think so. That someone backstage really had something with Brooke.
“But I’m looking forward to the matchup with him. I like the kind of fights where it makes me push myself. I like to fight. Brock likes to fight. We have a lot of similarities, So I think the next match that everybody wants to see is No Holds Barred. It’s probably going to come down to a point where we get locked in a cage or an extreme rules match or something like that. Something like that. But it’s going to happen,” Lashley explained hindustantimes.com In an exclusive interview
In his illustrious career, Lashley has won several titles while working with the WWE. He was also promoted in 2007 as the first Superstar to break former WWE star Chris Masters’ deadly hold “The Master Lock”. Now Lashley appears to be performing a similar move on his opponents, with the only thing separating the two submissions being the name. . Lashley called it “The Hurt Lock”.
Chris, who now wrestles in the NWA (National Wrestling Alliance), recently opened up about the idea of the two competing on WWE. When Lashley was asked about it, God gave an epic answer. “I love it. I’ve seen Chris, I follow him on social media and he’s doing a lot. He’s wrestling all over the world and he’s getting better. And I think if If he gets a chance to come back, I think it’s going to be a really great showcase. Whether it’s at the Rumble, you never know. There’s always a surprise at the Rumble. I think Chris has done a great job in the world of professional wrestling. It has proven itself in a way.
“If he comes back, you know what I’ll do? I’ll literally just turn around and put my hands out and tell him to put it on me again so I can break it a second time. And Then I’d ask him to do it. And I guarantee you he’s not breaking the Hurtlock. So there’s a lot of things that could happen in this matchup, but I think it’s going to be good for the fans to see. And I took it from him because if I break, it’s mine,” he said.
As we approach WWE’s first pay-per-view event of the year, the Royal Rumble, Lashley emerges as a strong contender to win the 30-man Rumble. If that’s the case, then Lashley has his sights set on Reigns’ WWE Universal Title. “I think Universal, I think I’ll go for that, because I’ve had the WWE Championship for a long time, but I don’t have Universal, so I think that’s what I’m going to take. Will try. From him after winning the Rumble,” he said.
