#5 Update on if Brock Lesnar will face RAW’s Bobby Lashley after return
There has been a lot of buzz in regards to a possible Brock Lesnar return to RAW soon. WWE Champion Bobby Lashley has gone on record multiple times to state that he wants to have a match against The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar when he returns.
However, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has stated that WWE currently has no such plans for RAW superstar Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar. In fact, he says that the chances of Lesnar returning for a match against Roman Reigns are higher at this point.
Speaking of Lashley calling out Brock Lesnar on RAW last week, here is what Meltzer wrote:
”Wonder if that’s a hint because Lashley vs. Lesnar would be a big SummerSlam match. But if that’s the case, Lashley has to beat McIntyre at Hell in a Cell. Anyway, this is the status of Lashley vs. Lesnar. If they paid Lesnar enough they could get it done,” said Meltzer.
With SummerSlam set to take place in August, there is a high chance that Brock Lesnar will finally return. It remains to be seen who WWE chooses as his opponent once he returns.
