A little unexpectedly, in the last episode of RAW's Season Premiere, The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar returned and, without delay and in a few words, went face to face with Lashley, then knocked him out. within minutes, causing him to lose the United States title to Seth Rollins.
WWE was pleasantly surprised by the return of the Next Big Thing, but according to some, the segment between Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley had some major flaws.
Brock Lesnar is back
To note the problems related to this segment was the former historic WWE manager Jim Cornette who in the last episode of his podcast, or Jim Cornette's Drive Thru, pointed out how no WWE Official intervened on schedule to preserve some the physical status of the then US champion Bobby Lashley, being almost "destroyed" by the brute force of Brock Lesnar.
Cornette, without too many filters, harshly criticized the WWE and its officials for the timing too slow to come to the rescue of Bobby Lashley, since, according to him, they had to intervene long before it actually happened: "Yes, he was also surprised him [Bobby Lashley, ed] from the return of Brock Lesnar.
That attack, no one imagined it could happen, not even Bobby himself could imagine that he was about to engulf him in a tornado. And, I add, the fact that no one intervened to help him, that no one divided them, the fact that we found out that Lashley has no friends and that no one cares about him, is quite disconcerting.
Then, once everything is finished, after the break, the referees come out from behind the scenes to help him and check how he was, about five / six ... Where were you sons of a good woman a minute ago when they needed a hand, right? Then the arrival of Rollins who demands the match and plays on the feelings of Lashley who, after the clash with Lesnar, can barely stand on his legs ...
it is incredible what happened." Hall of Fame journalist Bill Apter recently commented on the big title switch and placed all the blame on the shoulders of The Beast Incarnate. Apter stated that it was all "Brock Lesnar's fault" in an exclusive quote provided to our platform: "Two injured warriors with US gold at stake. Seth Rollins with two curb stomps wins the title from Lashley. And you know what? It's all Brock Lesnar's fault."
