• Bad News Regarding The WWE Title Match At WrestleMania 38
As seen at tonight’s Royal Rumble 2022 premiere live event, Bobby Lashley defeated Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship.
Lashley is a 2-time WWE Champion now. However, this victory wasn’t clean.
Universal Champion Roman Reigns interfered in the match and attacked The Beast. Reigns laid out Lesnar with the WWE Title belt, which was handed to him by Paul Heyman. Reigns and Heyman are back together.
Lashley then took advantage and pinned Lesnar. Prior to Reigns’ interference, Lesnar had Lashley beat with the F5, but the referee was accidentally knocked out after Lashley landed on him during the F5.
According to Wrestlevotes, WWE doesn’t have a plan set in stone for the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania 38 at the moment:
“Lesnar had to be the winner here. I’m told they legitimately have no idea what the WWE Title match at WrestleMania is going to be at this point. Avoid the old pigeon hole.”
Bobby Lashley entered last year’s WrestleMania as the WWE Champion and retained the Title against Drew McIntyre.
