According to the latest announcements for the event at the MSG to be held shortly by WWE, current WWE Champion Brock Lesnar no longer has an opponent for the event, as Bobby Lashley has been officially removed from the card, probably due to his injury that will keep him out for a while.
Additionally, Roman Reigns' universal champion title match has also changed, as the tribal leader will no longer defend his belt against Seth Rollins, who now seems more geared towards the tag team scene with Kevin Owens.
How's Bobby Lashley doing?
The advertisement for the event reads: “'The Beast Incarnate' Brock Lesnar will defend his WWE Championship! Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship! Both champions in the same arena on the same night!
... RAW Women's Championship Triple Threat Match - Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair vs. Rhea Ripley ... Tag Team Match - Winner of the 2022 Royal Rumble Ronda Rousey & Naomi vs. Smackdown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair & Sonya Deville ...
Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match - Big E & Kofi Kingston's New Day vs. Usos ... Plus, even more of your favorite Superstars will be in live-action: Seth 'Freakin' Rollins, Drew McIntyre, AJ Styles, RK-Bro, Sasha Banks, and many more!" After Elimination Chamber, Bobby Lashley flew to Birmingham, Alabama to visit the WWE medical staff, with the orthopedic department currently working there, in a specialized clinic used for his athletes by the McMahon company.
As reported by PW Insider, the WWE doctors will now have to evaluate Bobby Lashley's injury, doing all the necessary tests, to understand if the All Mighty shoulder is really to be operated and therefore the athlete will have to stay out at least 4 months, thus also skipping Wrestlemania 38.
