Brock Lesnar lost the WWE title during the Royal Rumble, aided by the betrayal of his manager Paul Heyman which paved the way for Bobby Lashley. The Beast redeemed itself in the royal brawl, entering with the number 30 and easily beating the competition.
His latest rival was Drew McIntyre, who could do nothing in the face of the fury of the former Universal Champion. It has already been announced that Brock will meet Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38, the most anticipated event of the year.
Before the 'Showcase of the Immortals', Lesnar will be busy at Elimination Chamber, which will take place on February 19 in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). Bobby Lashley will defend the WWE Championship from an onslaught by Austin Theory, AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, Riddle and Brock Lesnar this Saturday.
In the latest episode of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo expressed some concerns about this weekend's big match.
Vince Russo on Brock Lesnar
"Brock Lesnar's rivals look like kids in his presence" - began Russo.
“Austin Theory is just too small to bother the Beast, so is Riddle. Seth Rollins was smart enough to avoid getting too close to Lesnar. There is too much physical gap between Brock and the other participants in Saturday’s Elimination Chamber match" - he added.
Russo then invited Paul Heyman to update his repertoire: "I've followed all the Raw and SmackDown episodes that have aired in the last decade, so I know what I'm talking about. Paul Heyman's promos have been the same for years and years, I guarantee you.
WWE management should find new ways to make her character more endearing. Every week we see Paul Heyman walking into the ring, doing the same promos and repeating the same lines. A breakthrough would be needed, but Vince McMahon thinks differently.
I don't understand why the company insists on paying so much for a character who always does the same things. He has become boring after all these years." Words that will certainly be a topic of discussion. Pat McAfee had Brock Lesnar as his guest on a recent episode of The Pat McAfee Show, where he praised the former Universal Champion for being welcoming to him when they met for the first time.
Lesnar paid back the compliment, praising McAfee's commentary work on SmackDown. "I was a big fan of yours (Pat McAfee), it was an honor to meet you, and I just got a good vibe, how you get a good vibe when you get a handshake, good people.
I have to tell you, though, you make the show, Friday nights, your commentary is bar none like the best," said Lesnar about McAfee.
