• Reason Behind Brock Lesnar & Drew McIntyre Having A Very Short Exchange In The End At Royal Rumble 2022
In the Men’s Royal Rumble 2022 match, Brock Lesnar and Drew McIntyre were the final 2 men left, and they fought for a very short time, before Lesnar F5ed McIntyre out of the ring to win the match.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Brock and Drew were scheduled to fight longer in the end, but WWE was forced to quickly finish the match due to time issues:
“The original plan for the Rumble was for Lesnar to destroy everyone except give something to McIntyre before beating him.
Lesnar was going to do what he wanted, but Lesnar put McIntyre over huge in 2020 in both angles and at Mania and did not have an issue with it.
They did a face-off basically to call attention to their 2020 program, but had little time because the show had to be off the air at the 4-hour mark because of PPV (which still exists) and some international commitments so they were very low on time.”
