Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley III is seemingly in the pipeline in the WWE calendar after what transpired on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. It was the 30th anniversary of the longest-running weekly episodic television show in history where the ten-time world champion made his ominous presence felt on the show at the very end.
In the main event of Raw is XXX, Austin Theory put his United States Championship on the line against Bobby Lashley in a No-DQ Match after the latter emerged as the winner in a Six-Way Elimination match, last week.
Towards the end of the bout, Lashley sent Theory into a steel chair at the ring post before delivering a superplex off the top rope. Theory tried to low-blow Bobby Lashley but the former WWE champion eventually sent him through a table that had previously been set up. It was at this moment that Brock Lesnar’s music hit the arena.
The Beast came out and quickly struck Lashley with an F5, before grabbing Theory for another F5. An unconscious Theory fell on the lifeless body of Lashley and got the pinfall win by default to retain his title. Then Raw XXX went off the air with Brock Lesnar greeting fans at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Brock Lesnar waiting for his third bout against Bobby Lashley
As noted above, the third encounter between Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar could go down at this Saturday’s Royal Rumble or at the Elimination Chamber PLE on February 18. This weekend, these two behemoths may collide in the 30-Man Royal Rumble match, leaving the ultimate singles fight for Wrestlemania Hollywood in April.
A few weeks ago, Lashley declared his entry into the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match but his current adversary is yet to announce his status clear for the WWE PLE. We may have to wait until Friday’s WWE SmackDown go-home episode to learn whether the marquee attraction gets added to the premium live event, after all.
Currently, Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar have one win in their rivalry that started in early 2022. The All-Mighty secured a win at last year’s Royal Rumble but then Lesnar neutralized the score at Crown Jewel in November 2022. The third battle should act as the rubber match, henceforth.
