Brock Lesnar didn’t waste anytime to make his presence known on Raw.
After being announced late Monday afternoon that he would be showing up on tonight’s (Oct. 29) episode, Lesnar interrupted Corbin in the opening segment.
Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman got his speech in about Crown Jewel and then Braun Strowman interrupted him. Strowman cut a promo of his own and didn’t really say much.
The Monster Among Men then looked to get his hands on Lesnar but was cut off by Corbin. The peace didn’t last long, as Strowman punked Corbin with a couple of running powerslams before Lesnar causally attacked him when his back was turned.
It's gearing up to be a contentious match for the #UniversalChampionship between @BrockLesnar & @BraunStrowman... #Raw pic.twitter.com/Hi6mOPdukh— WWE (@WWE) October 30, 2018
ONE TOO MANY #RunningPowerslams from @BraunStrowman to @BaronCorbinWWE, because the #MonsterAmongMen just ran into an #F5!#RAW #WWECrownJewel @BrockLesnar @HeymanHustle pic.twitter.com/liBNY7l920— WWE (@WWE) October 30, 2018
Even by Lesnar standards, that was way too easy.
Couple this with Strowman’s Money in the Bank cash-in strategy and it has not been a good few month’s for The Monster’s fight IQ.
Did any of this get you excited for Friday’s Universal title match at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia?
