Since his return to WWE in 2012, Brock Lesnar has largely been involved with a select few opponents. The Beast Incarnate had long feuds with John Cena and Triple H before mixing it up with CM Punk and The Undertaker. Wins over all the men mentioned above propelled him into a multi-year program with Roman Reigns as the two were on-again, off-again rivals from 2015 until last summer. With the rivalry between Lesnar and Reigns seemingly in the permanent rear view, the former WWE Champion is once again open to business and has set his sights on old foe Bobby Lashley.
Lesnar and Lashley first met on WWE Royal Rumble 2022, in which The All-Mighty secured a stealthy victory over The Beast thanks to Reigns’ help. Lesnar reclaimed his win last fall WWE crown jewel, but Lashley walked out of Saudi Arabia looking like the stronger man. Lashley got the upper hand in last week’s men’s Royal Rumble match, knocking Lesnar out of the multi-man battle royal.
As that elimination blasted the Alamodome, another Lesnar moment from the premium live event sent social media buzzing. Shortly after entering the match, Lesnar faced WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther. This brought to life a long-running dream match, if only briefly.
Gunther himself is well aware of the potential that comes with a proper showdown with Lesnar.
“Brock is a one-in-a-million, one-in-ten million man,” Gunther said The Rob Brown Show. “I’ve always loved those guys who stand out from the pack. I’ve always loved his matches and been very impressed by that and also the past few years in WWE.”
Gunther continued, noting that he sees Lesnar as his “final boss”.
“I always thought it would be a wrestling thing and my style, that’s my final boss,” Gunther continued. “I’ve been portrayed as the final boss in wrestling to a lot of guys, but I think Brock could be my final boss. I really hope the match fails at some point.”
It was once rumored that Gunther and Lesnar had a WWE Wrestle Mania 39 collide, but both men seem to be going in different directions. Lesnar is expected to finish his trilogy with Lashley, while Gunther is supposedly set for a triple threat championship defense against Drew McIntyre and Sheamus.
WWE Wrestle Mania 39 falls on April 1 and April 2.
