WWE Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley

A true clash of the titans is set for Royal Rumble! Newly crowned WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will go head-to-head with Bobby Lashley.

After Universal Champion Roman Reigns was unable to compete at WWE Day 1 due to COVID protocols, the intimidating Lesnar insisted he be added to the WWE Championship Match at the inaugural Premium Live Event. Out of the furious free-for-all of the Fatal 5-Way, The Beast overcame Lashley, Big E, Seth “Freakin’” Rollins and Kevin Owens to claim the WWE Title and once again stand on top of the mountain.

Two days later, The All Mighty stormed back onto Raw and reestablished himself as the next challenger to The Conqueror by emerging victorious in a Fatal 4-Way Match against Owens, Rollins and Big E, the very match originally scheduled for WWE Day 1. Lashley earned the opportunity on the same night the WWE Champion reunited with his advocate, Paul Heyman.

Now, brace yourself as the two intense Superstars lock horns in what promises to be an explosive showdown. Don’t miss Royal Rumble, Saturday, Jan. 29, at 8 ET/5 PT, streaming live on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.
