At WWE RAW’s 30th-Anniversary show, the main event was a United States Championship match between Bobby Lashley and Austin Theory. It was a No-Disqualification match in which Lashley had earned his #1 Contender spot last week on RAW. He had defeated Seth Rollins, Baron Corbin, Finn Balor, The Miz and Dolph Ziggler in a six-man elimination match.
In the title match, both Theory and Lashley were giving each other hell until Lesnar’s music hit. He emerged laughing at the ramp and made his way to the ring. Lesnar immediately hit an F-5 on a tired Lashley and then proceeded to F-5 Theory on Lashley’s body. Since it was a No DQ match, this led to a pinfall and Austin Theory retained the title.

This means there’s going to be a rubber match between The Beast Incarnate and The All Mighty. RAW XXX ended without any official announcement about when we will see these bulls lock horns next time. The first one was won by Lashley and the second one by Lesnar. The third one should take place at WrestleMania 39, WrestleMania Goes Hollywood, in April.
Reportedly, the two physical specimens were supposed to face each other at Day 1 earlier this month. However WWE scrapped that Premium Live Event. In their last face-off at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, Lesnar won inadvertently but Lashley stood tall in the end. He applied the Hurt Lock on Brock and laid him out in the middle of the ring.

It seems that’s the reason why Lesnar is back. He is back for retribution.
Bobby Lashley really is the kryptonite to Brock Lesnar. Both are the same in many ways. They are both legit MMA fighters with multiple wins in MMA bouts. They both have collegiate wrestling backgrounds and are almost the same age. The internet used to call Lashley the Black Lesnar in the past. Them facing each other at the grandest stage of them all without any outside interference should be the Main Event.
