WWE fans are anticipating fireworks when Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley share the ring with each other this weekend.
The bout is scheduled to take place on Saturday at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia and Lesnar and Lashley gave fans a taste of what is to come during this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
The pair were supposed to be taking part in a split-screen interview prior to their Crown Jewel face-off, however, Lesnar refused to turn up for the interview, and Lashley, who was already mic’d up and ready to go, emerged at ringside to confront The Beast Incarnate who was already in the ring.
This led to a massive brawl between the two, which will surely add spice to Saturday's bout.
Lesnar is one of WWE’s most fearsome characters. Known as The Beast, he was consistently the main attraction during what fans came to call the Ruthless Aggression Era of WWE. He was a genuine athlete with fantastic strength and movement. As well as WWE, where he won the World Championship at only 25 years of age, and reigned as Universal Champion for 504 days, Lesnar is a former UFC heavyweight champion and a former professional American footballer. Lashley, meanwhile, is an eight-time world champion, and is also known for his achievements in MMA.
It took the whole locker room and a collection of WWE officials to stop the brawl and Triple H ordered both men to stop fighting, threatening to cancel their match at Crown Jewel. However, following this, The Beast Incarnate got to quench some of his thirst for violence in an unaired segment.

As Raw went off the air, Lesnar re-entered the ring and met Adam Pearce. The WWE official told him to leave the ring, only for the 10-time world champion to kick him in the gut and deliver one of his favourite moves, the F-5. Lesnar then posed for the fans and swung his cowboy hat around.
Some fans captured the incident and posted it on Twitter. A number of fans reacted, one tweeting: “Nobody tells Brock what to do!”
Others suggested that Lesnar, and possibly Lashley, could end up with a fine or a suspension while others expressed sympathy for Pearce.

This is not the first time Lesnar has F-5'd Pearce. The Beast Incarnate did so on the SmackDown after Crown Jewel 2021. Back then, he had been suspended for assaulting the WWE crew and Superstars who had stopped him from going after Roman Reigns and The Usos.
Lesnar has history with Lashley and it is clear that he is determined to come out on top in Saudi Arabia, however, victory over The Almighty will not be an easy feat.
